Childhood is not a race to see how quickly a child can read, write and count. Childhood is a small window of time to learn and develop at the pace which is right for each individual child. -Magda Gerber

SPECIAL ART​

Gwynn Di Pilla is certified to teach in NJ and PA. She has been teaching since graduating college with a degree in art education in 1989. Since moving to Haddonfield in 1993 she has developed and offers classes for adults and children through the Haddonfield Adult School. She also participated in the Art Goes to School initiative, a volunteer program that teaches art history to children. Gwynn was named one of South Jersey’s top artists in South Jersey Magazine in 2011.

Gwynn visits our school once per month for the three and four year classes in order to introduce the children to a variety of art experiences. The children work with clay, plaster crafts, paper mache and have a finished project that they can be proud of. You will find yourself displaying all of their wonderful works of art. Families who have had multiple children come through our programs look forward each year to the special art projects to add to their collection.

​SPECIAL MUSIC​

Our music teacher, Helen Sneller, has been a musician since a young girl, playing clarinet and piano. She is active in Covenant’s music ministry. She teaches children’s choir, private piano, and music lessons.

The children receive music instruction every other week and have the opportunity to engage in a variety of music making activities. Helen holds a certificate in “Music Together”, an early childhood music organization. She uses the “First Steps in Music” curriculum by Dr. John Feierabend, a national leader in early childhood music education and a Professor of Music at the University of Hartford. The early years are a fantastic time to fill their ears with music and get their bodies moving.

The children play rhythm instruments, sing, learn chants, play musical games, and move to the beat. We sing lots of new songs, as well as learning about the beautiful singing voices that God has given each one of us. The journey to a child’s discovery of their musicality begins in the earliest years and Helen is excited to help your child on his or her way.
