Artful, imaginative and playful learning experiences for Kindergarteners. 

In German, the word "Kindergarten" directly translates to "children's garden." KinderARTen was created as a place children can learn and grow naturally without unnecessary demands or pressures to succeed.

KinderARTen focuses on providing artful, imaginative and playful learning experiences for this age group. While incorporating literacy, math, social studies, health and science through art, the class more importantly allows students the freedom to explore and investigate topics within a small community of learners. (only maximum of 12 per class)

Our program offers a balanced schedule. There is movement between individual and group activities, some of which are focused and some of which are less directed. A good portion of our day involves artistic and creative play inside the studio, and when possible we go outdoors. This gives children plenty of time to exercise the powers of imagination, as well as develop social, emotional, and motor skills. We incorporate children's literature during daily story times which foster listening skills, vocabulary, reading comprehension, and of course creative thinking and problem solving. Children in our program learn how to express themselves through all different types of art mediums including watercolor, clay, sewing, collage, and so much more. By introducing the works of famous artists, and children's illustrators, children are inspired to create in their own way.

KinderARTen Explorations day is my daughter’s favorite day of the school week! As a parent, I love knowing she’s learning through engaging, hands-on creative projects and great literature.
