Below is a list of the programs and their descriptions. These classes are held every Monday, Tuesday and Thursday. The Music and Performing Arts, Early Learning Phonemic Awareness, Test Drive America, and DIY Extreme Science, are for ages 2 and up and all the other classes are for ages 6 and up. However, we aren't restricting it to those age groups. These are just suggestions. Each child is different and develops at their own pace. We trust that the parents will know best where their child will fit in and flourish.
