Mad about Science
Twice a month, our Threes and Fours have a section on Earth Science with Frank Cronson. The children have a hands on opportunity to explore and experiment with properties and substances that amaze and impress.
Yogi with Carly
Once a month, Carly engages our 3's & 4's classes in a Yoga practice.
Carly is a passionate, child yoga certified instructor who brings her warm, encouraging style to the Co-op. She guides children through various poses, helping them stretch and focus on their breath.
Music and Movement
Stacie Lewis from Harmonize Kidz visits all our classrooms twice a month.
She combines instruments, movement and dance to reflect different cultures and periods of music. Children also begin to differentiate tempos and rhythms.
Every month an animal educator visits
Co-op with a variety of animals for all the children to see and touch.
Interesting information about the animals is shared in a context that is
meaningful to young children.
Occupational Therapist Specialist
The Co-op works closely with Ellen Martino, OTD, OTR/L in advising the teachers as well as working directly with the Threes and Fours in creative and fun activities each month. Through group play and exploration in the classroom, these activities incorporate core strength and stability, fine motor skills, prewriting skills and sensory motor integration. Ellen is available to consult with parents also.
Whether on warm sunny days or wintery sunny days, if the weather allows us to we exlore our surroundings outdoors. Children hunt for treasures, like rocks, leaves, acorns and sticks. Together we
use our imaginations to make them
come to life.
The Co-op employs a School Nurse who is on hand one day a week until January and then on hand one day a month.
The Co-op also maintains relationships with professional specialists in Speech, Child and Family Therapy and Family Services. The school consults with these professionals and makes referrals to families when asked.
