The Place: Sweet Academy is a space designed 100% for children from an early childhood development perspective. Whether you drop your child off for yoga, reading support, art, mindfulness, or just to "stay and play," my goal is that your child will leave feeling seen and heard.
The Owner: I have been a kindergarten teacher since 2005 in Mystic, CT, my hometown! I would like to enhance the community in which I grew up by offering thoughtful classes/workshops for children that are fun but also educational. I developed this idea with my late mother, daughter of local fisherman, who taught me how to appreciate the beauty of my town and also nurture the childhood spirit. Meet me here and learn about our Indiegogo Campaign!
