“Science Exploration and Sensory Play”

Pre-kindergarten students will learn to use various play-based sensory manipulatives on a light table. This will help strengthen a child’s brain development and build neurological pathways.

“Certified Emergency Response Team”

Students will use the certified emergency kits for training purposes and drills. Once certified, they can be qualified to help in actual emergency responses.
