KinderPrimes Program (Age 4 to Age 6)
Our KinderPrimes program is an excellent way to introduce the long-term benefits of dramatic arts participation and public speaking to young children. The program ensures that all children are actively involved in the creative drama activities, games and learn to express themselves in front of others. The instructor weaves creative drama, storytelling, games and communication skills in each class. We make sure that all students are comfortable and recognized in the class.
PrimeKids Program (Age 7 to Age 10)
Our Primekids program focuses deeper on students’ self expression skills. The creative drama and public speaking themes become more advanced at this level. The program involves students in creative drama and presentations where children are made to interact with peers in and out of character; it allows them to work on problem solving, by themselves, or as a team. This builds their communication skills as well. New scenes and activities are held in each class.
TweenTeens Program (Age 11 to Age 14)
The confident, articulate child finds it easier to make friends, accept new challenges and explore new directions. The TweenTeens program for children ages 11-14 is designed to help each child achieve these invaluable life skills. The creative drama and public speaking themes become more advanced at this level. Students in our TweenTeens program participate in a wide range of creative activities including speech, creative drama with a cause, improvisation, snippets and scene starters.

Creative writing is an art of writing that involves more than putting words together to form sentences. It involves a series of planned situations and activities that gradually lead to independent writing. From as early as preschool, a child's writing begins to take shape as he learns to interpret print. As he grows, his understanding of that print is translated into a greater command of the language. Essentially, with practice and guidance his writing unfolds as a more personal stamp.
We offer creative writing to children until middle school. We teach creative writing with Six traits, prompts and graphic organizers.
