Children's Curriculum

San Marcos Parents Child Workshop's environment is well-equipped and varied. Children learn to take initiative and responsibility by choosing their area of activity. Because of the low adult/child ratio (1:4), each child is assisted and encouraged in this exploration.

Cooperative Group time

This part of the day is our closure for the children. It develops community and offers a wonderful time for observation of children in a group. Children have the opportunity to learn new songs, explore curriculum concepts a little more closely and build on pre-k skills.

Extracurricular Activities

Throughout the year we offer a variety of classes and experiences such as music classes from local artists and teachers.
