Join us for It’s nearly SPRING Double Play - Migrating Birds! Little ones will make birdhouses, discover Chicago’s migrating birds, explore the songs of songbirds, and much more through imaginative projects in music, art, dance, and creative drama. We even will get to enjoy our budding little garden!
In this drop-off program for the creative learner, children delight in artful adventures. They wonder. They create. Each day includes two unique classes that incorporate theater, dance, music, and/or art, and large group circle times for singing games and storytelling. Kids spend half of their day exploring the magic of Old Town School. Parents have 2 1/2 hours free to enjoy their own lesson, class, or daily routine.
Inspired by the Reggio Emilia Project Approach, Double Play is collaborative, imaginative, and joyful learning. Through the arts, young children develop social, language, physical, and cognitive skills. Double Players make new friends, connect to the spirit of Old Town School, and build a little community of cooperative young artists. Children learn to work together while finding their voice and making their own creative choices!
On the last day of each session, we invite families to come celebrate our brave discoveries!
Curriculum developed by early childhood development specialist, Erin Flynn, Masters in Early Childhood Education
“Our children really take in the experience. They come home and talk about concepts and sing songs. We feel lucky to live close to such a wonderful arts and music school.”-Double Play Parent
