Art

Artistic activities can be a vehicle to help children to learn other subjects such as reading and math. Art also promotes visual, motor and social development. Using art as an avenue for expression is enriching because children can use it as a communication tool.

Music & Movement

When children participate in music and movement activities in a group, they also develop and refine their social and gross motor skills. They learn to work as a team, they learn to share and they learn how to be creative in a group environment.

Science & Social Studies

Science helps children develop key life skills, including an ability to communicate, remain organized and focused, and even form their own opinions based on observation. Science encourages exploration that leads to critical thinking skills and the appreciation of the connectivity of all things.

Social Studies enhances the cultural awareness of children and empowers them to have healthy interactions with others.

Language

Language is the universal construct that we utilize to relate to others around us. Language acquisition and development begins well before birth, with the recognition of our "mother's voice" and it continues to develop throughout the course of our lives. Activities that build language will be included in every discipline.

Nature

Outdoor play enables children to enjoy the natural environment and learn to seek out exercise, fresh air, and activity. There is something fundamentally healthy about using the outdoors. Outdoor play provides a natural source of Vitamin D, and develops disposition for the outdoors, for physical activity, for care of the environment and the connectivity of all things.
