Elliott's Classes continues its warm, nurturing environment into the summer in Playing, Creating, Growing Grown Up and Me Camp, for ages 18 months to 3.5 years.
With 25+ years of experience, Elliott's Classes is an Upper West Side mainstay, educating children using "The Elliott Method" developed by Elliott Cortez, Ph.D. Central to the method is a curriculum that incorporates movement science with child development theory to encourage physical, cognitive, social, and emotional development.
Experienced instructors are trained to look at the world from a child's perspective. Campers participate in a day of creative play, music, art, story time, rooftop water play, and gym, in both English and Spanish. 2.5 hour sessions will make trips to the park, community gardens, and take neighborhood walks! A caregiver or parent is required to stay with the child; and we provide a 'Grown Up Lounge' with tables, chairs, full Wifi access... (coffee, tea, muffins, Wifi, oh my!).
Pricing per day (also includes Unlimited Open Play access):
Session begins June 4. Sign up for any number of day and week combinations. No minimum!
Children will enjoy splashing in our kiddie pools and water tables, riding around in our kiddie cars, playing with our parachutes, see saw, and more! Or, they can lounge in the shade while still enjoying the fresh air while reading a book with our staff.
art, story, and creative play
Children will experience circle and story time after which they will work on an art project based on the story. They will of course also have time for creative play, where they will play with puzzles, our kitchen sets, trains, blocks, library, and dress up station!
daily trips to the park
Our 9:00-11:30 and 1:00-3:30 sessions will take daily trips to the park (weather permitting), community gardens, and neighborhood strolls.
The kids will also have a blast in a daily gym class, which will be a part structured part unstructured chance for them to let loose and exersize in a safe environment.
