Toys I Make Trips I Take- Imagine That (3-5 years)

The result is building the preschooler’s sense of a sequence of events, which is good for storytelling, as well as making his ideas a reality.

See What I Saw- Ages 3-5 years

Each week provides preschoolers one uninterrupted session of imaginative play that’s guided in a very specific, sequential way—with a special sharing time with parents in the last 15 minutes of class

Kindermusik for the Young Child – Semester One (For Children 5-7 years old)

Kids Activity Program
Everything your child learns later in semesters 2, 3, and 4 begins with this early introduction to singing, reading, and writing music and rhythm. Through dances and games that focus on rhythmic development, we”ll learn a pre-keyboard instrument—the glockenspiel—which will be used throughout all the Young Child classes. In this well-rounded approach, children also learn the families of the orchestra, and about the composer Mozart. Your At Home Materials provide the music, instruments, stickers, and activities for a home version of the same playful activities you”ll hear about from class, so your child—and you!—can learn where you’re most comfortable: at home.
