No specific dress is required, but we do ask that you avoid giving the children shoes with laces on the day of classes.

Village Little Preschool
Wednesdays 9:30-10:00 AM
Village Little Preschool is affiliated with the Abundant Life Assembly of God Church in Cupertino and they’ve been operating nearly 40 years! We dance in the sanctuary, where I move the chairs into the shape of a square and teach the children to use their “sweetest voices” and “calmest bodies” to enter the sacred space and twirl and jump! These children are remarkably charitable; they are always helping each other, even after they say things like “not friends anymore!” They always seem to recover and re-friend. http://www.villagelittlepreschool.com/
Sunflower Learning Center
Wednesdays 10:40-11:10 AM and 11:10-11:40 AM
Sunflower Learning Center is an absolutely bustling bilingual preschool with a very rich creative activity program. The staff is warm and teaches both English and Chinese to the children. As a result of their methods, the children are gloriously focused! My youngest group comes in when they’re around 2 years old and already they’re practiced in following the teacher. http://www.sunflowerlearningcenter.com/

Twinkle Twinkle Preschool
Fridays 9:45-10:30 AM
Twinkle Twinkle Preschool is a home preschool with a remarkably familial atmosphere. Children help each other and are rewarded for their consideration with warmth and friendship. There is a very high teacher to student ratio and the curriculum is abundant with creative arts and activities. The school seems to suggest a star can only return the light you shine their way and boy do these kids return. http://twinklechildcare.com/
All children attending Twinkle Twinkle are included in the weekly dance lessons.
I teach weekly classes at the Montessori School of Silicon Valley (MSOSV). Among the most loyal to the teachings of Maria Montessori, the MSOSV schools are friendly and philosophically pure schools that put “Children first. Always.” I taught dance and music at the MSOSV schools during the 2015-2016 school year, after which the Executive Directoress invited me to bring the Dance with Miss Sara curriculum to all four of their campuses.
To enroll in classes at these schools, please reach out to Miss Sara.
