Classes Overview

Our classes are divided into age groups, each group having children with birthdays within a couple of years of each other. While each class will engage in similar activities, our curriculum is structured so that each age group will be provided developmentally appropriate materials at the right time and presented in a lively way. Some of the common activities for all the grades are:

  • painting with watercolor
  • drawing with crayon and pencil
  • singing
  • learning to play recorder or other instrument in the older grades
  • listening to stories and poetry and reciting it
  • creating longer-term sewing, knitting and other handwork projects
  • sculpture made with clay and other materials
  • regular movement activities including old-fashioned playground games and large-group dances
  • the older children practice geometric drawing
  • a performance of a play for the community inspired by their year’s curriculum
