Mundo de Colores Pod (1-3 years)
This class is for families who want to participate in the semi-private pod offerings but do not have a group of families to create their own pod with. This class will be closed to the public one week after it begins so that the group is the same students for the season.
Art projects and crafts will help your little one learn simple Spanish phrases and colors. Mundo de Colores promotes development of hand-eye coordination, visual and fine motor skills through sequencing and arranging. This class will also broaden awareness of colors, shapes, shades and textures.

Ocean Explorers (3-5 years)

Play, Paint & Investigate (3-5 years)
The next step to fulfill the investigative and natural schema of childhood.
