Researching the benefits of Montessori, play-based, sensory & exploratory learning models can be an overwhelming task for anyone. Add in a large dash of parental concern, the desire to set your little one up for success and it can be all too much to handle.

We get it. While we are huge advocates for adding a healthy dose of play into your life at any age, we also know you may need a little convincing from the experts on the subject. They’ve done the research, we just want to give you and your children the freedom to unleash their own creativity. So let’s dive in and see what the experts are saying about the benefits of play-based learning & how the benefits will set your child up for a successful future. 


"the number one most important factor for a child's future success is creativity." - Dr. Laura. A. Jana

While creativity can be singled out as a key skill to foster in childhood development, other skills like adaptability, innovation, imagination, focus, teamwork, active listening , curiosity and perseverance are also equally important. Coincidentally, these are all skills that can be experienced, taught and learnt through participating in a kids pottery class or engaging in some clay play. 

Another common theme amongst childhood education experts, who focus on the areas of play-based learning models, is also the importance of maintaining curiosity and protecting a child’s naturally inquisitive nature. Providing them with the space to learn, think, question and act on their own is a gift in itself for their personal, emotional and educational development. This is known as the gift of freedom, balanced with limits and responsibilities. Providing them with basic instruction but the freedom to explore, adapt and be empowered to act on their own is the key to doing just that.

In a kids pottery class at Stone Studio, you and your child (parents are required to attend with their child for some classes), are given all the tools you could need, basic instruction and an example to follow, with the twist of encouraging everyone to take their own creative spin on a class, course, or piece of clay. We want to empower your little one, giving them the place and the space they need to explore their curiosity and express themselves freely.
