Dance Classes
Our Ballet program introduces children to dance in a creative, fun, and friendly learning environment. We offer Ballet Programs through JM Dance Center., a business that offers quality dance classes to Schools and Child Care Centers. Teachers are highly qualified and most hold a Bachelor degree in Dance. The goal of this program is to teach the love for dance to our students while they learn discipline, improve flexibility, foster movement creativity, enhance self-esteem, increase strength, develop motor skills and coordination, and expand music appreciation.

Parent Involvement & Support (Open Houses, Transition & Orientation Meetings)
“It takes a village to raise a child” is a famous proverb meaning it takes creating a sense of community and collaboration for a child to learn, grow, adapt and integrate into a functional society. Starts with the parents and other family members, and it expands to the school’s teachers, staff and the broader community. At Just Kids Centers we take pride in providing as much support as we can to our student’s parents and extended family members. We hold Open House Meetings at the beginning of each school year. Transition meetings for parents of our 3K/VPK students entering VPK/Kindergarten. Orientation meetings and trainings for parents covering a broad range of interest topics from homework completion, school projects and at home learning; to strategies for coping with the stress of daily life as well as parenting, communication and decision making skills. We are committed to creating school-parent-partnerships which will assure higher levels of education linked to student achievement and ultimately school success.
