See a class your child would love, but can't make the date?

No problem!  Gather your friends and family and pick a date and time that at least three appropriately aged children can attend and email Ms. Amaya.  If she can make your date work, she would be delighted to teach your group as a private class.  Have an altogether different class in mind? It's very likely she could teach that too. Just reach out and ask!

“Follow the child.”
