Since 1966, Guidecraft has created educational toys and products for the early childhood education market. Recently, Guidecraft has developed a language of materials and outcomes in our offerings that emphasizes open and contextual products that allow children to have unique and creative experiences. We focus on nature-based learning models within the context of constructivist toy systems, such as unit blocks, Notch Blocks, IO Blocks, and more and then follow through in our classroom offerings. We believe that environment dictates learning outcome and that children learn best in nature-based environments, where the emphasis is on creative learning models that focus on children, families, communities, arts, and culture. Working globally, we partner with distributors, universities, authors, publishers, design companies, preschool groups, and governments who share a similar vision.
