Class Structure: Grades K-1

Our Mini Nerds classes for grades entering K-1, are designed and taught by the amazing preschool and kindergarten teachers at Desert Sun. They are a montessori style class and include tons of engaging stations and hands on activities. Typically, each day starts with a short lesson during circle time, followed by time to explore outdoor stations if weather permits. The Desert Sun campus is well shaded and many of the outdoor stations incorporate water, so our minis stay cool, but we also watch the temperature, especially in afternoon classes. The nerds eat a snack from home and head back inside for another short lesson followed by indoor building activities and more stations. Exploration is paused again for the last short lesson and songs as we wrap up the class. Mini nerds classes tend to be messy!
