What is the week like?

Each morning, students explore the week's theme through:

  • Instrument explorations

  • Stretching and dancing

  • Art and craft projects

  • Dramatic play activities


Daily, students learn new things and build these skills for our Friday Parade & Show 'n' Tell at 11:30 for family and friends.

During last summer's "Little Mermaid's Splash", students learned about tropical fish and sea creatures, crafted mermaid tails, explored instruments, played fishing games, and decorated special treasure boxes for the week's artwork. Their Parade & Show 'n' Tell included playing the guitar, singing a song and performing a dance they made up themselves!
