If You Were A Penguin

Join us as we explore the life of penguins. Your child will learn fun facts about the 17 different species of penguins, where they live, and how they behave. Children will learn about these amazing animals through games and activities designed to build pre-writing skills and vocabulary. They will also synthesize what they learned and build their very own model penguin!

Math is Super!

Did you knowthat math is everywhere? Even superheroes use math. Join us as we explore math through a number of superhero-inspired activities. This session will help your child develop skills in problem solving, number sense, directional and spatial awareness, geometry, as well as sequencing and patterns. Children will learn how using math is super, and they will even receive their own superhero mask and cape!

April Showers

April showers bring May flowers. Join our Early Childhood faculty as we explore the water cycle and meteorology!
