Let's MOVE! - mondays
The class is based on the use of props and imagination to encourage young children to learn music and dance concepts. The class includes basic ballet and modern fundamentals with body conditioning, games, improvisation and rhythmic exercises. Children learn better when they are having fun! Creative movement helps children discover the possibility of human bodies through different ways of moving. Students learn discipline and social skills in a positive and safe environment. It inspires their creativity and helps build the self-esteem and confidence.
IMAGINEER THAT! - Tuesdays
These days, everyone is talking tech- from smart watches to smart robots to VR. But did you know that your child’s shoes, their crayons, even their baby diapers are technology too? Engineers are always inventing new technology- tools designed to make life easier. In IMAGINEER THAT, your child will learn the ropes of the engineering design loop, identifying problems, imagining solutions, and creating tools that change challenges (even the pint-sized ones) into possibilities.
Rainbow day - Wednesdays
Little artists will create their own portfolios as they master different artistic techniques inspired by master artists and explore styles throughout art history in paint, pencil, pastel, water color and printmaking. Encouraging storytelling and visual thinking strategy, self-expression will be central to creating every artwork! When weather permits drawing and paintings will be made on local field trips outdoors.
Little scientist- Thursdays
Have you ever watched a baby drop a spoon, hand it back to them, and then watch as they drop it the exact same way again? That clever little scientist just did an experiment to make a discovery about gravity! Every child is a natural-born scientist, carefully watching and wondering about the world. Where do shadows go at night? What makes something alive? In Little Scientist, your child’s natural gift is carefully sculpted through guided experimentation covering topics across biology, physics, and even chemistry. There’s a big world out there to explore!
Super sculptures -Fridays
Creativity and problem solving at its best! In super sculpture day we will explore the concept of creative possibilities, encouraging problem solving and invention! Using puppetry, hands on sculpture projects; using mixed media constructions, recycled materials, clay, wax, felt and plaster to name but a few, little artists will experience a multitude of traditional and non-traditional artistic media. Weather permitting, outdoors and nature will become a subject and material for nature art.
