Extra Curricular

We believe that children learn in all realms of development. In addition to our Thinking Based Curriculum, we offer students a wide variety of extracurricular activities to choose from. One or two classes a week of activities help children build confidence and maturity and allow them to further explore their interests in a particular area.

One extracurricular activity a week is included in tuition. Because many parents like the convenience of having extracurricular activities during the school day, additional extracurricular activities are available and are paid separately from tuition.

Children will spend their time daily learning basic skills, social skills, self-expression and fine and gross motor skills. All of this will be integrated at a pace and level that corresponds with each child’s capacity and maturity. The Toddlers’ and Twos’ classes participate in a Creative Movements class where physical development is supported through moving the body in new ways.

The Three Year Old Classes and above can choose from the extracurricular activities listed below:

  • Tennis – Teaches the basic skills of tennis and enhances eye-hand coordination.
  • Ballet –Offers the elements of Ballet, Jazz and Hip Hop techniques. Explores freedom of expression through dance and helps build coordination.
  • Music Initiation – Promotes discipline, concentration, determination and creativity.
  • Violin – Helps to optimize brain development, triggering connections in the brain when solving basic math and science problems.
  • Gymnastics – Promotes physical strength, flexibility, agility, coordination and balance.
  • Karate – Develops self-control, concentration and focus. Teaches respect for self and others by focusing on problem solving and decision-making abilities.

    Me pareció una forma muy significativa de documentar la experiencia que permite ver la manera como los niños hacen visible su pensamiento, les da la oportunidad de expresarse a través de arte. Asi mismo me parece muy interesante involucrar a toda la comunidad en este tipo de experiencias. La organización del evento me pareció excelente. Gracias
