Why Art?  Why Not?!

Kids Love to Create!

We will engage your child’s creativity from the beginning using fun, hands-on activities designed to teach early phonological awareness, the alphabetic principle, and letter-sound knowledge.  Using multiple forms of art, they will practice sounds and the letters that spell them. 

Skills like rhyming and alliteration form the foundation of reading and spelling.  Starting off on the strongest foot now can ward off problems down the road.  A perfect activity for a preschool-aged sibling of a child with dyslexia.

Welcome to the Jungle!

Inspired by our work with children with apraxia, our playroom is dedicated to the South American Jungle… complete with sloths, turtles, monkeys, cheetahs (they live in Africa, but our clients understand the reference), and birds.  As the animals get faster, so do our clients!  

After wrapping up our art activity, the children will join us in the playroom for storytime and play while you relax in the parent lounge.  With trees, tents, and campfires all around, all they’ll need is their imagination.
