PROGRAMS & CURRICULUM
At Carmel Mountain Preschool we allow a few select high-quality outside companies to offer extra-curricular classes to our children. These classes are offered either from 12:30-1:10 (during the beginning of nap) or from 3:30-4:15pm. If your child attends Carmel Mountain Preschool half day then you would pick them directly after class instead of 12:15. Classes are offered on different days. Please contact the teacher directly.
Music and Movement
Nurturing a child’s innate musical abilities from a young age fosters a deep love for music and rhythm that will last a lifetime. Each session’s classes are centered around a culturally diverse collection of children’s songs. Through the use of singing, call and response, fingerplays, and a multitude of instruments and manipulative, children are introduced to the basics of music and rhythm including pitch, tempo, dynamics, and steady beat. Music classes are a fun and creative way for young children to increase verbal skills, motor coordination, concentration, timing, and memory and love for music.

Hip Hop Dance Class
Claire Cafri is so excited to bring her Hip Hop dance program to Carmel Mountain Preschool. Claire is a qualified full time dance instructor and has been teaching this program at various preschools for several years now. This is a great dance program for both boys and girls. All the music is age appropriate pop songs with a mix of creative songs that help form this fun program. Every few months we invite the parents to come watch our hip hop performance where we show you some of our best moves in a fun new dance.
Kids yoga is a fun class that explores the world through yoga. This is a fun upbeat class that infuses dancing, props and movement using yoga as it’s inspiration. Physically, it enhances their flexibility, strength, coordination, and body awareness. In addition, their concentration and sense of calmness and relaxation improve. Doing yoga, children exercise, play, connect more deeply with the inner self, and develop an intimate relationship with the natural world that surrounds them. Yoga brings that marvelous inner light that all children have to the surface.
