Where children can use their imaginations to be anything they want to be. They are given the opportunity to create beautiful pieces of art work, as well as, learn about the world we all share. The following programs are integrated into the classroom: nature, movement, music and Spanish. Outdoor playtime is always an all time favorite, no matter if it is sunny or snowy!
At Torbank, we pride ourselves on the fact that we are afforded the opportunity to share new experiences with your children. Each day is a new day filled with new experiences and memories to last a lifetime! Please take a look below at what a typical year looks like!
