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. This class also has the added bonus of incorporating sign language to further develop the child's communication skills. For ages 1-5y.
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.
Preschool Cooking -
Students learn about math, science, following directions, and healthy eating all while having fun making something delicious to eat!
For ages 2-6
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.
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.
Creative Reading - Get your young reader hooked on books with this innovative approach to reading. In the class, which is taught by a Fairfax County Special Education Teacher, Kathy Selz, students will explore a different book every week while tapping into their natural creativity. Books will come to life with a related crafts or activity, including, creating their own ending to the story. They will develop imagination and understanding the parts of the story. For ages 4-6.
