Art Studio Guelph Daycare introduced a unique learning program which is suitable for preschoolers and school age children. Based on 52 theme weeks of the year program kids will expand their vocabulary, fine motor skills, letters and numbers, storytelling, creativity and social behaviors. Order of themes is subject to changes without notice.
Most of the themes are in line with national or global events like Canada Day or Earth Day, they are also in line with seasons and daily aspects of life like winter sports and games or visit at the doctor’s office.
First and most important in my opinion: We give kisses and hugs!
Lots of fun is guaranteed!
