Gymnastics After School Program
Gymnastics promotes balance, strength, agility, coordination and flexibility. In this preschool gymnastics class children are introduced to gymnastics movements and terminology while having fun. A fun warm up will introduce them to the basics of stretching and gymnastics movements. They will then spend time balancing themselves on the beam, bouncing on the mini-trampoline, learning how to do cartwheels, forward rolls and other physical activities. The class will be taught by Samantha Sevilla, a USAG certified gymnastics instructor (U.S. Association Of Gymnastics) who has been teaching gymnastics for 6 years to children aged 3yr – 11 yr.
Gymnastics After School will take place on Mondays (October 23, 30, November 6, 13, 27 and ending on December 4), from 3:00 to 4:00. The fee is $75.00 per child. Please know that space is limited and registration will close once the program is full. The class will take place in the large motor area in the hallway.

Art After School Program
This program intends to engage its students with art in new and exciting ways! Children will be able to make unique projects every week taking inspiration from their own interests, nature, renowned artists, and so much more. These masterpieces will be created in ways in which children will receive a multi-sensory experience including anything from finger painting to collaging with materials collected outside. These projects will teach children that art is just another form of expression and how to present their thoughts in this abstract way.
