If you have a child in grade K - 6, want your child to explore creativity through reading and writing, and want them to develop confidence in their self-expression, then the DROPLETS Basics program is a great opportunity for your child!

The Basics program is specially designed for children K-6 on a voyage of creative discovery. Through engaging word play, imaginative storytelling, and an emphasis on handwriting, The Basics cultivates not just literacy skills, but the confidence to share one’s own unique voice. Drip by drop, we make learning a delightful downpour!

Meets Monday - Thursday in the afternoons. Come once, once a week, or sign up for the whole program!

DROPLETS is hosted by Mary Ostrowski.

She's a children's author too!


Here is what parents are saying about working with Ms. Mary...

"The [writing] workshop was a much needed confidence-booster for our daughter. In the safe and nurturing camp environment, she was able to think creatively and try new things. We are very grateful that she learned new writing skills, but we are most thankful that the camp encouraged her to be in a growth mindset. I think the skills, practice, and confidence will be very helpful as my normally-anxious child transitions into the new year."
