Enrichment Programs

Music Appreciation

At Golden Gate Guppies, children will learn - through musical play – the fundamentals of basic Music Theory: Pitch, Tempo, Rhythm, Melody and Harmony. Listening and singing will also be a big part of every class! Every child will be encouraged to “perform” - either in a group or solo - for his/her peers in but never pushed to do so. Our goal is to instill in each young “Guppy” an appreciation for music of all sorts, and the courage and self esteem to continue to explore their artistic inclinations in the future.

  • Imagination and creativity to develop ideas, characters and narratives
  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development

  • Physical Education

    Movement is the child’s first “language” and the more proficient they become in this first language, the better they will develop other powers of expression, exploration and development.

    Positive movement and sport experiences enable children to know and grow in an environment that is rich in wonderful experiences. As we know, success-orientated experiences empower young children. This establishes confident, competent children who know motivation and perseverance, and who are able to take suitable risks in all areas of their learning and development.
