We're so happy you're here!
We're Jodi and Anne, and we are expert educators and child development nerds! We have a combined 20+ years of experience teaching children and master's degrees in Education. Our time in schools inspired an obsession with child development and a mastery of organizational systems and structures that specifically WORK for kiddos! Add in parenting four kids between us, an eye for design, and a love of beautiful, peaceful spaces ... and TA DA, grOH! was born.
The spaces we spend the most time in impact how children (and adults) feel, live, and learn. Research tells us that play is the most powerful way to engage and teach children, so a child’s physical play environment is incredibly impactful. We have experienced and witnessed the power of the play environment first-hand in our classrooms and in our homes. Designing play spaces is about creating an environment that supports the whole child — their learning, their interests, their friendships, and their relationship with family and community!
You are your child's first teacher. Your child's environment is the second; it is the foundation for learning experiences. Every child deserves a space where they feel safe, curious, and inspired to learn. Every parent deserves to feel equipped to give their children what they need to thrive. We would love to support you to create a play-based learning space for your children.
We cannot wait to work with you and transform your play space!
Jodi + Anne
