NEW YORK, March 20 (UPI) -- A New York "preschool" featuring arts and crafts, Play-Doh activities and nap times is standing out for its unusual student body -- fully grown adults.
Preschool Mastermind, which charges $333 to $999 for classes, is offering adults the chance to re-live the stress-free days of their youth with a curriculum based on daycare activities but designed with adults in mind.
Michelle Joni, the preschool's founder and head teacher, wrote on her website that activities include:
- arts and crafts (finger-paint, play dough, glitter glue, YES PLEASE) - show and tell (share your material stories to uncover clues on your spiritual path) - snack time (with themes planned by you!) - music time (with special rockstar guests) - nap time (the best time ever) - lessons and playsheets (learning is FUN!) - buddy system (a BFF to keep you accountable for awesomeness) - games (i mean, does anyone remember how much fun musical chairs is?) - make believe (your imagination is needed!) - class picture day (dress your 4-year-old best) - a field trip, obviously - All students will be given homework in the form of challenges, prompts, playsheets. Expect to get out of your ordinary routine and leave a trail of ::magic::!
"I realized all the implications of what we learn in preschool," Joni told ABC News. "People come here and get in touch with their inner child. It's magical."
Joni said classes run through the end of March, but there will be another round starting in the fall. She said the students come to her preschool for a variety of reasons.
"One person's here because they want to learn not to be so serious," she said. "Another's here to learn to be more confident."
