Across all of our classes, we provide a developmentally appropriate program with a combination of structured time and free choice/play time. We emphasize music and the creative arts as well as science activities, story time, block play, sand and water exploration, puzzles, and much more.
Age appropriate activities include a wide range of art experiences, dramatic and imaginary play, playing instruments and singing in large and small groups, creative movement (which includes mime and yoga activities), building with materials like LEGOs, and engaging in one on one focused work with teachers. Through these activities, children practice small and large motor skills and develop reasoning, language, socialization, and decision-making abilities.
Wayland Creative teachers encourage each child to participate and grow within the group, with consideration given for various learning styles and your child’s unique character and interests. Our program improves confidence and self-esteem within a safe environment and promotes close social relationships between the children.
