About

Plum Patch is the project of two Capitol Hill moms of toddlers who want their kids to have more opportunities to create, explore and have fun in a class-based environment. We believe in:

  • using recycled materials whenever possible
  • letting kids make their own work and also collaborate together
  • getting messy and having a lot of fun
