Owner & Founder of Fable Kids Creative Studio
I started FABLE to share my love of storytelling, wonder and creativeness to children in the community.
My family & I have a deep love for nature and it's magical, direct impact on the development of children. Nature-based learning the cornerstone of everything I create at FABLE KIDS CREATIVE STUDIO!
Giving kids a chance to be creative, expand their imagination, and most of all, to WONDER, to be in a state of wonderment is paramount for children's development.
I'm a self-taught art/creative, still-life photographer, and an entrepreneur. I'm also certified by IIN (Institute for Integrative Nutrition in NYC) feeding my appreciation for baking & cooking, utilizing local, healthy foods.
I'm happy to have a place to share the wonders of the world with others!
Tiffany, mom of two kiddos (ages 5 and 2), has a Bachelor's degree in Music Education and a Master's degree in Music Performance. She can play the violin, piano, and even strum a little guitar. But what really lights up her world is seeing those little eyes sparkle with joy when they sing and make music together. She's all about creating magical musical moments for kids!
Hello, my name is Hallie Lobaugh, and I am passionate about providing caregivers with young children a supportive community. I have extensive experience working with children ranging from infants to elementary students, and I hold Montessori diplomas for both Infant/Toddler (ages 0-3) and Lower Elementary (ages 6-9) programs. When I had my twins, I decided to pursue the Infant/Toddler program in order to create a Montessori environment in my own home. However, at the time, I lacked the opportunity to learn from others that were trying to implement Montessori philosophies in their homes, although I did have a playgroup that played a vital role in shaping my parenting journey.
Stacey is an artist, school teacher and mom. She relocated to Rochester from Australia in 2023. She has a passion for helping others all ages find their creative outlet and teaches a whole range of mediums to kids and adults.

Hi! I'm Jen Kierecki, a certified yoga teacher. I’ve been practicing yoga since 2013 and I knew from the start that it was something I wanted to share with others. I recently finished my certification to be able to teach with the intention of showing children (and adults!) the benefits of movement and mindfulness.
I hope to be able to incorporate storytelling as well as my appreciation for nature and the outdoors into our yoga sessions. In my spare time I enjoy reading, going for walks around the neighborhood, frequenting local parks and discovering new hiking trails with my husband, our son, and our family pup, Pepper. I'm looking forward to being part of your child's journey into the world of yoga!
I live in Pittsford, NY with my husband Daniel, 3 kids (Bodie, Kalman, Cosette) and cat, Saiorse. As a child of creators and artists, (my mother is a painter amongst many other things, and growing up my father designed and made furniture, is also an entrepreneur and a creative). Through this lifestyle, there were always many, many stories told by my parents to my siblings and I. Now, I have many stories to tell my children! I have always been surrounded by CREATIVENESS. I've dabbled in many entrepreneurial aspirations, one of them being the owner of a beautiful Victorian Bed & Breakfast in Pennsylvania where I cooked up decadent Eggs Benedict for breakfast and then warm cookies and tea in the afternoon.
I didn't started my journey as a child educator until I lived in Phoenix, AZ and worked at a Waldorf School. It unexpectedly opened up my soul! I loved the richness the Waldorf education poured into the children. I loved every second and found my love for educating children. I completed the Center for Waldorf's Education, "FOUNDATIONS PROGRAM FOR TEACHER EDUCATION" to become a lead Waldorf teacher but soon started my own family with the birth of my first son, Bodie. Then along came son #2...Kalman, then our true love for the East coast had us moving to beautiful Pittsford, NY! I became a certified Integrative Nutritional Health Coach through IIN in NYC, started a small consulting business and worked with Headwater Food Hub creating online cooking demo content. All the gorgeous local produce and flowers I was exposed to from this area soon inspired me to pick up my camera again and create still life photography. I began selling my prints on Etsy and some local boutiques.
I soon had a baby girl, Cosette, and started my next journey as a nature-play-based leader through Tinkergarten, leading classes exclusively outside.
Then during the winter of 2022, I found a little building just as the snow began to fall in the quaint little town of Mendon, NY, a town which I came to admire reminding me of my hometown in Pennsylvania where I grew up and it was then I knew, it was time. Time to start sharing all that creativeness, for it to have an actual place to live and breathe. For children to experience this and hopefully at the end of the day.....give them a story to tell.
