Presenting the internationally renowned, research-based music and movement program Music Together, Over the Moon invites parents and infant-to-kindergarten-aged children to sing, dance, listen, and explore musical instruments in a variety of fun-filled classes. During weekly 45-minute Music Together sessions, adult caregivers accompany budding music muses, delving into the power of music and creativity through a variety of experiential, non-performance-based exercises. The mixed-age classes focus on natural family-filled learning as younger children watch and imitate older kids and learn a 25-song course catalog. Pint-sized sound-seekers sing, practice rhythmic rhymes, and play instruments free from classroom formalities and engage in family-building creativity.
An innovative, child-focused program pioneered in Korea, E.nopi's educational classes have enriched and enlightened curious kids for 30 years with individualized approaches that strive to understand the child’s point of view. Each class begins with a skills assessment to tailor instruction to children's strengths before launching into a fun and approachable lesson that may use learning aides such as colorful workbooks, whimsical wooden shapes, and entertaining audio CDs. New concepts are continually revisited in a variety of creative contexts to reinforce learned skills and keep ideas from taking their summer escapes to libraries in the Caribbean, and light, consistent take-home work is encouraged to keep intellectual elements flowing. Math classes stress critical thinking and problem solving to engage brainy bambinos in independent thought as they glean a better understanding of arithmetic, patterns, geometry, and more. Meanwhile, English classes streamline skills in listening, speaking, reading, and writing, resulting in the ability to lull parents to sleep with softly read news articles. Geared toward ages 3–14, each class is aligned to U.S. educational standards and can serve as educational enrichment, a supplement to regular schooling, or preparation for being a contestant on Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader?.

In addition to welcoming professionals, Sweatshop's recording engineers and other seasoned staff lead workshops for novices.
