After School Programs

From 3:00-5:00pm, we provide a warm after-school environment supervised by two staff members hosted in one of our classrooms. After-care activities will include trips to an outdoor and movement time on our indoor play space. Children will be guided through art exploration activities including collage, painting, recycled art projects and more. Children will also have access to materials that inspire open-ended exploration including blocks, puzzles and rhythm instruments. The school provides a snack of fresh fruits, vegetables, and rice crackers.

Suzuki Preparatory Class through the Tone Academy of Music

(Open to Toddler students only, must be accompanied by a parent/caregiver)

Tone Academy of Music's primary goal of the Suzuki Preparatory Class is not only to teach young people to play musical instruments. We also recognize the unique contribution music can make in the total learning process. Our goal is to include the development of the whole child, unfolding the natural potential to learn with the support of their parent and caregiver, creating a deep love of music beyond the classroom!

The Suzuki Preparatory course is also the premier introduction to musical concepts for children preparing for private music instruction. Utilizing a balanced parent-child-teacher interaction, these engaging classes introduce rhythm, tone pulse and pitch through interactive movement, rhyme and instruments. They also cultivate concentration, motor skills, socialization and an early comprehension and love of music!

In the Suzuki Method, children thrive in an environment of total support. Suzuki students develop confidence and self-esteem, determination to try difficult things, self-discipline, and concentration. Caregivers/Parents enjoy watching their toddlers develop rhythmic and melodic awareness, memory and social skills. Teachers work with parents to build a repertoire of lullabies, action songs and nursery rhymes. Families are encouraged to use the take-home audio tracks for the entire family to continue practice and skill building.

Children's Yoga with Karma Kids

(Open to Primary students only)

Karma Kids Yoga incorporates playful and creative ways for children to exercise and balance their mind and body through yoga. Children will have an opportunity to explore music and movement, dance, and play. Children's yoga uses animated poses and stretching to promote strength, balance, and coordination. While doing so, they will explore breathing, visualization, and relaxation techniques to help focus, relax, and develop self-control. The class will also encourage teamwork, and the development of self-confidence and motor coordination.

Suzuki Music through Tone Academy of Music

(Open to Primary students only)

Tone Academy, home to one of the premier Suzuki and early childhood education programs in NYC, is helping students begin their musical journey this fall! We'll explore all the basics – rhythm, melody, and harmony – through movement, experimentation, and group gameplay. Tone will provide resources for home practice for the whole family, who are invited to join us for an end of semester performance. Students will have the opportunity to hear and explore music from classical, to jazz, to samba, and more!

STEM Kids with Curated Care

(Open to Primary students only)

STEM combines the wonders of science, technology, engineering, and math with fun, immersive projects that encourages young minds to explore and ask questions. Engineers-in-training will build their own catapults and weight-bearing bridges. They'll explore scientific concepts as they create colorful density towers, dabble in the world of physics while constructing marble runs, and get hands on with chemistry as they make their own slime. It's the perfect way to keep the learning momentum going after school!

Dance Fusion with Curated Care

(Open to Primary students only)

Join us for a celebration of dance from around the world! This class provides a fun introduction to a variety of dance styles, including ballet, hip hop, modern, ballroom, Latin and more. Students will learn the basic technique of each style, build musicality and strength through weekly exercises, and explore their own personal style as they develop their own choreography. Expand your child's dance repertoire in this unique and enriching class!

Drama Class with Make a Scene!

(Open to Primary students only)

Your children's imaginations will take center-stage as they act out beloved stories and characters. We'll explore puppetry, pantomime, and physical and vocal characterizations through dynamic games and guided improvisations. As children learn to "make a scene" they will develop confidence, creative expression, and have tons of fun working as an ensemble with their peers.
