Class instructors are often former or soon to be classroom teachers. Undergraduate education majors are available to provide one-on-one attention for any child who may need it.

Our goal is to build a positive learning community for all children. To achieve this goal, it is important that ALL children respect each other’s space, ideas, and materials. Therefore, if a child’s behavior is preventing the class from developing a positive and supportive learning environment we will contact parents/guardians to discuss options about continuing with the session.
