INTEGRATED ARTS PROGRAM
We work in collaboration with pARTners, the Art Association, and JH Children’s Museum to bring the arts to life in our curriculum. Drama, music, visual arts, technology, and dance enhance curriculum in and out of the classroom.
Why is art important? For children, art is more than just enrichment, it is their language….it is essential to their development. Through art young children develop motor skills, problem solving, creativity, self expression, literacy, language, math, science, and social-emotional skills. For example, music and movement provide early math and science skills; drawing and painting enhances early literacy. Through CLC’s arts initiative our teachers are expanding the ways they are using art in teaching all disciplines in our curriculum. They are doing a great job.
Our chef designs a nutritionally strategic menu of delicious, home-cooked square meals. Children enjoy breakfast, lunch, and a snack at no additional cost. Mealtime is an important part of the CLC curriculum.
