FITNESS AND YOGA

Our fitness program activities help children build stronger bones, increase strength and flexibility, reduce the risk of becoming overweight, lowers blood pressure, and helps children feel more energy and a greater sense of well-being. With the addition of yoga strategies, the children also learn the ability to calm themselves and focus on mindfulness.

MUSIC

This class provides the perfect blend of music, movement, rhythm and dance.  It allows them to experience the joy of music while letting them do what comes naturally - to sing, move and dance, expressing themselves with their bodies and being creative, energetic and physical!

SCIENCE

Activities provide children a world they are eager to manipulate, experiment with, and discover.  Hands-on, minds-on activities build academic foundations, problem solving skills, creativity through science and technology and  logical thinking. The goal is for children to experience and discover on their own, using their senses and learning through exploration.

STORYLAND

Excellent reading habits begin in the early years.  Introducing children to literature in preschool supports kindergarten readiness, promotes early literacy and supports a love of language and reading.

OUTDOOR PLAY

The outdoors has something more to offer than just physical benefits.  Preschoolers learn much through their senses.  Outside, there are many different and wonderful things for them to see, to hear, to smell, and to touch.

GARDENING

We view gardening as a play environment in which children engage in opportunities to learn about the joys of gardening as well as about people who are passionate about the natural world.
