We are pleased to be working with the Peck Slip School this year to provide a special program after school that is completely separate from the K-5 program. In this nurturing environment, your child will spend each afternoon exploring multiple stations of active and creative self-guided activities. These activities include dance, music, art, science experiments, sports, games, hands-on construction, and imaginative play. The teachers in this program are Reggio-inspired creative educators from Downtown Atelier. They are experts at curating beautiful, playful, and enticing materials provocations for children to explore while utilizing the power of open-ended play to invite moments of connection, joy, and discovery.
