Class Descriptions

From babies to our elementary aged children, there’s something for everyone!

Please note, age ranges for all of our children’s classes are carefully chosen to optimize enjoyment of the subject as well as for a child’s ability to thrive among their peers. We ask that your child meet the minimum age requirement by the first day of class.

If you find the need to change from one class to another, we will honor your request but only during the first two weeks of each semester.
