This is our fun-filled course that explores slowing down and finding calm through the use of all of our senses. Each day explores a different sense through a unique set of activities. Children will learn to calm their bodies and their minds, extending their abilities to concentrate and focus. Traditional mindfulness techniques and some powerful but fun neuroscience in a child-friendly manner are core elements. Children will have the opportunity to develop a sense of their own stressors in life and expand their toolkit for managing these. This is a great way to be prepared for academic engagement and to expand their knowledge and skill-set. Children will be exposed to natural items to touch, smell and taste during this course, please advise of any allergies or intolerances in advance.

Summer Dates Coming Soon!
Navigating relationships in school and life can be tough when we are young and sometimes we need to a boost to support this naturally developing process. This course is designed to support children’s emotional development and communication skills through fun games and exciting activities. By the end of the course your child(ren) will have some great new action plans for making connections with their peers and some polished-up confidence for any occasion.
Discovering our imagination through the modality of play is as natural as breathing for children. Some children have difficulties expressing themselves verbally or with the formal academic process of written communications. Working out stories through play in the sandtray can be an easy way to kick-start the pre-literary minds while having fun at the same time. Helping children learn to tell their stories and express themselves empowers them for school and for their future. We will develop a full story over the course of the weeks and save in a book to take home.
