Iron Coyote staff provide a fun and educational gross motor experience for students from 15 months old through Pre-Kindergarten at each of our three locations. Our Treasures students will also participate in classes during the summer program.
Trained music therapists visit each classroom weekly, providing the student with music experiences that enhance the curriculum. Your child will also participate in Spring and Christmas sing-a-longs and a Christmas program. Pre-Kindergarten students participate in various community events.
Four Seasons Swimming Lessons
Lessons will be offered to children through Four Seasons Health Club. A fee will be charged to the parents for eight weeks of lessons and transportation. Due to the popularity of this program, there will be a lottery held for interested families.
Staff members from the Bloomington and Normal Public Library visit each of our locations periodically to read with all the classrooms. Our pre-school and pre-k classes also take field trips to the libraries for story time. If your child becomes involved in our summer program, they will have the opportunity to participate in various library reading programs. Students will be challenged to read different stories, use their imaginations, and further their literacy skills while also winning fun prizes!
