We're an Extension of the School Day
We're not a babysitter. Each week, in addition to the fantastic art and amazing STEAM building projects we create, we also teach students key educational concepts. In art, we challenge your child: learn how to shadow, create horizon lines, and incorporate what they want into the project. Eager Engineers, each week introduces and discusses a new engineering, math, or science concept- like fulcrums, inclined planes, simple machines and more. Then we apply those concepts into the Lego/K'Nex/Citibloc building project. Our goals are simple: to create a positive, stress free environment and discover than learning is fun.
No Electronic Devices
All day, your child is exposed to computers, pads, smart phones & other electronic devices. Consistently, studies show too much time in front of a screen negatively affects memory, language, and development skills in children. Our promise: For one hour, your child will be free of any type of electronic device.
Hands on Learning
All of our classes- Eager Artists, Eager Engineers, Stitches Sewing- use Hands on Learning. This approach is perfect for auditory and tactile learners, because they learn by doing it themselves. We encourage that, because learning how to do something is more important than the finished product.
Mistakes are OK
Who doesn't make a mistake? Our instructors are trained to share their mistakes in the classroom, so when your child makes a mistake, no problem! Just work through it and, usually, the end result turns out even better than expected.
You want to color a pumpkin blue? No problem. Want to add some rain clouds in the sky? No problem. Want to add a suspension bridge to your Lego Taj Mahal? No problem. We want your child to unleash their inner creativity in our classes. We love when every child's project is different than the others.
Create a Love of Learning
Our goal: to help your child learn something new, and have fun doing it.
