Mr. Pepe Llacsa teaches Spanish to our 2, 3, 4 and 5 year olds. Mr. Pepe was born in Peru. Both of his daughters have attended Open Arms. Through stories, songs and games, Mr. Pepe introduces the children to colors, numbers, and shapes.
Ms. Laura Morgan teaches Art to our 3, 4 , and 5 year olds. With her background in graphic design, this mom of two provides opportunities for children to grow in their creativity. The projects made with Ms. Laura often decorate our entryway.
Ms. Ann Barber has music with our 3, 4, and 5 year olds. In addition to learning some folk songs, the children learn about rhythm and other music basics. A favorite is when the rhythm instruments come out for all to enjoy.
Once a week our 2,3, 4, and 5 year old classes enjoy the library. Special stories are read to the children. The 5 year old class enjoys the privilege of checking out a book from the collection.
One of our biggest blessings at Open Arms is our full size gym. All of our classes have access to this area. During the long cold months or on rainy days, it is wonderful to have a place to run out all of our wiggles.
