Discovery Play Studio 

Designed by Maria Inzerella, M.Ed., this early childhood educational program in Lafayette encourages discovery through free play in a sensory-rich environment. Imaginative free play is essential for brain development, and sensory-based learning helps children to understand the world around them. The LSPA Discovery Play Studio entices children to learn as they play spontaneously and hands-on with a selection of carefully curated materials, like beautiful wooden blocks, a seasonally changing sensory bin, a light table with interesting objects, enticing sensory trays, and more. This unstructured play happens in a soothing environment with calm music and ambient lighting, and the class even ends with warm scented washcloths for each child.


Discovery Play — Grown-Up + Me (Toddler to Age 3)

In these Lafayette preschool classes, children engage in free play in the Discovery Play Studio, a sensory-rich environment free of commercial toys. The grown-up facilitates as the child delves into creative play, which develops their physical, manual, social, intellectual, and emotional well-being.

Discovery Play — Ages 3 to 6 

In the Discovery Play Studio at LSPA, children take a break from busy schedules to move at their own pace and explore their surroundings in a sensory-rich environment. With self-initiated play, children pursue what interests them, let their imaginations run wild, and work collaboratively with peers, which allow them to practice decision-making skills and gain important social and emotional learning experiences.
