Character Counts Program

This program provides a unified approach, which, in and of itself, strengthens the program.

Engaging Science Activities

Our program brings science to life and allows the children to create, manipulate, and participate in complex, yet enjoyable scientific projects. Kids have the opportunity to observe, feel, listen, and—on occasion—sample their creations. Your children will utilize all the scientific steps necessary to make these projects come to life. They will measure, pour, identify the physical materials, and much more with this engaging program.

Educational Blocks

These amazing, fun shapes help your children discover mathematical concepts. This activity also teaches your child how to solve problems, discover the law of gravitational pull, and create new ideas involving critical thinking for designing new builds. The learning block helps kids uncover what it takes to design large-scale buildings, which require a larger base to support the size of the structure. Kids can engage, socialize, and create friendships as they work together with team-building exercises to create new buildings, houses, and towns.
