Important Notice on Adult Accompaniment:
Plain as Play adopts a drop-off concept at our studio to provide the best learning environment for our little ones. To inspire our minimakers to work independently, adult accompaniment is not encouraged. We place a priority on space for our minimakers to explore - and hence, any accompaniment is subject to discretion by our playmakers and is chargeable at $35/hour (non-deductible from bundles).
Plain as Play?
Play may appear simple, yet it is profound to a child's development.
Play contains ALL developmental tendencies and is in itself, a major origin of development. The maker movement overlaps children's natural inclination to play and learn by doing, transitioning them from being passive receivers of knowledge to real-world makers.
At Plain as Play, our experienced playmakers celebrate our minimakers' process of design and making, nurturing a growth mindset and building their confidence as competent problem solvers.
Through multiple interactive installations and exhibitions that routinely evolve within our studio, we evoke a child's sense of agency - a crucial component of early childhood development.
Why do children instinctively stack and sort when given a set of blocks?
Because it is human nature to create, we are meant to be makers.
We've purposefully designed our studio to stimulate imagination! Plain as Play is a safe space that promotes critical thinking and creative expression.
Our drop-off studio is a collection of dynamic mixed-media installations, constructed to inspire growth, decision-making and learning through play.

I can’t recommend this place anymore highly to anyone looking for an independent play space for your children. Thé facilitators are ex school Teachers and are caring and attentive and have a calming presence. The play space itself is absolutely gorgeous and well curated. A lot of thought has gone into building this place. It’s been a joy for my child to attend weekly.
