What is the Wonder Studio?
The wonder studio is a play place for the youngest learners.  Children (ages 18 mos. and up) will participate in a broad range of developmentally appropriate experiences.  These experiences include a loving parent or caregiver who is dedicated to joining his/her child in discovery and exploration.
At The Wonder Studio…children will have repeated scientific opportunities to strengthen their disposition for curiosity, creativity, and co-learning.  Adults will gain an understanding of non-traditional approaches to chemistry, physics, biology, and ecology for the youngest children. 
Children will discover the joys of working with one another through full-bodied arts investigations.  Caregivers will develop an understanding for using the arts as a tool for thinking in guiding their young child’s development.   
These classes are inspired by the pre-schools of Reggio-Emilia, Italy and the studio incorporates philosophies from Waldorf, Bev Bos, and Gardner’s theory of Multiple Intelligences.

The Wonder Studio classes provide children with experiences that are:  multi-sensory, messy, process oriented and open-ended.

All classes include songs, finger plays, stories, and puppetry.

Shannon Lipan has a Master’s degree in Early Childhood Education from the University of Florida.  She taught at Shorecrest Preparatory School for 6 years and has been the Owner and teacher at The Wonder Studio for 8 years.  Inspired by the schools of Reggio Emilia, Italy, Shannon believes that children learn best through meaningful, hands-on experiences.  She will provide an environment that allows children to have opportunities for repeated problem-solving experimentation.
