Short Stuff creates a balance between academic instruction and play, encouraging academic success while fostering an environment where kids can be kids. Our school years begin in September, and the curriculums have been
enhanced with creative arts, science, literature and reading readiness.
Allowing children to experiment with colors and textures helps them to
develop a sense of self and reinforces the importance of imagination and
creativity. Science activities that explore the way things work will
allow children to make sense of the world around them and help to
develop their grasp of common knowledge and problem-solving skills.
Presenting opportunities without pressure makes a significant
difference in a child's confidence level and opens the door to
discovering where that child's true interests lie. Short Stuff teachers
are dedicated to guiding their students along that path of discovery.
Free play is a supervised free-time period conducted outdoors or
indoors during inclement weather. During this unstructured segment of
the day, situations will be presented to encourage development of large
muscle coordination, strength and balance, and social play.
