Little Architects: kids age 3-5 years old
Our little learners will explore architecture and the arts through our Little Architects drop-off program every Saturday morning 9:30am-11:00am. Over the course of the term, children will be exploring a variety of concepts that will expand their understanding of the visual and physical concepts that are integral to architecture and the arts. They will be using Magformers to recreate a range of structures, from basic buildings to famous landmarks! The Magformers will also be used to improve children's understanding of 2D and 3D objects, whilst also putting their artistic skills to good use as they design structures on paper.
