Supplemental Programs

Supplemental Programs

o Spanish: All children are introduced to Spanish weekly, and learn through active participation in Spanish instructions that are designed to teach language comprehension through seeing, hearing, and doing. The next step to speaking comes naturally, as enough repetition of meaningful action is presented.

  

o Orff-Music: (recorder, Orff instruments and movement): We provide a rich experience in Orff-Music through participation in music making. Orff-Music involves the children in musical speech and singing, and movement and instrument playing; all of this done in an environment conducive to creativity. The approach naturally fosters a balance between intellectual and emotional stimulation, adding to the wholeness of our young students. And in a general sense, it’s an exciting program that introduces children into the world of music, inspiring many to develop their musical abilities and pursue a life-long appreciation of music.

        

o Piano or Violin: We offer complimentary piano and violin lessons to full-day children. Children learn basic skills on the instrument, sight-reading, and basic graded music pieces.

 o Special Activities for Full-Day Children: Full-day children participate in special activities and projects each afternoon. They range from cooking, art, and science projects to sports, music, and games.
