Tuesday

Drama Rama

Drama students are encouraged to express themselves through creative movement and music, costume dress up, storytelling, and puppetry. Children interact in a group and gain self-confidence through playing games and encouraging each other. Drama increases awareness of self and others and expands our imaginations while having fun!

Super Sports

It’s the wide world of sports! Perfect for active 2 to 5 years of age, children learn about and play multiple sports throughout the school year. We want children to experience how much fun playing sports and staying fit can be. Each week’s activities are new as we throw, catch, run, jump, use our imaginations, exercise, and learn to love the games. Some of the sports we will coach include: football, basketball, volleyball, lacrosse, tennis, track & field, cheer and more.

Wednesday

SEA Kids (Science, Engineering, and Art)

Join in the weekly adventure as SEA Kids bring simple stories to life! We will explore these stories by making cool projects and engage in hands-on learning. The activities are planned to inspire natural inquiry and enhance a foundation in science, engineering and art. Children who tinker and create will build a brighter tomorrow!

Wee Little Arts

Wee Little Arts is a visual arts curriculum for young children. Students are exposed to the building blocks of art education. Art history and children’s literature will play a major role in introducing the simple, yet necessary, elements of line, shape, color and texture. Students are encouraged to focus on observation of their environment as they begin to utilize drawing to create works of art. Fundamental elements of design are introduced and applied. A variety of media will be introduced to inspire experimentation. Examining traditional masterpieces as well as the work of contemporary artists, students will continually be exposed to other artists’ work. Vocabulary, use of materials, discussion, imagination, and creation are only some of the wonderful components for our preschool artists.

Thursday

Kids in the Kitchen

Kids in the Kitchen is a hands-on learning experience! Without even realizing, children are exposed to math, science, and reading as they measure, mix, and prepare recipes. The children enjoy getting messy and sticky with their creative culinary concoctions.

Little Yoga Sprouts

Alice Cinnante, owner, loves teaching pre-school yoga. “It’s a wonderful age to begin. They learn healthy habits to last a lifetime.” You’ll hear children’s laughter and conversation in class, while learning the three B’s of yoga: Brain (mindfulness), Body (poses for strength/flexibility/balance), and Breath (techniques to relax/ energize). Additionally, you’ll see peaceful children resting on their mats, full of self-esteem and control at the end of class. Music, storytelling, acting, creative movement, partner poses, games, and more, are all part of the joyful experience.

Que Pasa - Spanish for Kids

Spanish is all about F-U-N and your child can show off some fabulous language skills! There will be singing, dancing, and game playing while learning Spanish along the way. Children will learn the days of the week, numbers, colors, animals, and seasons. Let’s get this fiesta started!
