PERFORMING & VISUAL ARTS PROGRAMS

Our educational lunch-time programs have been revamped and improved! We are offering an exceptional array of programs during the lunch hour at an affordable cost! What is unique about our performing arts, visual arts and sports programs is that we feature not only skill development, but also a strong educational themes integration for a holistic approach. We know that the early years are crucial for brain development and investment in good education yields immeasurable results. With the exception of Family Music and Literacy Village,  programs run from 11:30 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. thus extending your child's day at preschool. For morning students, your child can stay an additional hour after their preschool session to enjoy sports, dancercise, art, drama or stem-based classes (and in the winter piano class). For afternoon classes, children can be dropped off an hour earlier to enjoy the various programs and then transition directly into preschool afterwards. We do provide children a snack at preschool, however we recommend sending a snack along for the lunch-hour if this is necessary for your child. The list of program offerings are below. Kindly be reminded that classes for programs are limited to 6-12 students only. Please register early to avoid disappointment.
