Introducing: MEGA Wonders  

MEGA Wonders is a 90-minute drop-off, kids-only class at CMON, with a hands-on
approach to learning through play, helping to lay a strong educational foundation for
kids ages 4, 5, and 6 years old. In this class, children explore, ask and answer questions,
solve problems, and interact with their peers and teachers. The 32-week program will
take place from August 22, 2024 through May 16, 2025 and is limited to 16 students
It is structured with circle time, story-time, small group centers, and independent play –
resembling a morning program at an early learning center.
