Preschoolers love the art process! There are a few who don't want to get their hands messy ... and that's okay, too. We do explore, however a variety of mediums and techniques when we are creating. Art Education is an important element in any child's development. It encourages independent thinking; kids take responsibility for their projects and the materials; and it aids in building self-esteem as they finish pieces in which they are proud.
Exposure to musical experiences is fundamental to a preschooler's education. The concepts of rhythm, melody and dance help develop the young mind and body. Memory is enhanced as we learn new songs.
The benefits to learning a second language in preschool are numerous. Not only does a foreign language provide cultural enrichment but it also has a positive impact on a child's present and future academic life. Acquiring a second language is linked to increased performance in areas of verbal communication, mathematical development and reasoning. While we don't expect children to "master" a second language during their time with us, perhaps it will encourage discussion at home as well as send children off with a love of learning and the skills to do just that.
