Our mission is to create an engaging space where children are empowered to explore and build the community around them through play.
Access to play has a monumental impact on the physical, psychological, and emotional development of a child. Studies show that Play-Based Learning enhances critical thinking, problem solving, social skills, and comprehension. It is through play that children learn how to interact in their environment as well as with their peers and caregivers. Open-ended materials and experiences help us create a “Yes” environment for children to build confidence and learn to master new skills.
At Dig It, we welcome every child to discover, to laugh, to climb, to dig, to make, to run, to create, to ask questions, and to seek answers.
Crystal McGinnis grew up enjoying mud days in her backyard and extreme tent building with her brother. It is no wonder that she has grown up to become an ambassador of play-based learning. Crystal has more than 20 years of experience facilitating programs for children and their families across Los Angeles, including her very own Crystal Camp mobile school and camps. She is excited to bring her love of science, the arts, and getting her hands dirty to the Dig It Crew.
