Our name, “ume ume,” reflects the focus of our program and the importance of bringing everyone together (you = you + me), as we create and learn about our world through music and the arts. Ume Ume Programs implement an original curriculum through an arts integrated approach to learning, for children under age 12. We develop a young child’s familiarity with music, dance, and art while encouraging experimentation, exploration, and creative thinking. We also offer daily drop-in classes, day camps, private lessons in violin and piano, and birthday parties.
Urban Umbrella is a challenging after-school program for children ages 4-12. In providing enrichment through a comprehensive curriculum, the Ecological Covenant, we help the highly motivated student further his or her gifts by working on projects in content areas not generally found in the regular school setting. Using a heuristic, interdisciplinary, developmental approach in thematic hands-on activities, it places the child at the center of the learning process; the teacher is an enabler connecting research tools with exciting topics that catch the imagination and increase critical thinking skills.
