Inspiring creativity, nurturing connection…
Creative Roots is an Integrated Learning and Wellness Center, empowering kids and adults of all ages with creative experiences to build life-long wellness. Using creativity, the arts, nature and our current knowledge of neurobiology and the power of relationships, Creative Roots encourages children, families and the caring professionals who work with them, to create life-long connections to learning, the world around us, and to each other.
At Creative Roots, we inspire kids and adults to explore their individual creativity and form connections. We empower our clients with information and tools for optimal learning; opportunities to increase self-awareness, self-expression and self-confidence; and collaborative partnerships to nurture significant and supportive connections.
Our professional staff offers unique and alternative solutions. We listen carefully, observe closely and develop strong collaborative relationships with our participants, their families and their support networks, to cultivate supportive relationships. Accessing current research in interpersonal neurobiology, somatics and holistic health practices, we offer up-to-date skills and strategies to integrate in natural learning environments. Using the arts, we help you tap into your own inner sense of knowing and well being to empower you with the skills and experiences you need for life-long learning and development.

Current research shows that using the whole body and brain throughout development enhances academic learning, social skills, creativity, and connections to the world around us. These connections in turn create a sense of well-being; reducing anxiety, depression, experiencing support for learning challenges, empowering both children and adults to choose and focus on what is most meaningful to them.
Our programs support families and communities to embrace the benefits of integrated wellness and life-long learning. Incorporating an inspiring blend of alternative education, creativity, integrated wellness and FUN, we offer programs which can access a sense of wellbeing at any age. Kids and adults alike enjoy programs including yoga, art classes, academic tutoring, camps, afterschool care, support for homeschoolers, prenatal yoga, parent coaching, professional development, and more!
We look forward to working AND playing with you at Creative Roots!
If you have any questions, please contact us. We look forward to seeing you soon!
