About Us

WHO WE ARE

The Simple Gift Series team is a profound, creative and caring team of  brilliant professionals that have all emerged in one way or another from the unique and nurturing culture of the Colorado Springs Conservatory (CSC).  Tripp and Drew Fountain, Christina and Roan are all alumni of the program- some spending more of their formative years there than others. Tripp, Drew and Christina continue on there as mentors in various capacities.  Ian Gregory is a mentor there as well.  Linette has shared her expertise in the areas of early childhood and youth with special needs taking the Conservatory programs to the next level alongside civic, health and educational partners. Linda Weise founded the CSC in 1994.  The CSC is one of a kind in the nation and world- a place whose Mission is to inspire, motivate and challenge students to aspire to their highest potential through arts immersion studies and community arts advocacy.  Why is that important to know?  Because each of them bought into and lived this Mission and have come together now to truly continue in this vein with utmost commitment, rigor and joy!

WHAT MAKES THIS TEAM SO SPECIAL

 This particular group of creatives coming together at this extraordinary time of COVID 19 is truly magical.  Each lending their expertise, experience and diligence with such passion simply by recognizing a need; a need for exemplary learning experiences.  Recognizing that this is  a time when more families were at home together seeking intentional, meaningful and joyful educational experiences.  Who better to answer this need than this extraordinary group of individuals. They bring music, joy of learning and most importantly- experiential application.

 WHY WE BELIEVE IN SIMPLE GIFT SERIES

 This television series and the elements on this website have been crafted in such a way as to truly inspire and engage- not just the youngest of children, but entire families.  We have been so thoughtful putting these pieces together.  We want both the program and the additional curriculum, songs, activities to be here for you and your family in such a way that We Are Baby Building NOT Baby Sitting.

WE KNOW IMPACT

 The Colorado Springs Conservatory culture, mission, ideology and community have had significant impact on the creation and philosophies of the Simple Gift Series.  One can only look at the track record of the CSC successes and impact to know that by bringing a broader audience along at the very earliest of stages of any child’s life we can guarantee that informing and providing access to this incredibly intentional, fun and engaging program will enlighten your child in ways unimaginable.  

We are honored to share life’s journey with you through the

Vision

Simple Gift Series works to create a world where a child will grow in the most imaginative and fortified of manners.  Engaging with the Simple Gift Series books, music and learning experiences will afford every child to come to know and understand themselves in such a way, that without even knowing it, they will have built a foundation of grace, knowledge and understanding- building a life-long skill set to ensure a positive and productive life journey.

Goal

The Goal of engagement with the Simple Gift Series program is to expose children at the earliest of ages to those very elements that we all hope to keep with us through life; love of learning, love of music, power of connectedness, grace, wisdom and understanding.  To ultimately build a more compassionate, empathetic and knowledgeable world- one child at a time.
