Storybook Theater

Ages 3.5-5 years

NEW THIS YEAR!

Introduce your child to drama and movement in our new Storybook Theater class.  During each class, children will explore process drama to help them to step into their favorite storybooks and bring them to life!  In addition to incorporating imaginative play and deeply exploring stories, students will also take part in exciting theater exercises and movement games.

Led by Amalia Ritter (JCP’s Yellow Room teacher), this class will create a safe space for children to explore and have fun with their own storytelling through play, to spark their imaginations, and build confidence with creation and acting.

Let's Explore Science

Ages 3-5 years

Using games, stories, and hands-on classroom science demonstrations, children will learn the basics of scientific exploration. Each week, children take on the role of a scientist and explore different properties of chemistry, physics, and biology.

Past experiments have included constructing a mini volcano; exploring basic mechanics using ramps, wedges, tubes and blocks; and dissecting a flower with tweezers and observing their findings under a magnifying glass. Children will be encouraged to ask questions and explore the world around them.
