Most children spend too much time learning passively about the world around them through technology and two-dimensional screens. For children to learn how to think creatively and understand the written word they must first acquire comprehensive language skills as well as the motivation and self-control required to read. They must also have the opportunity to participate in environments that foster a love of books and stories. Our classes are rich in language and active learning. We read, sing, talk, rhyme, develop new vocabulary words, and test our ability to express ourselves through dramatic play, childhood the way it should be.
We are now registering for one of our most popular classes for Kindergartners. Strengthen your reading skills in time for First Grade!
