I had the great fortune to visit ARROW (Athens Rumpus Room Or Workspace), a new place for kids to play and learn in Athens, Georgia (it's next to Big City Café). The workspace part of the name is for the grown-ups; ARROW will also serve as an outlet for parents in the community to meet, craft, or work (they hope to have various workshops and classes). It was started by a seriously amazing duo, Amanda Kapousouz and Rinne Allen. Arrow is geared toward early childhood education and so much fun! It is Waldorf-inspired and has activities like Morning Garden and Music days. I was there on Music Day! Amanda played Irish fiddle for the kids while they danced and played with the other instruments.
They're currently only open to members, but hope to open up to the public soon! Here are a few photos from my visit. The full set can be seen HERE.
