Program

Shake Rattle and Roll (Music Class)

The children will engage in musical play and social interaction as we sing songs, play percussion, and have fun with movement! Activities will allow students to develop fundamental rhythmic skills, improve coordination and spatial awareness, as well as to develop turn-taking and social skills. The classes will consist of organized activities and free-play time to explore instruments.


Petite and Moyenne Sections

Super Soccer Stars

A typical day includes warm-ups and stretching, skill building and skill development activities, scrimmages and small sided games, and the big game where the kids get to play both each other, and then challenge their coaches! It's a great way for your child to develop soccer skills and teamwork while spending time outside!
