Afternoon Program

Our pilot afternoon program for 2017 was sucessfully run by our very own Kindergarten teacher, Miho Matsugu, so we will be continuing it for the 2018 session. It is our goal to maintain a 4-to-1 ratio.

The Afternoon Program has a different format than morning DNG classes. However, we still include fun Japanese-American heritage cultural activities.

  • Language & word games
  • Arts & Crafts
  • Exercise/Movement
  • Library corner
  • Cooking projects
  • Special guests & projects
