FIRST STEPS PRE-SCHOOL ART PROGRAM
Does your child love to draw, paint, cut and glue? Want to help boost your child’s fine motor skills? Then join us for art classes once a week with teachers from the Monart School of Art. This unique program is designed specifically for 3-5 year olds to practice cutting and drawing skills. Monart is a time-tested program that has been offered in Montessori schools across the nation for over 40 years!
Students will be improving visual perception skills, hand-eye coordination, pencil grip and task completion while experiencing new media. Students are guided through a drawing and collage project each week. Students enjoy group time, drawing and collaging the “animal of the day.” This class is offered to accommodate morning students after their classroom time.
LEARNING WITH LEGOS
Does your pre-schooler love Legos and building? Then this is the class for them! Learning With Legos was designed by former WCS pre-school teacher, Kate Pepper. In this language-arts based class children will build the scenes from classical literature, build Lego food and plan menus, design construction vehicles and use tools, build through the alphabet and practice forming words with the Lego letters.
Kate believes learning is always more enjoyable and creative when it is sufficiently challenging. These classes are perfect for both boys and girls that have an interest in literature, science, math, building, invention, machines, or who enjoy working with their hands. Specially designed Lego kits will be provided for use in class.
