Creative Players (T/H)

Creative Players, our beginners drop off class, is perfect for little ones showing an interest in interacting with peers, and seeking out activities such as art, story times, and constructive play with blocks and other manipulatives. This theme based class focuses on first time separations, classroom skills, and positive social interactions. Creative Players class is designed to ease the transition from first time separation to classroom readiness. Your Creative Player will enjoy guided play, circle time, art, music, snack, and lunch while practicing important skills such as sharing, taking turns, and following instructions. This class combines the joys of playing with the joys of learning to nurture your child's academic and social growth.
