Morning Specials and Enrichment Afternoons 

Morning Specials:

  •  

    Music:

    Our music teacher and her guitar visit our 2s, 3s and 4s every week. Children are exposed to new songs, instruments, movement games and activities.

         
     

    Yoga:

    Every other week, our children stretch, twist, and bend in a yoga class. Practicing yoga helps with concentration, confidence and self-control. Namaste!

     

    Nature:

    Every other week, our nature expert teaches our children about the environment, plants and animals. The children also explore the world around them through nature walks.

         
     

    Tumbling:

    Balance, somersaults and strength are all part of the fun in our tumbling class, taught every other week.

    Enrichment Afternoons:

    Each afternoon starts with the children enjoying a dairy lunch brought from home.

    Our Enrichment Afternoon begins at 12:00 and ends at 2:30 PM.

    Monday- Science: Through hands-on activities children will explore science concepts. They will predict, experiment, observe and investigate to draw their conclusions. Topics for exploration will be inspired by the environment in which we live. This may include weather, moving objects, structures and plant & animal life cycles.

    Tuesday- Math: Using a variety of math manipulatives and learning materials children will explore concepts of numeracy and foundations of mathematical learning. Games and activities will be designed to encourage and enhance children’s natural interest and curiosity in mathematics.

    Wednesday- Literature: Books and stories let a child’s imagination soar. Each week highlights a new book and brings it to life through crafts, music, dance, drama and games. Children will be exposed to a variety of different genres of literature including non-fiction, fiction and picture books. They will be guided and encouraged to make connections between their own lives and the stories they read in the classroom. Author studies, creating class books and book sharing days will also be included in our literature afternoons.

    Thursday-Art Exploration: Every child’s individual creativity is nurtured as they learn about art by experimenting with different art forms including drawing, painting, collage and sculpture. We will use a myriad of art media - charcoal, clay, oil pastels, wood and more! Emphasis throughout the class will be on the process of exploring the material and not the product.

    Friday-Kabbalat Shabbat: The children get ready to welcome in the weekend. Each week your child will knead, roll, braid and bring home a freshly baked challah. (Warning – due to the delicious aroma filling the halls at the end of class you may not be able to resist eating it right away!)
