Music

As well as being fun, music helps the body and mind work together and ignites all areas of child development. Perry Street’s weekly music classes develop our children’s motor, language and intellectual skills.

Language

At Perry Street we believe that exposure to languages boosts critical thinking, problem and listening skills as well as helping children embrace diversity, Our weekly language classes are fun and tailored to the individual children in the room.

Nature Play

We believe that nature is a powerful teacher. The learning environment is rich with natural resources, and educators weave into their learning programs notions of sustainability and connectedness to the natural world through outdoor play in the three yards for the different age groups.
