Music and movement program
Conducted by one of our talented staff, we provide a music and movement program to all our children on a rotation each week to ensure that all children attending on different days gain the exposure to this added program.

The programs blend educational concepts with various forms of movement, dance, and gymnastics. It help develop gross motor skills, movement creativity, fitness, and body awareness.

Each class is taught using lesson plans which incorporate original and traditional age-appropriate music and songs. The programs focus on the total child and eliminate the need to enrol your child in multiple activities.

Fun-Key Yoga – an animated and creative well being program

Fun-Key Yoga is a program designed to develop balance,
strength and co-ordination in a playful environment. Unlike traditional adult yoga, the children at fun-key yoga are animated, noisy and have fun! Our instructors use games, storytelling, music and props to engage children both physically and mentally.A typical day at fun-key yoga includes warm up exercises where children pretend to be balloons, bubbles or perhaps even a washing machine. Yoga poses are incorporated into the theme which changes each week. Research shows that children who do yoga in a playful but structured environment begin to develop better body awareness and the initial tools for better concentration, co-ordination and balance.
