About

Our Mission

To create objects of lasting importance that enrich the lives of children and articulate and define creative, joyful, and meaningful experiences.

Today

Classroom and playroom design choices, as well as the furniture chosen and toys offered, are all instrumental parts of early childhood education. Through each of these avenues, Guidecraft strives to create learning environments that are wholly inspiring and enriching to a child.

With an emphasis on the use of natural materials and loose parts theory, we create open-ended toys that unleash a child’s imagination through free, unstructured play. Our home furniture focuses on engaging children in artistic, literary, and dramatic play activities while our preschool furniture collections straddle the needs of both teachers and parents to provide authentic, nature-inspired, and sensory choices in some uniquely beautiful ways.
