Drama-Rama:  Open to EH and Lunch Bunch 4K & Kindergarten

Some of the sports we will coach include:  football, basketball, tumbling, volleyball, lacrosse, track & field, kickball & more!

In sports class, we establish the building blocks of motor skills and the coordination needed to proceed into the wide world of sports!  We want children to learn how much fun playing sports and staying fit can be!  Attire:  Comfortable clothing and non-slippery shoes for safety.

Little Yoga Sprouts:  Open to 2K, 3K, 4K & Kindergarten

Therease Metivier earned the Children’s Yoga Teacher Certification and began teaching yoga in preschools in the Charleston area three and a half years ago.  Her approach to teaching children yoga is to make it fun, while teaching the three B’s of yoga:  Brain (focus), Body (postures), Breath (relaxation and energizing techniques).  She believes yoga promotes a healthier self-esteem and strengthens the body through movement using music, dance, and props!  Kids Yoga brings a sense of peace, confidence, and joy to all who participate.  Through partner poses and storytelling, her students explore how their bodies move and flow with ease.  She looks forward to doing some fun yoga with your child this year!
