This is a full year course.

Description: Come to learn and play with us! In Play and Learn we explore letters, numbers, history, geography, physical science, life science, and the animal kingdom. Each class uses stories, songs, large muscle movement, crafts, and guided activities to support our theme. Play and Learn runs in a three year cycle, so children who return always have something new to discover. We will explore science and social studies lessons in the 2018/2019 school year, from clouds, habitats, plants, recycling, and senses, to making our own maps of the world and exploring each continent.
A list of topics is sent at the beginning of each semester, so parents can further explore our subjects at home.  This is the Montessori based, educational experience you’ve been looking for! Play and Learn is a two-hour long block class.
