Our mission at The Monarch Studio is to provide support and play for growing families.  Our beautiful studio has the timeless charm of pressed tin walls and ceilings, creating a very welcoming feel.  Those that enter say the space has “healing and tranquil” feel to it.  It is an open room, flooded with natural light allowing plenty of room for adults to gather and children to play, learn, and discover. As you enter the front door there are welcoming benches to sit and remove your shoes and ample room to park strollers.  Our large windows have curtains that block the view from the street creating privacy for our classes and support groups.  We have extremely comfortable folding floor chairs that adults and children love.  We ensure the studio is cleaned regularly with natural cleaning products and disinfectants.
