Introducing COCA KinderCrates!

Each COCA KinderCrate is a theme-based preschool unit based on COCA’s popular early childhood camps. During crate work students ignite their curiosity through exploration; work on gross motor skills such as jumping, stretching and balancing; refine fine motor skills by drawing, painting, and cutting; work on mathematics by counting and patterning; explore literacy skill development through interacting with stories and engage their imagination through expressive arts.

Each crate is comprised of:

  • 2-3 hours of video instruction by 2 specialist teaching artists in easy to share 10-20 minute segments. Parents set their own pace and timing for their family.
  • Materials and supplies for arts and crafts activities in the “Create Crate”
  • Specific unit alignment to Missouri Early Childhood Learning Standards
  • Supplementary Reading Ideas

Each Kindercrate is $45

If your family lives outside the St Louis area, there is an additional $10 shipping fee. Please allow 1 week for shipping.
