MUSIC TOGETHER IN MANDARIN | AGES 0-3

Tuesday & Friday options at our sister school, Battery Park Montessori. Click here for details.


CERAMICS | AGES 3-4 & K-5th GRADE

The integration of art in a child's development can advance creativity and imagination while refining important motor skills. Clay is an enthralling and tactile medium for children to express their artistic creativity. Students will learn basic skills in hand building pottery. We will introduce a new project or idea each class, presenting different clay techniques the children can use as a starting point to create a piece of art that is all their own.

Monday | 3:30-4:15pm or 4:15-5:00pm


YOGA | AGES 3-4 & K-5th GRADE

Wednesday | 3:30-4:15pm or 4:15-5:00pm


CHESS | AGES 3-4 & K-5th GRADE

The Chess At Three approach teaches much more than the rudimentary rules of chess. Chess At Three students also learn: The Importance of Sportsmanship, Literacy, Chess History, and Math, just to name a few. Lessons include interactive moments, physical movements (chessercizes), and guidelines for game play at each level of development. Chess at Three utilizes a unique cast of characters, in fun and interactive stories. Through these stories children progressively learn to play and develop a love for chess. Our stories focus on why chess pieces move in their own unique ways and are supported by activities that cement chess knowledge in your child's mind.

Friday | 3:30-4:15pm or 4:15-5:00pm
