CPSC provides a variety of enrichment programs as part of the children’s overall experience at the center. Some of our programs, such as Singing with Mr. Wiley and Hot Shots, are woven into the weekly schedule as part of our standard curriculum. In addition, we offer an optional activity of classical dance (parents must register separately for this option).
Music with Mr. Wiley
Mr. Wiley is a Bay Area musician for children and has been at CPSC for many years. His bimonthly visits to each classroom provide opportunities to sing-a-long, see various musical instruments and take a strum, and participate in small classroom concerts. There is no additional fee for this, but a part of the CPSC program.
Optional Soccer (Coach Ken)
On Mondays, Coach Ken teaches young children not just the rules to become great soccer enthusiasts, but also weaves in deeply rooted social-emotional learning, sportsmanship, and dynamic play. These classes are an option for CPSC parents of children 3 years old and up. Registration materials may be found online at Coach Ken Soccer.
Optional Dance Connections
Cindy Ginanni of Dance Connections offers dance classes for preschoolers on the Cubberley Community Center campus. While there is no formal affiliation between Dance Connections and CPSC, many of our preschool children sign up for once a week dance classes. Cindy collects the children for dance class and signs them out. After the class she escorts them back to CPSC and signs them back into our care. These dance classes are an option for CPSC parents of children 3 years old and up. Registration materials may be found online at Dance Connection Palo Alto.
Exploration Science (Junior Museum of Palo Alto)
We have secured the Junior Museum of Palo Alto to bring naturalists, biologists and environmentalists to CPSC in Exploration Science with Young Children, into our classrooms once a week, as a part of your tuition. This special relationship that CPSC has began several years ago and we we offer it to our Senior Preschool (3.5-5.5) classrooms.
