At SALT's Playhouse at Montgomery School, the September 2021- June 2022 school year session will be offering classes in the mornings on Montgomery School's beautiful Chester Springs location for ages 3-4. Each day at the Playhouse, your child will participate in socialization, collaboration, and opportunities for self-expression in a safe and nurturing environment. They will establish foundational social and pre-academic skills that will support your child’s transition from home into the classroom environment as we ignite their love of learning while building confidence through creativity and the arts.
The school year will take place from September 8, 2021-June 8, 2022.
During your child’s time at the Playhouse, they will collaborate with peers to socialize and problem solve, as well as self-express through the arts:
• Dramatic storytelling
• Music and Movement
• Dance (ballet and tap)
• Fine Arts
Your child will also learn pre-academic skills such as:
• Daily routines
• Phonemic awareness
• Sound/symbol awareness
• Number sense and one-to-one correspondence
• Environmental awareness
Your child will also get to enjoy Montgomery School's beautiful outdoor campus as they:
• Help to grow plants in a garden
• Play on a playground
• Go on exploration adventures
The children will put on multiple performances for friends and family throughout the school year. You can choose between two, three, and five mornings a week for your child to attend, 8:30AM-12:30PM!
The SALT Playhouse's mission is not to train up young performers, but rather to instill self-confidence in children. The ability to present oneself before a crowd is a noteworthy skill to possess and one that is easily instilled at an early age when self-consciousness is forming. SALT believes that when children are confident, they are less apt to be susceptible to or participate in bullying, they feel empowered to use their strengths and abilities for the betterment of others, and they are less likely to struggle with insecurities and anxieties. We believe in preserving childhood and letting kids be kids, while developing them into leaders of love and kindness. And we believe that every child has a voice, which we strive to help them find and express.
