Take a Bow! - mondays
You can profoundly change the world with the voice of the theatre. Come ignite your Children’s inner thespian and magnify their imaginations! Young children thrive to play and for a child, play is the vehicle for developing creativity, imagination and oral communication skills. Students will learn tongue twisters, explore clowning, puppetry, movement and dramatic storytelling in this program. All which will lead up to short plays & musicals performed throughout the school year!
CIRQUe de science! - Tuesdays
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. In this class, your child’s natural gift is carefully sculpted through guided exploration with “gravity powered toys”. There’s a big world out there to explore!
Animal arts & Crafts - Wednesdays
Each afternoon, these young learners will learn about a new animal and as a fun culminating activity, create a relevant craft. These projects will include puppets, masks, sculptures, paintings, and collages. Students will deepen their knowledge of the natural world, and by the end of the term have a collection of creature creations!
Some of these creations will be used in our performing arts productions and student museum days!
Let’s Move - Thursdays
We bring a surge of energy to our week with focus 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.
Book Making -Fridays
Who knew such young children could be published artists and authors? Each Friday we will read stories and create our own books inspired by those we study. Students will bring home an original published book to share with their family. Their creations will include accordion books, scrolls, pop-up books, activity books, biographies, and more. They will get introduced to a variety of techniques that help them develop their fine motor skills. With an introduction to book binding, students will grow their appreciation of books and develop a signature library of their own.
