We love creating activities for our students that actively use the left AND right side of the brain: the logical, scientific and mathematical side of things + CREATIVITY and the ARTS! It's our favorite way to learn. Not to mention all the fine motor growth happening when we paint with tiny tools, trace, peel stickers or write with chalk. 🧠

We've spent a lot of time discovering ways to make learning fun and meaningful. Have you considered joining us? There are still spots left in our morning preschool program!
