Our pre-school room is a wonderful place filled with things to explore discover and create! We have designed a place where each child is able to learn all the necessary skills needed to succeed in kindergarten and to continue to thrive. Our well planned centers allow children to choose activities to have self-directed play and to work in small groups.
The object of the pre-school dance/movement program is to address the issues of gross motor movement and physical education to ensure healthy active growth. The program centers on: dance principles including jazz tap ballet and cultural dances; listening skills; telling stories through movements; auditory clues; tumbling; coordination; balancing and self-control.
