From classic stories to contemporary chronicles, children's books are colorful and cheerful, and filled with fabulous details. What’s your favorite book? We’ll start our day by hearing two exciting stories, and children can then decide which book they wish to further explore and bring to life through arts and crafts, drama, science experiments, and journaling. Our afternoons will be spent playing creative and active games, and going outdoors for recess fun and trips to the water park. Each week's books and themes will be unique.

Exercise your imagination with the magic of puppetry in stories and on stage! In the mornings we will explore different puppetry styles as we design and build colorful characters.
