New Daycare With Art In Mind Holding Open House

December 9, 2011

Over the last five years, I have visited loads of daycares and schools for the blog, so it’s exciting when I can suggest a daycare that I think is worth looking into for your child.  Sitters Studio , a well respected sitting service, has decided to expand to a brick and mortar and open a daycare in Carroll Gardens.  I have used them personally and love their philosophy of employing professional artists as sitters. The artsitters combine their training and love of art with their passion for childcare. Think of it this way: when we came home one night after having an artsitter, my son complained that I “didn’t do the voices” in the books like his sitter did and I certainly didn’t know how to properly dance with scarves!

The new Studio Daycare is called Cassatt Studio Daycare, I’m guessing after the famous female Impressionist painter who was known for her child portraiture.  The daycare is based “in an art centered philosophy that allows toddlers to learn the most important thing of all: creativity.  Using music, theatre, visual art, and dance, the children work on motor skills, cognitive skills, language skills, and social – emotional skills.”

They are currently accepting students for the spring semester . Sign up soon as their class size will be strictly limited to 10 kids.

This weekend they are hosting an open house so that you can see their space, do a craft, play in their backyard and discuss why art is one of the most important aspects of a child’s life.

Dawn Mordarski is the Director of Cassatt Studio Daycare. Her bio from their site reads, “Dawn has worked at Sitters Studio for almost two years and is a favorite to many of our families. Before coming to us, Dawn spent several years as a Pre-School teacher at The Children’s Playhouse daycare on Long Island, where she ran a 2 & 3 Year Old Classroom for 2 years, and then a 4 & 5 Year Old Classroom with a Pre-K Curriculum for 2 years. There, she used art projects, songs, stories, cooking and outside play to teach social and academic skills. She is excited to merge her daycare experience with the artisitter childcare philosophy.”

I hired Sitters Studio for an event after experiencing their services at our home and at another event.   Here is a photo of some of the sitters and the kids they took care of that day. Can you imagine how much fun it would be to have these gals watch you all day, every day?!

On Sunday December 11 from 10AM  – 12PM, Sitters Studio will be hosting an open house at their Studio Daycare in Carroll Gardens.
