TUESDAY
World Explorers — Valerie Humenik
PreK-Grade 1
Cost: $385.00 ($10.00 material cost included)

There’s no need to pack your bags in order to explore the world at Santa Catalina!

In fact, we even send our curious questions to educators and friends living in other regions of the world and video conference to hear their answers! Everyone knows it’s impossible to become a globe-trotter without a passport, but don’t worry, we have you covered. Each week your child records his or her exciting journey across the continents by adding a "stamp” to their very own passport. Join us as we embark on a global adventure that will truly bring geography to life!
