The Creative Learning Lab is a safe and inspiring space for remote or homeschool learners.  The CLL was established to allow its members a place for personal development and collaborative inspiration. 

The CREATIVE LEARNING LAB is NOT a Day Care or a School - it is a safe space for children and teens to collaborate, motivate, and accelerate!  Learners will utilize their own chosen homeschool or sending town curriculum and our staff will help to keep children and young adults organized, energized, and ahead of their goals.  Students will engage independently with their own assignments and projects, as well as, collaboratively through creative project based learning experiences.

10,000 square feet of clean, open space = ENDLESS OPPORTUNITIES!

We will:
• Staff members will assist Lab members with their chosen academic curriculum, whether it be sending town allocated or a         home-school / online curriculum. 

• Staff will help students set daily and long-term goals, un-pack assignments, find resources, create organization systems, lead     creative / collaborative workshops, and monitor overall social-emotional well-being and growth.  

• Offer feed-back and motivation

• We will create and maintain a safe learning environment, ensuring students' safety above all else.

• We will establish a "personal space" for each learner.

• We will  work in small cohorts of roughly 6 students and a leader (families/friends may bubble and develop own cohort).

• We will offer a different arts-based workshop each week (Ex: music technology, song-writing, still-life drawing, fashion design).

We will not:
• Assess assignments or report grades

• Provide lunch

• Jeopardize the health of our members - learners and staff.

• Administer medication
