Within each of our programs we incorporate both American Sign Language and Spanish instruction. In agreement with current research, we believe opportunities for language instruction should be incorporated within the context of a child’s daily surroundings, conversations and interactions. In response, our staff members build in daily practice opportunities within their regular weekly lesson plans.
Based on our findings that children thrive in a sensory rich environment we offer a weekly music class to all of our students. During each session the children learn core musical concepts as well as novel songs and corresponding movements. They are exposed to a variety of musical genres, terms, and instruments while frequently being offered the opportunity to create and perform.
We also offer a weekly yoga class for children two years and older. Yoga at an early age encourages self-esteem, patience and body awareness and promotes flexibility, strength and coordination.
