Stretch and Grow
A combination of yoga like stretching and kinesthetics exercise. We follow a really fun yoga program that turns the workout into an engaging story stimulating their imaginations. During the kinesthetics portion we work on building strength and coordination through fun games that also encourages cooperation.
We follow a wonderful curriculum called Once Upon a Ballet. It is age appropriate ballet instruction inspiring children through a magical fairytale themed lesson. We also incorporate other types of creative movement.
We spend a few minutes each morning getting our wiggles out and warming up our bodies by moving around the room to music. This helps the children feel energized as well as prepares them to engage in the activities for the day.
Arts and Crafts
Our hands on and themed lessons are inviting and fun for young students. Arts and crafts gives children time to engage in fine motor skills while engaging in creative and sensory activities .
Singing, dancing, and playing instruments all while learning the basics of music. We incorporate themes and story telling into our lessons, allowing children to use their bodies and voices to share their creativity with their friends in a safe environment.
