Enrichment Program. Discover a world of unique extracurricular activities!
06 October 2022
Can you imagine that sports, arts, music and crafts are all part of your child’s day in preschool? Welcome to our PM Enrichment Program!
Afternoons at Montessori Hub are always a busy time for the kids attending our full day or PM programs. They participate in extra English and culinary classes, and, of course, engage in our unique studios that run from 4:00 to 5:00 pm. The studios enrich the core curriculum and are open all year-round to provide children with a variety of exciting activities. In 2022 — 2023 these are: English Storytelling, Clay Fairytale, Art&Craft, Capoeira and Musical Theater.
The studios are open to all children, even those who do not attend our preschool. Families can choose the number of days to participate in classes. We are very happy to share the exciting opportunities that are available to our students!
Storytelling is a magical blend of learning, play and creativity. Our classes are held in English and consist of three parts: the introduction of the story by the teacher, a master class and acting out by the students. In the process, the kids communicate a lot in English, get acquainted with new grammar and expand their vocabulary. The stories are accompanied by songs, activities, colorful illustrations and related role plays, making the learning process very fun!
CLAY FAIRYTALE (Tuesday)
Clay fairytale is a new approach to modeling. We work with clay the way we would play with a construction set or in a sandbox. We fantasize freely, communicate, model, learn that everything can be broken, molded anew and made even better. Our class is a space where you can make mistakes, mess around in clay, smear rivers and lakes on the table, sculpt houses or skyscrapers, imagine that you are on another planet or in a magical village. In general, enjoy the moment and create a fairy tale on the table :)
MUSICAL THEATER (Wednesday, Friday)
Musical theater combines several performing arts at once: playing musical instruments, singing and theater. We prepare entire performances, going through all the stages: learning, rehearsals and, in the final, performing on stage. In the process we get acquainted with the history of music and theater, various directions and genres. The students walk the path of the Artist and the path of the Spectator, gain experience in improvisation, learn to listen and hear music and have a lot of fun! In addition, they develop self-confidence, oratory and public speaking skills.
ART&CRAFT (Thursday, 3:50 pm) Art is one of the kids' favorite activities! It is here that through various forms of creativity, children can express their feelings and emotions and get acquainted with the world’s artistic culture. They acquire skills in working with paints, glue, paper, plasticine and various non-standard materials. They also get acquainted with the history of art and unusual creative techniques.
CAPOEIRA (Thursday, 4:30 pm) This beautiful Brazilian art combines dance and acrobatics, music and sports. Being engaged in capoeira, children become stronger, more enduring, more flexible. They develop a reaction and a sense of their own body. In addition to the sports part of capoeira, there is also a musical and social part. All trainings take place to the accompaniment of musical instruments, and children learn to move to the beat and sing along. Music and rhythm are an integral part of this fun group activity :)
