Would you ever go to a nursery school for adults? (seriously, because one exists)

April 21, 2015

Have you ever wanted to go back to nursery school to relive those good ol’ days of finger painting, making Rice Crispie cookies, threading uncooked noodles onto string to make a necklace, or banging on the tambourine or triangle?


I’ve often thought about the joys of dress-up and sand castles again, and so has Michelle Joni, who has founded Preschool Mastermind is a Brooklyn-based concept, aimed at giving adults a preschool experience.


Adults can experience arts and crafts, show and tell, snack time, music, naps, lessons, games, make believe and a field trip. Fees are on a sliding scale, and start at $333 up to US$999, and the classes are run from Michelle’s apartment, weekly for a month.

Here’s what they write on the Preschool Mastermind website:

Imagine… if you could go back to preschool.
And imagine… if I was the teacher.


This is the first ever PRESCHOOL MASTERMIND

From the laughter and glitter-dusted trail of the nationally-recognized Skipping Club, I introduce to you a brand new course for grownups to re-learn the basics, and experience the ::magic:: of life as it was originally intended. Guess what: You still CAN be anything you want when you grow up! And this class will give you the hands-on wisdom, intuition and playfulness you need to get there.

We’ll explore preschool concepts, like sharing and friendship, in order to apply and inject play, wonder, self-belief, and community into our grown-up lives.


– arts and crafts (finger-paint, play dough, glitter glue, YES PLEASE) 
– show and tell (share your material stories to uncover clues on your spiritual path) 
– snack time (with themes planned by you!) 
– music time (with special rockstar guests)
– nap time (the best time ever)

– lessons and playsheets (learning is FUN!) 
– buddy system (a BFF to keep you accountable for awesomeness) 
– games (i mean, does anyone remember how much fun musical chairs is?)   
– make believe (your imagination is needed!) 
– class picture day (dress your 4-year-old best)
– a field trip, obviously  
– All students will be given homework in the form of challenges, prompts, playsheets. Expect to get out of your ordinary routine and leave a trail of ::magic::!


Is this a crazy concept, or a cool one?
