SOLA kids play and learn with
art, crafts, music, pretend, science, nature, theatre, English, Spanish, sign
language, mathematics and social skills in a nurturing environment that tailors
the curriculum to each child's needs and development.
Kids can partake in indoor and
outdoor activities from organized outdoor cooperative games, gardening and theatre,
to arts, cooking and music with professional artisans. We offer pottery, painting,
collage, drawing, model building, murals and more. SOLA is a TV and video game
free zone. We work at boosting imaginations and creativity!
We provide transportation from
many area schools usually involving the playing of air guitars and air drums
in the SOLA Van Band. We follow the traditional New Hanover County calendar.
Self esteem building and social skill development is the main goal of our Preschool
After School and Elementary After School programs.
Elementary After school students
receive homework help in a positive environment staffed with teachers, parents
and adult professionals, serving as coaches, mentors and lion tamers in the
game of life.
