Weekly indoor play has organized and free-play options which include: arts-crafts, books, building, cars, dance, foosball, kitchen, ping-pong, science experiments, table games and individual and group “tutoring” to reinforce your child’s current English language and math skills.

Outdoor play areas are the front field with playgrounds and the back gravel field with sandbox. Weekly active play has organized and free-play options which include using our sport equipment: balls, hula hoops, no-pedal bicycles, plasma cars, rollerblades, scooters, shovels and buckets and skipping ropes,

Field trips will be walks to neighborhood parks. When possible, trips in our bus or on city transit will be announced at the beginning of the week.
