Interested in exposing your child to developmental concepts like physical expression, creativity, and world culture? Join us for the 2020 TPS Mini Masters Series!
We are looking forward to a safe…mostly outside…FUN year of Mini Masters!
Beginning in September, MM will be held the third Saturday of most every month (except December) through February 2021. For prospective students and families, these up-tempo classes with Prairie faculty will introduce children ages 1 to 3 to a variety of important concepts, while also affording parents and kids the chance to participate in some of Primary School’s favorite activities and lessons!
All classes will take place on The Prairie School campus (4050 Lighthouse Drive, Wind Point), beginning at 8:30AM. Sessions will typically last between 45 minutes and one hour. All Mini Masters will have the option to receive an individually-packaged snack and drink. Classes are $10 per child, but a special rate of $40 is available for anyone registering for the entire five-class series prior to the September date.
While enrollment is open to all children ages 1-3, class activities will be best suited for those 2 and up. Please note: pre-registration is required for all classes. Unfortunately we can not accommodate drop-ins.
Class size is limited; registration for an upcoming class will open once the preceding class is concluded. To ensure the discounted $40 rate for all classes, a child must be registered for the full Mini Masters Series prior to Friday, September 19th.
Specific classes will be announced later this fall, but themes will be similar to previous years. Past MM lessons have included music-making, art, yoga, and gardening.
