Mondays – Art Stories Program

Art Stories combines literacy and art in a fun and engaging way.  Each class we will read a new group story and have a creative discussion about the book.  Each student will create art based on the book we read and explore other forms sensory learning and experimentation together.   This combination of reading and creating deepens our understanding of the story, practices our reading skills, improve our concentration and focus, helps us learn about the world around us in new and creative ways, spurs Imagination and increases vocabulary and communication with our ideas through art.

Tuesdays – Music & Drama Program

Children will sing, dance and move in our very popular Glee Program.  With performance and movement, children develop spatial awareness, become less clumsy and pay more attention to others sharing their space.  And through singing, we use our voice and other instruments to express feelings and learn pattern, pulse, rhyme and structure.  Using this combination of singing and performance, we lead and encourage self-expression and story-telling in our young superstars.

The Glee repertoire will be selected from a diverse variety of genres such as pop, musical theatre, blues, folk, traditional and more. Children will create their own repertoire as well as begin composing a performance as a group. It is truly gleeful to see our young students develop social skills, make friends, bond, express emotion and gain confidence.

Wednesdays –Physical Fitness Acro Program

*Offered and run by CareerFit Mom

A fantastic team-based fitness program encouraging children to inspire each-other on.  Our program includes Acro gymnastic floor techniques, yoga and play movement.  We’ll develop skills in our growing “big kid” bodies as we learn to stretch over backwards in a bridge, crab walk, handstands, balance on balance beams, and climb over special challenging obstacles.   Using our team building Parachute, Stretchy band and Octoband our group activity comes together and we get our kids moving!

Thursdays – Creative Movement & Dance skills

This weekly class is high-energy fun as we enjoy the world of Dance and Movement.  We explore the most popular old school hip-hop dance styles, modern jazz routines, group routines and free expression moves. Dancing is a great physical activity and can increase your child’s flexibility, range of motion, physical strength and stamina, with the added bonus of channeling the seemingly boundless energy of young children!

Dance is also a confidence builder and in every class we’ll work on the character development that goes with being a live performer on stage, and have fun adding humour and bravado to the ultimate routine.

Fridays – PlayFit Kids

*Offered and run by CareerFit Mom

Build confidence through fitness, drama, art, and creative play. Our programming will keep your kids having fun and staying active while also:
