Academics:
At Creative Scholars, we present academics by encouraging children to be actively engaged in the learning process. We focus on math, science and literacy development using many different techniques and methods. We view learning as a process that continues and develops as children play. By paying attention to what engages children, we learn to ask the questions that will lead them to their own discoveries making learning more meaningful.

Drama / Creative Movement:
Our drama program is focused on the creative process rather than a finished product. With plenty of guided encouragement, the children will learn to act out emotions, work cooperatively, play games with their imaginations and explore improvisation.

Foreign Language:
Our foreign language element consists of listening to and repeating vocabulary and phrases relevant in the classroom and at home. We amplify exposure daily through songs and stories in the featured language. In addition, our neighbors “Language Stars” will be coming to our classrooms to provide their FunImmersion® curriculum & related materials for our children.

Music:
Our music component provides children an introduction to different composers / musicians and their music. Children will have an opportunity to explore different instruments, listen to their unique sounds and when possible make their own.

Visual Arts:
Our visual arts facet pushes beyond traditional arts and crafts. First, we introduce children to artists, mediums, techniques, styles and periods by presenting various works of art. Children then have the opportunity to create their own masterpiece based on what they've studied.

Program hours are as follows:

A.M. preschool: 8:30-12:30
P.M. preschool: 2:00-5:30
All day preschool: 7:30-5:30

The South Side School, Chicago
Courses / Programs
The South Side School is an affordable independent elementary school with a Waldorf-inspired curriculum near Chicago's Loop in the vibrant urban environment of East Pilsen and we are happy to serve Lower West Side, Pilsen and South Side communities. We draw on an 90-year-old teaching tradition that engages the "whole child" - intellectually, socially, emotionally and physically - in time with the natural developmental stages of childhood. We are focused not simply on the college your child will attend, but rather the person your child will become: curious, compassionate, self-reliant.

We are a new elementary school in Chicago, whose curriculum is inspired by Waldorf education. The uniqueness in a Waldorf education can be found mainly in how and when the students are taught-not in what they are taught. First comes the experience of the subject and from this experience comes the understanding of the concept.

This genuine learning process, from perception, to feeling, to idea, is the basis for later abstract and intellectual learning. We teach our children in the deepest manner possible, allowing lessons to become fully incorporated into the individual.
