Who We Are
THE CHILDREN’S ARTS CORNER was founded in 1986 by Madeleine Kando, MEd, Movement Therapist and a graduate of Lesley College. Ms. Kando was educated in France and Holland. She is a former member of the Chameleon Dance Company. She also holds a degree in linguistics and speaks five languages fluently.
Recognize your Child?
The Theory of Multiple Intelligence shows that children learn in many different ways, with each child having a preferred style. Children who like to talk and tell stories learn through words and language. If they like to dance, act, or are good at sports, they are physical learners. Musical children learn by singing and listening to sounds, while children who learn visually love to look at images and draw. We have designed our program so that we acknowledge and meet these differences, and give children positive reinforcement from the start. Thus, they develop a love for learning that remains with them for life.
Our classes are taught by a staff of artists and educators with masters-level degrees in their fields, who combine knowledge of child development with a love for the arts, a fascination with education, and, above all, a genuine enjoyment in working with children. Our classes are small, our teachers dedicated and caring.
We are located in the Historic Munroe Center for the Arts building at 1403 Massachusetts Avenue, one half mile from Lexington Center.
