For those families that wish to further enrich their preschoolers before or after their regular class session, Creative Tots Mason Preschool offers more focused and specialized programs (for an additional fee) including Art, Science, Spanish, Music, Soccer and Dance.
Art education is essential to the early development of your child as a "whole learner". No matter the skill level, art encourages creativity, increases fine motor skill functions and problem-solving skills and manifests self-expression. Our art enrichment program combines the fun exploration of new media and expressiveness with the diversity and culture of Art History and techniques. Come join us on a weekly adventure through the world of art as we explore the Creative side of our Creative Tots at Creative Tots Mason Preschool!
Our little scientists will meet once a week to investigate, explore and hypothesize through hands-on, minds-on experiments and activities. A few things we will explore include electricity, germs, anatomy and physiology, chemical reactions, physics and much more. Keep a lot out for the fun things you can do with your lab specialists at home too!
Your child will absorb all the benefits that this program has to offer! Our Spanish program features fluent Spanish teachers emphasizing proper annunciations withing thematic vocabulary, phrases and activities. Rich in Latin energy and culture, the curriculum focuses on short conversation and movement while expanding upon the school's basic introduction. This program is offered one to two days per week and it is recommended that students enroll for both days to capture the essence of the curriculum and fluency.
Our music program uses simple musical instruments to explain diverse musical styles, understand and utilize rhythm, dynamics, sequencing, movement, tempo, melody and vocal awareness in a positive, focused, creatively charged atmosphere.
Our partnership with "Challenger Sports" allows Creative Tots Mason Preschoolers to join in in the Minikickers Program. As part of the year-round Academy Division's commitment and dedication to develop both the player and child, the Minikickers program is a positive introduction to the game of soccer and structured athletic activity developing not only the soccer player but also the physical, social and emotional needs for a child aged between 2 and 5 years old. MiniKickers' experts have composed a curriculum which will entertain your child in a fun, safe environment while teaching them the basic fundamentals of the game. MiniKickers will run in 7-week rotations.
Our partnership with "Webby Dance" allows Creative Tots Mason Preschool to offers a weekly fun and educational dance class here at School. Webby's instructors will introduce your child to pre-ballet, creative movement/rhythm and tumbling skills using age-appropriate music and fun props (i.e maracas, tambourines, pon-pons, leis and much more). Class begins with a fun and creative warm-up. We then introduce routines where the children sing and dance while using their favorite props. The children learn basic dance technique and creative movement across the floor. Tumbling skills are taught with fun obstacle courses. With over 300 dances in our curriculum, students are regularly introduced to exciting new routines. Your child will expand on their imagination and creativity during the weekly action packed class!
