Located in the playground of the school, the studio is an extension of the classroom used at various times by all the children. In this bright, warm room, children are encouraged to express their interests in a variety of creative “languages”. This dynamic environment is ever changing based on the children’s investigations.
The free moment of the children to access the atelier and work on their projects whenever the atelierista is available during the morning program is an integral part of the Reggio program.
Why The Atelier Environment?
The Atelierista at Aspirations is an Early Childhood Development teacher with a background specializing in the Visual Arts. Her role is to support teachers and work with children to develop projects summarizing learning experiences using a variety of mediums such as wire, clay, paint and recycled materials.
The Atelierista is also intimately involved in the process of documentation and is responsible for developing and maintaining the Atelier; a beautiful, useful arts space that models the principles of the Reggio Emilia Approach.

Testimonials About ABC Children's Center
We were lucky enough to take a tour of ABC at a time when one spot opened up in their infant program, and snagged the spot.
I have two grandchildren that have been attending ABC for several years. The oldest is thriving in kindergarten now! Having started at ABC at 17 months old, I believe ABC had a great hand in preparing her.
My daughter has been going here since she was 15 year old. She is now almost 4 years. She transitioned through different classes. She liked going to school everyday and loved her teachers and activities.
Very professional and well trained staff. Facility is clean, well organized, always attend to my kids on whatever they need. would highly recommend this daycare facility.
Have known ABC for almost 20 years. I grew up around the area and now my kids go to ABC. The teachers are great! They really care about the children and their growth. They give customized suggestions to parents as they watch and see the child’s growth, which I am thankful for since I am a working mom.
