Baby Purple Dragons
For children 2.5 to 3.5 years of age.
The Baby “Purple” Dragons classroom is painted a lovely shade of lavender which suggests refinement along with grace and elegance.
Shades of purple have a special relationship with nature, and this classroom looks out into the garden. The use of lavender signifies balance and allows the children to know they are unique and special. It can calm the mind and encourage creativity.

When not teaching, Ms. Mel is trying out new restaurants (she’s a new vegan), curating new tattoo ideas, spending time with 1 out of her 8 siblings, or traveling to new hiking destinations with friends. She is thrilled for an exciting summer and can’t wait to be a part of the fall school year.
