About Magical Minds Studio

Early Childhood Visual and Sensory Art Studio

Magical Minds Studio opened it doors in October of 2007, offering children 18 months and older a chance to experience hands-on creative learning through process-driven art. Since then we have redeveloped our programs to accommodate the needs of our community, and to provide parents and children the kinds of programs they can benefit from the most.

About Haj, Founder & Creative Mom

The birth of Magical Minds Studio began after Haj became a mother herself. With an art education background she knew the importance of art in a young child’s life. She searched within the community for a place where her child could freely explore all the possibilities art had to offer. Unfortunately, she couldn’t find a place. So when a friend told her about a storefront for rent she explored the possibilities of opening up a studio. With the support and hard work of her husband Tom, together they built Magical Minds Studio.

The studio is designed for children to come and express themselves, grow their spirits, work on skills that will help them in future educational settings and have fun!

Our Core Principals

Rooted in the Reggio Emilia philosophy, our morning preschool and after school classes focus on a process of inviting and sustaining learning. We offer a creative outlet for the mind and soul of every artist. It doesn’t stop there – we offer camps, birthday parties, and more!

Children’s relationships and interactions within a school

Learning must focus on each child, not considered in isolation, but seen in relation with the family, with other children, with the teachers, with the environment of the school, with the community, and with the wider society.

Teachers and children as partners in learning

Teachers are not considered protective baby-sitters, teaching basic skills to children but rather they are understood to be learners along with the children. They are valued for their experience, their ideas and their love of children.

The role of space

The lay-out of physical space fosters encounters, communication, and relationships. Children learn a great deal in exchanges and negotiations with their peers; therefore teachers organize spaces that support the engagement of small groups.

The image of the child

All children have preparedness, potential and curiosity. They should be considered active citizens with rights, and contributing members of their families and community.
