Kids in Art Class




Ximena and Daniel stand at the forefront of childhood education, sharing a unique approach that involves art, play, and learning. As the founders of CreatewithXnD, they have embarked on a mission to redefine how children experience creativity and education.


Their journey began in the town of Greenwich, CT, where they both served as Early Childhood teachers. It was here that they recognized a shared passion: a strong belief in the power of play and art as tools for learning and self-expression.

They possess a deep understanding of the developmental needs of young minds due to their years of experience in the  classroom and their own education, both holding a Masters Degree in Early Childhood Education. Armed with this knowledge, they aim to create an immersive art experience tailored specifically for children.


At CreatewithXnD, Ximena and Daniel provide organized playgroups, art classes, sensory play sessions, and birthday parties designed to engage children aged 18 months to 8 years old. Their curriculum is not merely a collection of activities; it's a carefully crafted journey that fosters creativity, curiosity, and confidence in every child.


But beyond the messy play and laughter lies a profound philosophy: the process over the product. Ximena and Daniel believe that true learning transcends mere outcomes; it's about the exploration and the journey of discovery. In their world, mistakes are celebrated as opportunities for growth, and imagination knows no bounds.


As dedicated and passionate educators, Ximena and Daniel strive to provide quality education, ensuring that every child has the opportunity to unlock their full potential. Through CreatewithXnD, they are not just teaching children how to paint or play; they are nurturing young minds, while developing social and emotional skills. 


They believe that the first seven years of a child’s life are the most critical and foundational. The pair create a positive learning environment by using the Reggio Emilia approach and the Montessori philosophy to fully develop their students’ talents. In addition, Ximena and Daniel understand the importance of a bilingual education for the developmental achievements of children.


Research has demonstrated that exposing children to a second language will benefit them in various ways, including but not limited to: boosting brain power, improving memory, strengthening the ability to multitask, sharpening the mind, and enhancing decision-making. Ximena and Daniel aspire to give to the community social and cultural awareness through Create with XnD. By creating a safe space for bilingual education, they will effectively enhance a child’s ability to learn and grow into a talented and culturally aware citizen of the world!.


“Ximena and Daniel went above and beyond in bringing fun and engaging projects for my two daughters this summer. Each day was different and the girls loved the variety. Thank you to Create for bringing so much fun to our summer!”
