Primary Specials

Movement Education

Movement Education combines the principles of Maria Montessori and dance/ movement therapy to “follow the child.” Each movement group will present students with opportunities to integrate mindfulness, creative and structured movement, developmental body organizations, and interpersonal neurobiology. Through personalized curriculum and community building, Movement Education promotes self-confidence, creative expression, self-regulation, and body awareness. Primary students have weekly Movement Education groups, as well as daily outdoor play time.


Mariposas Spanish School has been teaching children Spanish since its inception in 1999. Home grown in Austin, Texas, Mariposas is a hands-on, thematically organized program that allows children to learn Spanish through music, literature, games, visual aids, sign language, art, and beyond. Spanish is offered to YCC and Primary children for an additional cost.  See more details and register here.

One of their trademarks is the developmentally appropriate curriculum they use that emphasizes creative play, enjoyment of sport, and character-building lessons. Their sessions range from 30-40 minutes in length, and the coaches are energetic and enthusiastic individuals who love working with kids of all ages.
