Enrichment

Our school's thoughtful approach and robust curriculum is enhanced by regularly occurring enrichment programs. Our students enjoy a variety of special interest classes, which are led by professional teaching specialists, our own talented teachers, as well as parent volunteers.

Music

Our music program is led by Dani Levy, who graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Music from State University of New York at New Paltz and is pursuing an Early Childhood Education degree at College of Marin. Miss Dani has the children singing, moving and dancing, playing different percussion instruments, improvising, rhyming, and even writing new verses to songs. She sneaks in concepts such as music notation, rhythms and patterns, tempo and keeping steady beats, and concepts like loud and quiet, fast and slow, and high and low.

Movement

Our students stretch and move with Miss Holly, who is not only one of our beloved teachers but also a children's yoga instructor in Marin County. Holly's yoga classes focus on meditation, storytelling, games, music and fundamental yoga while enhancing mental, physical, and emotional health.

Gardening

Each spring, we look forward to planting in our wooden planter boxes and enjoying the fruits of our labor, bringing the process full circle by cooking and eating what we have grown. Our gardening program is led by Miss Kerstin, who holds a Master Gardening certificate.
