Little Luminaries 2s
Tuesdays & Thursdays (Fridays optional) 9:30-11:30am
In this first separated level, 2 (or almost 2) year-old children will have a chance to engage in creative, structured play while working on socialization and developing autonomy. Each class will be based around a central theme or concept and include circle time with discussion, music and movement, an art and/or sensory activity, a story, and just enough free play/exploration.

Mondays & Wednesdays (Fridays optional) 9:30am-12:00pm
In our 3s class, independence, community, and collaborative learning are emphasized as themes involve even larger concepts. It is during this year that we focus on fostering self-confidence, early learning skills, and problem solving techniques.

An introduction to Shine’s signature class for the youngest learners, children will have a chance to engage in creative, structured play. Each class will be based around a central theme or concept and include circle time with music, an art or sensory activity, a story, guided free play, and exploration. A nurturing, supportive environment encourages socialization, participation, and imagination. A wonderful precursor to a more formal 2’s program. Adult participation required.

Inspired by one of the most popular programs at our Summer Camp, each Wednesday a different local artist or artisan leads a one-of-a-kind, hands-on experience. From weaving to sculpture, fine art to crafts, this signature program is our love letter to The East End!
