BEYOND THE CLASSROOM

  • Music

    Music provides children with joy and is a genuinely social experience that ignites all areas of development. Each week, our music teacher visits with each class to provide a variety of experiences that blend music, movement, rhythm and dance to increase social interaction, language learning and self-expression.

    Gym

    Our program uniquely offers weekly physical education classes in a large, open space. With a full array of gym materials and equipment, our PE teachers provide age-appropriate experiences that build fundamental movement skills that lead to mastery of large and fine motor tasks.

    Nature

    With live animals, artifacts and participatory activities, experts at the New Canan Nature Center come to our school to teach children about animal adaptations, behavior, ecological importance and natural history. Every visit includes three exciting and fascinating animal visitors.
  • Yoga

    In our yoga classes, children learn how to take a pause in their day. Our Yoga instructor playfully teaches breathing and poses, and strives to build a foundational  practice that counters the stress experienced by little ones living in a hurry-up world.

    Drumming

    Our drumming instructor guides Connecting students in weekly drumming sessions. It is a collaborative experience that helps children to develop non-verbal communication, motor skills, attention, impulse control and decision-making skills.

    Handwriting

    Teachers in the 4's and Connecting classes collaborate with an occupational therapist to teach weekly handwriting lessons using Handwriting Without Tears, a multi-sensory and developmentally appropriate curriculum designed for preschoolers.
