Discover, Imagine and Create is an original summer program designed to meet the needs of intellectually and creatively gifted youngsters who will be entering kindergarten in the fall. This course will encourage the development of creative thinking skills through stimulating experiences incorporating language, reading, math and science concepts as well as drawing, painting and imaginative play.
