Elements Compass ArtsElements: An Art & Music Playschool
A 10 month school-year length program for children 3-5 years old
Mondays and/or Fridays, 9am-12pm, Fall 2022-Spring 2023
Taught by Romina Robinson, and Jessie Shaffer

This fall, we are so excited to expand our beloved class that combines music, art, science, and sensory play, transforming the 90 minute format into a full 3 hour morning "playschool." Using a thematic approach, students will be guided in magical explorations of music and art through stories, music, movement, art-making, and natural materials. STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) concepts will be interwoven throughout the arts experiences, giving children a multifaceted understanding of the world around them that is developmentally on target for their age. Our days will begin with open play in our music and movement studio, followed by a break for snack, art and music explorations, and finally ending with outdoor play in our shaded backyard.

This program is available for attendance on Mondays only, Fridays only, or both Mondays AND Fridays.

The complete pricing breakdown is as follows:
- Mondays AND Fridays: $2,465 plus $25 registration fee for the school year ($271.50 deposit + 9 payments of $246.50 each)
- Mondays only: $1,200 plus $25 registration fee for the school year ($145.00 deposit + 9 payments of $120.00 each)
- Fridays only: $1,385 plus $25 registration fee for the school year ($163.50 deposit + 9 payments of $138.50 each)

Upon submission of the registration with payment of a non-refundable deposit of 1/10th of the total yearly tuition plus the $25 registration fee, you are reserving a place for your child at Elements Playschool with the intention to participate for the full 2022-2023 school year.
