During the morning program, children have the opportunity to meet with a different specialist almost every day.

Art

Elise Aney guides children as they explore colors, shapes, and composition in our ART Studio. She provides them with different media as they explore ideas, emotions, imagination and learn to work with others on group projects.

Music

Bret Ellerton combines movement with sound exploration as a means to teaching the children the basics of rhythm, pitch, tempo, volume, and song writing. Children not only create their own songs and recordings, but also explore various instruments from around the world and make their own.

Creative Movement

Eric Johnson's lessons are a mixture of learning dance and choreography techniques, learning the fundamentals of movement for movement efficiency, studying functional anatomy (how our bones, muscles, and alignment work), and, most especially important, learning the skills of creativity (developing and trying ideas, choosing the best and creating with them) and the real-life skills of working with partners and teams.

American Sign Language

Nicki Mason teaches the children basic ASL signs and phrases through games and stories. Learning ASL is fun, taps into the natural kinesthesia of young children and strengthens cognitive skills. It is also a great way to gain cultural awareness and acceptance of diversity.

In addition to our specialists, the classroom teachers offer weekly cooking/baking experiences. We also have a garden for planting and harvesting our own food.
