Studio Art supplies the media and the instruction for customizing everything from canvases and pottery to skateboards and sneakers. During birthday parties, afterschool programs, and camps, artists transform everyday objects into one-of-a-kind works of art. Mirrors, moccasins, and belt buckles dress up in an arsenal of paints, glitters, jewels, and trinkets according to creative whims or the demands of the preschool fashion scene. Classes hone specific skills such as sewing and fashion design, and teen night occupies adolescents with henna, beading, and scrapbooking in an informal setting.
During each 30-minute service, Aamco of East Northport's certified technicians drain old, exhausted fluids, replace them with up to 5 quarts of new oil, and install a filter to keep engines contaminant- and guilt-free. After lubricating grease fittings, the staff embarks on a 36-point ProtectCheck inspection, a bumper-to-bumper examination that assesses the health of the vehicle's most vital components and organ systems. Each oil change ends with a car wash, which scrubs away surface dirt and grime to reveal a shiny automotive exterior.
STEP Preschool's teachers don't just shape kids cognitively—they also develop them physically. That's because the state-licensed preschool employs multitalented staffers who lead clinics in soccer, T-ball, gymnastics, and other sports to help refine the motor skills and kinesthetic learning of children aged 2–5. Physical education boasts as integral a role in the curriculum as reading and writing, math, technology, and other academic areas that prepare kids for kindergarten and a tenure-track professorship.
