Half Day for Half Pints: Creative Kids Program

September 15, 2014 - May 20, 2015. Monday & Friday Mornings: 9:15am-12:00pm. Tuesday & Wednesday Afternoons: 11:45am-2:30pm. Half day creative arts immersion program designed specifically for the Pre-K child to explore the arts while developing cognitive, social, creative, and motor skills through drawing, painting, music and creative movement. This multi-disciplinary arts curriculum provides an enriching educational experience as a stand-alone half day morning or afternoon program, or as a companion program to augment and extend a pre-school day. Children will experience the arts as they move through The RAC’s Performing Arts Room, Gallery, Children’s Art Studio and Dance Studio. As an added bonus, RAC staff will walk Pre-K students to and from participating pre-schools as a way for your child to have a full day without you having to pick-up or drop-off between the nursery school and RAC program. To register or for more information call (914) 967-0700. Offered by semester. Fees vary.
