Clarion School Story Time
In case you didn’t know, a fab new school, Clarion, is coming to our desert city in September! With a super-duper American curriculum, these experts are getting us excited with all sorts of events – and this week, they are offering us Story Time! That’s right, mamas, it’s time to bring the little ones along for an afternoon of storytelling, coffee and cookies… Sounds like a party to us! Plus, since Clarion is all about delivering a progressive curriculum to the children of Dubai, their experiential learning curriculum strives to help students gain a lasting understanding of all topics, so we’re excited to see how they bring story tales to life!
