What is it?
Play-based learning through movement.
As a new mom herself, Ms. Miriam realized the need for preschool students to have a program designed for children who weren't ready or desiring of a traditional preschool program. So she designed a program that would welcome preschool-aged students who would benefit from the free flowing social interaction and emphasis on the arts.
In bringing in Ms. Sarah as our Plié Playschool Director, we benefit from her experience leading the local chapter of Free Forest School. She brings a love for nature and experience leading children in outdoor learning, in addition to our dance elements. Our movement program includes dance, art, theater, yoga, sensory play, and special guest artists in rotation.
During dance breaks, we’ll incorporate sensory play, outdoor excursions, books, and music.
Plié Playschool at Durango Dance is a license-exempt childcare program.
Who can attend?
We are currently accepting boys and girls ages 2.5-4. Students must be potty trained (special needs students are encouraged to speak with the director about how we may be the best fit for them and how we can best accommodate them).
