NEW THIS YEAR!
Spend the afternoon building and creating with our very own Nick!
Creating with LEGO is a chance for young children to foster early math, science and language skills. Nick and Rainbow Room teacher Molly will lead this after school class that will help children foster a love of discovery and investigation while developing social and emotional skills.
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.
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.
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.
Is your child ready to get started learning Spanish, or to improve his or her existing skill sets? Using games, songs, stories and activities, children will learn Spanish vocabulary and conversation in an age appropriate and fun way.
New this year! Is your child ready to get started learning Hebrew, or to improve his or her existing skill sets? Using games, songs, stories and activities, children will learn Hebrew vocabulary and conversation in an age appropriate and fun way.

Children will develop critical social skills including effective turn-taking, flexibility, reading social cues and conflict resolution. This small group provides support for creative play and teaches children to navigate social situations in a structured, fun and warm environment.
Every week children devise their own unique concepts and designs and the play is a wonderful balance between fantasy and concrete problem solving.
