Music 

Music together inschool provider preschoolWe are proud to be the only in-school provider of the Music Together program in Lee County!  Our music teacher, Ms. Katie Webber, is well loved by

both our students and her studio families from her weekend classes.  She also happens to be our Infant Environment Morning Assistant Teacher.  All age groups, Infant through Primary, participate in 30 minute Music Together class once per week on Wednesday mornings.

Music Together is the leading music curriculum for early-learning settings serving children ages birth through seven and is offered at thousands of locations around the world.  Children enjoy a playful learning environment that’s musically rich and immediately accessible to their—and their teacher’s—participation.

While not an enrichment class, our non-napping primary students (~4-6 years old) occasionally participate in gardening and pick fruit from our small fruit tree orchard.

Library

Books
Infant, toddler, and primary students are brought to our school library in small groups by a librarian (a parent volunteer) where each child chooses their own book to check out and take home.  Most of our younger students only check out books once per week on Wednesdays but the Primary students are welcome to hang out in the library and check out books whenever they would like.

 Art
Art

While art supplies are always available in our classrooms, both toddler and primary age groups take part in large, messy, age-appropriate art projects at Family Art Friday which takes place on the second Friday of the month.  Parents are encouraged to participate in this event where our teachers infuse fine art education and the monthly themes into fun projects for students and their families to do together.
