Our Preschool Playschoolers are thriving each morning at Nolte! We focus on socialization and learning through play in all content areas, utilizing a daily structure with circle time, centers and snack, and emphasizing hands-on, student-centered learning. Playschool is offered each morning from 9:00-11:30 am, for those ages 3-5, and toilet trained. There is a maximum of 12 children per classroom with 1-2 faculty supporting the students as needed. All classes are team-taught by our Nolte faculty, and children and instructors are masked. Check enrollment availability at our website.
ShawnT, one of our Modern dance instructors, has accepted a full-time temporary position at Bard HS and Early College in Washington, DC as faculty in performing arts, and so will no longer be teaching at Nolte Academy in the new year. They will also be resuming their master's degree in Transpersonal Art Therapy at Naropa University (Boulder, CO) in the fall of 2022. A message from ShawnT: "I want to share my heart and gratitude with everyone at Nolte Academy and please know you will be greatly missed and always loved! To quote Cher, ‘You haven’t seen the last of me!'" We wish ShawnT the best in their artistic and professional endeavors!
We will begin measuring for spring recital costumes at the first of the year (see dates and venues below!). Those who wish to opt-out of our year-end performances should contact us via email by January 15, 2022.
