Afterschool Clubs

A tour of the Music Room includes keyboards, violins, and guitars, as well as percussion instruments, all with their own Music Reading Readiness Kits, a published series from http://www.MyMusicalMind.com

Art projects include drawing, painting, sculpting and crafts.

Objects from Nature in my Texas Wildscape invite children to explore them.

Seed growing and planting lets us participate in growing our own food.

An evolving curriculum based on individual learning styles for confidence and independence supports the child weekly.

Parent Participation

When pre-school children come for music classes, parents are asked to copy what I do.  This guides and comforts the young child, who is learning how to behave in new settings of all kinds.  By watching the parent, the child learns that it is OK to do new things.  S/He is empowered to try them out in a nurturing setting.

Philosophy

Our most precious resource is the minds of our children.  Teaching young children to engage their minds, hands, bodies, emotions, spirit, gives them a life vocabulary of substance and meaning.

Children enjoy reading when they are read to.

Children enjoy making music, making art.

Children enjoy counting and exploring numerical relationships.

Children enjoy nature, gardening and cooking.

Children enjoy being outside and they enjoy all kinds of games.

It is important that children move and experience the real world in real time.

Kacky Muse After-school Activity Clubs gives children strength and confidence in their enjoyment of arts and Nature.
