What happens when you combine...
Art Beast Children's Studio
+ an acre of land
+ the legacy of Tiny Tots, Sacramento's longest running parent participation preschool
= Muck and Wonder Farm School
Tiny Tots Parent Participation Preschool, which opened in 1949, was the longest running parent participation preschool in the Sacramento area. Generations of children graduated from their play-based, open air learning environment through the years.
Art Beast Children's Studio, opened in 2009, has been dedicated to providing creative space for children and families to engage with the arts and one another.
In 2018, Art Beast Children's Studio was offered the space. We jumped at this opportunity to imagine Art Beast's values and celebration of play transposed into a space with a huge outdoors.
The property will house a newly remodeled and updated play-based, parent participation preschool focused on child-directed play and building a vibrant community of families. The environment will continue in the legacy of Tiny Tots and in the tradition of Art Beast, creating spaces that offer opportunity for inventive, interactive, and child-directed play.
Art Beast is a program of Waking the Village. As with all Waking the Village programs, the proceeds from Muck & Wonder Farm School help sustain our programs for children and youth overcoming homelessness. The community of families gathering at this school helps build healthy communities for more families in Sacramento.
The school features a 1200 square foot building with an art studio, a builders space, dramatic play spaces, a loft, and a library.
The outdoor space includes climbing structures, swings, dirt and asphalt trails for riding bikes, gardens, a playhouse, and lots of room to move and explore.
We are so excited to be building our community of families! We will begin sessions for the 2018-2019 school year on September 4th, 2018.
If your family is interested in joining, complete the registration below. You can complete your registration now (and secure a spot) or indicate interest on our wait list form so that we ensure you receive updates as we get closer to September.
We will be holding an Open House in August once final renovations are complete to tour the space and meet the directors.
