Global Explorers Kids Preschool Sessions

Global Explorers Kids has been providing cultural workshops to preschoolers attending the Waters Elementary School state and tuition-based preschools and to preschoolers at All About Kids Learning Academy. Preschoolers are creating culturally-specific crafts, learning about a different culture each week. The sessions begin with a song, locating the country/culture on the map, and learning about the craft. Many times, children see real life examples of crafts from various cultures, before creating their own projects. Children have made Russian Matryoshka nesting dolls, Adinkra cloths from Ghana, Mexican animalitos, Tibetan prayer flags, Indian diwa lamps, Kenyan dolls, Japanese carp kites, and more. The program serves 85 preschoolers each week.
