Children will learn through multi-sensory methods and explore painting, drawing/bookmaking, printing, clay/play dough, and paper. Activities will help children build fine motor skills, foster creativity, enhance mathematical skills (colors, shapes, patterns), and literacy through creative writing.
Children will gain conflict resolution skills, emotional intelligence, and confidence through role play, puppets, movement, and songs. In addition, our weekly yoga and relaxation techniques help children learn how to manage emotions.
