Art Expression: Enhance your child’s self-expression and creativity through multi-medium, hands-on, art exploration. Working with art supports preschoolers’ fine motor development, visual/spatial relationships, sensory development, and planning/processing skills. Children tap into their imaginations as they create wonderful art to share with their families.
Spanish: Expose your child to Spanish language and culture through natural play, stories, songs, movement, and art. Classes will be led in English with directions, songs, and stories delivered in Spanish.
Science: Children will explore earth sciences through indoor and outdoor experiments. The class will ask questions and make predictions stimulating their logical thinking skills using a variety of natural, sensorial materials, hands-on activities, books and songs.
Music: Your child will enjoy a fun- filled week of music exploration. The children will sing, dance, explore rhythmic patterns and work with a variety of instruments, musical styles and cultural traditions.
Reader’s Theater: Your child will experience an exciting week of reading stories and bringing them to life. Each day’s activities will be grounded in the themes, characters and situations the children are encountering. Reading and acting out stories helps your child strengthen his/her pre-reading skills. Acting also helps children develop empathy as they act out what others are feeling.
Conservation Kids: Reduce, reuse, recycle. The children will explore the concept of conservation by creating treasures using everyday items brought from home and items found on scavenger hunts in the neighborhood. The children will find that one person’s trash is truly someone else’s treasure. A pine cone found in the park is actually a bird feeder. An old milk carton is really a boat and dirt and sand are all you need to make a water filter!
