Introducing two new classes: Baby Sensory and M&M: Music and Movement
New session of classes begin April 24th. This is the last session of classes until the fall.
Fee is $120 for eight weeks of class per student. (If you join us after the session has started, the fee will be prorated). All students enrolled in a class may take advantage of the playarea before/after class. Caregiver participation is welcome, but optional in all our classes.
We will be continuing our Half Day Camps for the rest of the year, which will also INCLUDE a class. Register for our Preschool Camp here. If you are already signed up for a class, you can easily turn it into a camp by registering here and paying an additional $15.
Introducing the monthly Class Pass where students can take advantage of unlimited classes and visits to the Playzone for a month.
Don't know what kind of class your child would like? Use the Class Pass to try them all out. Do you spend a lot of time at NoVA PlayLabs? The Class Pass is an economical way to use our services.
There are only eight spaces for each class, so students attend on a first come, first served basis.
Fee for the Class Pass is $99 per child for 30 days, which starts on the first day of your visit.
Baby Sensory- Caregivers will learn way to engage the baby's senses: sight, touch, smell and sound. There will also be time to discuss developmental milestones. For ages 3-12m.
M&M: Music & Movement - Music ignites all areas of child development: intellectual, social and emotional, motor, language, and overall literacy. It helps the body and the mind work together. Exposing children to music during early development helps them learn the sounds and meanings of words. For ages 1-5y.
Creation Station - A fun and creative class where the process is more important than the final product. With some guidance from the instructor, participants will work with various materials, both new and recycled, to make unique crafts. Using their own imagination, students will have lots of opportunities to use scissors, paintbrushes, glue, glue sticks and other tools to practice their fine motor skills in a self guided environment. For ages 18m-6y.
Meet the Masters - Students will learn about the style and history of the Great Masters, such as Mondrian, Warhol, Monet, and others, and create their own masterpiece. For ages 2-6y.
Pre-K STEAM- Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math for preschoolers. Students explore concepts like gravity, structures, animals, colors and mixtures with engaging lessons and lots of opportunities for hands-on activities. For ages 2-6y.
Storytime Art - We will begin the class with a reading from a beloved book. We will then review the book with the students and point out significant story points and illustrations. The students will then connect with the story by making an art project inspired by the story. For ages 2-6y.
School Readiness – A class for preschoolers that teaches math and phonics. Using dynamic and hands-on activities, students will learn Math concepts such as one-to-one correspondence, geometry and spatial relations, measurement, and patterns. The Phonics program will help students discover and practice the connections between letters and their sounds. For ages 3-6y.
Zoology - This is not a college-level class:) In this Zoology class, we teach about animals by combining movement with storytelling, immersing them in the experience of learning about animals in a more meaningful way. Their imaginations will be enriched further with a craft so their knowledge of animals can be brought to life in a creative way. For ages 2-6y.
Playdough with Plato - There’s more to playdough than just squishing the dough. We will use playdough to teach about shapes, letters, counting, animals and other everyday objects. If you're looking for a class for mixed age siblings, this is the perfect class for them because the older child can work on the higher level activity (numbers, letters, patterns, etc) while the younger child works on her fine motor skills like rolling, cutting and stamping. For ages 18m-6y.
Mandarin - Miss Joyce, a native Mandarin speaker, is currently a teacher at a local Chinese Language School, will teach students practical, conversational Mandarin through the use of props, role-playing and practice.
