Preschool - Kindergarten Enrichment
My name is Shari Latta, and young children are my passion!
I feel incredibly fortunate to be at Our Lady of Malibu School, two days a week, teaching science-based music and art, with a variety of themes. I am so happy to spend an hour or more with the Preschool class, followed by the Transitional Kindergarten, and then Kindergarten. I believe that children learn when things are fun. I have a curriculum full of songs and art that support themes such as Marine Life, World Geography, Rocks, Local Wildlife, Reptiles, Insects and Arachnids, US History, and so much more. These topics are presented with custom-written songs and art projects that support the theme. The children hardly know they are actually learning! We typically do about 30 minutes of music, dance, and visual games about the week's topic, followed by a creative art project that supports the theme.
After receiving my Preschool teaching certificate, I was lucky enough to open and run Children's Creative Workshop Preschool from 1982 through 2022. We closed due to a lack of space, and I promptly received a call from OLM, asking if I would join the team.
I'm genuinely grateful for the opportunity that OLM has given me, and I look forward to my Tuesdays and Thursdays wholeheartedly each week!
