PRESCHOOL PLAY MORNINGS for 2-3 YEAR OLDS
This drop-off class is an introduction to the social and classroom environment for your 2 or 3 year old. In this program, classes are structured with breaks for snacks, diapering/toileting, but designed to be child-led and play-based, fostering independence and self-guidance. The program’s focus is on respect and community, while introducing children to a wide variety of materials to explore.
CREATIVE KIDS: ART & MUSIC
Our Art & Music preschool class is for the creative minds! Each day our young artists are invited to several creative stations designed to build and create in a variety of medium and with a host of materials for open-ended as well as theme-based projects. We even extend the artwork to the outdoors as much as possible, finding ways to play with nature in our work, or by bringing our projects outside. We also incorporate music exposure and practice into our daily routine, singing and writing songs together, and orchestrating "performances" in our classroom showcase. And in our dramatic play, we bring in elements of musical theater to explore. Ths is a child-only class for children ages 3+. Classes are ongoing throughout the school year and enrollment is always open if space allows.
LANGUAGE IMMERSION CURRICULUM
Instructors provide a consistent framework for the play-based language immersion lessons that provides a balanced variety of learning opportunities. Children engage in both individual and social play, participate in group activities, assist with cleanup and develop self-care skills. Each day, instructors work to provide a variety of language learning opportunities through songs, movement, games, stories, creative activities, snack and meal times, and much more. Three and four-week thematic units cover age-appropriate and language-rich topics to learn core vocabulary and phrases. At-home papers with each theme’s target language words, songs, and activities are provided to extend the learning outside of the classroom.
STEM-based preschool classes encourage children to have fun while they are observing, hypothesizing, experimenting and reflecting about their world. We offer a variety themes including: Engineering: Things that Fly, Chemistry: Kitchen Science, Secret Agent Science as well as Force & Motion and Electricity & Magnetism. The STEM preschool classes combines our structured science curriculum with our maker space, a place for our young engineers to design and build with the proper adult support. Many of our themes are designed around student’s interests and abilities, allowing for child-led projects and explorations. STEM classes prioritize outdoor play, so much of the curriculum is designed to include nature. We extend our STEM concepts to the outdoors as much as possible, exploring and learning at the nearby Spy Pond Fields.
