Monday: Yoga and More C is for Cobra. D is for Downward Dog. E for Elephant pose! Yoga is about connecting body and mind! We will get our bodies moving while focusing on early academics, including letter and sound recognition. Each week, a different pre-academic skill will be tied into yoga activities designed to strengthen core muscles, enhance motor planning skills, and help children recognize the mind body connection. Through yoga experiences, your child will learn academics as well as relaxation, breathing and mindfulness! Namaste!

Tuesday: Team Steam From the earliest years, children engage with the world in ways that can promote learning related to Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math. Research shows that the earlier we guide and support children's wonder about the world, the more successful they are in all areas of learning. We will experiment with ramps and bridges, design buildings, learn early coding, use art as means for inquiry, and learn to compare, contrast, and identify numerical concepts. Hop on board the "steam" train for a ride filled with learning and wonder.
