Nov. 8

Calling all young astronauts: Join our Early Childhood faculty as we explore outer space. From touching the red sands of Mars to learning more about the planets in our solar system, children will delight as they learn more about Earth and its neighbors. So grab your space suit and get ready to blast off into fun!

Jan. 17
Winter Fun

Join our Early Childhood faculty as we “slip” into the winter season. Together, we’ll learn songs about snowflakes and snowmen and play a number of weather-inspired games. Students will leave with their very own lap book to read at home and welcome the winter season.

March 6

This class is an extravaganza of numbers and letters! In this course, our Early Childhood faculty will explore numbers and letters through play, read alouds, and songs. Children may also explore a variety of activity centers designed to stimulate their imagination and curiosity, all while building their literacy and math skills.

May 1
Creepy Crawlies

Join our Early Childhood faculty as we explore the fascinating life of bugs through books, songs, and activities. Your brave, young adventurer will use hand lenses to explore bugs encapsulated in resin, use tweezers to sort colorful bugs, and rummage through soil to discover what might be hiding in a garden. From butterflies, ants, and bees, we’ll explore insects and build our math, science, and literature skills in the process!

Enrollment is limited, so register for these sessions early.
