MiniMakers® - Grades K - 5 - Tuesday & Wednesday, 9:00 am - 2:00 pm 

MiniMakers® is a STEAM-based learning program for K-5 students, dedicated to providing a unique environment in which students have a well-rounded, beyond-the- box classroom experience. Through MiniMakers®, students are guided by teachers who care for each child's unique learning style and treat the students with respect while enforcing boundaries. Our multi-age approach to the learning experience allows students to flourish while serving as both mentor and mentee and reinforces social responsibility to help the students to develop a strong sense of self in relation to those around them and their community at large. MiniMakers® students develop practical skills and real-world experience as they simultaneously gain confidence and mastery of developmentally appropriate concepts and skills. Our new Focused Work Sessions allow your child time to bring work from home and complete it in the company of peers each day.
