Taught by Ms. Celia, art is an integral part of every WPA classroom. Art experiences in our classrooms contribute to creative development as well as to a wide range of skills in other areas including perceptual, cognitive, language, and social skills. Children will be exposed to a collection of different artists and techniques throughout the year and will then be able to display their masterpieces during our annual Spring Art Show.
Tuesday: Big Body Movement
Big Body Play helps children develop physically, socially, and emotionally. Physically they learn how to use their growing muscles and limbs while developing an understanding of their physical limits. Socially they gain how to communicate with other children, the importance of being gentle, and how to take turns or share. Emotionally they gain empathy for other people’s feelings and learn to interpret verbal and nonverbal cues.
Soccer Shots is an engaging children’s soccer program with a focus on character development. We positively impact children’s lives on and off the field through our best-in-class coaching, communication and curriculum.
Incorporating music into routines and play in the early years has a positive influence on your child’s early development. It can get them moving, thinking and inspire creativity. Listening to and creating music helps children learn numeracy, literacy and emotional skills.
Spanish is one of the most spoken languages in the world and can be found all around you. Knowing Spanish offers more opportunities in several fields. The best time to learn a second language is childhood as the earlier someone is exposed to a language, the easier it is for them to pick it up and retain it. Learning Spanish boosts a child's problem-solving, critical-thinking, and listening skills. Mrs. Karla uses her Hispanic background to teach the fundamentals of Spanish through music and movement.
