River Forest Half Day Program '1-4 days a week' (Afternoon Pick-Up/Morning Drop Off Included)


Half Day Mornings or Half Day Afternoons at Academia.

Description: What is it like to be a child growing up in a different cultural environment? In Nepal, Guatemala, or China for example? What might they eat? What language do they speak? What music do they listen to? How did civilizations of the past compare to how people live today?

This class features thematic units, cooperative learning activities, and hands-on student centered methods to build on numeracy and literacy foundations, as well as social skills. Children engage in project-based learning, cultural activities and play to increase their communication skills and develop their social awareness. Cultural themes are explored through music, art, yoga, and craft-based activities and project work. Optional daily Spanish lessons included.  Nature walks and visits to local parks are incorporated into our class time (weather permitting).
