Fall 2021 Enrichment Classes begin the week of August 30!

Register now!

Enrichment Classes are a great way to turbo-charge your child's after school hours. Classes meet approximately 15 weeks, depending on the day of the class. Many programs fill up fast. Don't miss out!

Please note that these classes will be blending cohorts and grades, increasing the risk of exposure and possible quarantine if we have a positive COVID diagnosis. Masks and school day safety protocols will still be observed. 

We are continuing our two-tier pricing system. There is a higher charge for students who are not enrolled in After School Care. This additional charge will give your student access to after school care on the day of their class until it closes: 5:45 p.m. on the South Campus and 6:00 p.m. on the North Campus.

The fine print: Class info is subject to change. Classes do not meet on days that school is not in session, and will not be made up. Classes are not guaranteed to meet all weeks.

    Early childhood students are filled with wonder and creativity. Yoga and mindfulness practices are a magical fit for kids this age. They are like sponges, waiting to soak up every experience through sensory discovery and personal interactions. Young children bring a free-spirited joy that makes them such a great group to learn with.

    This class allows imaginations to soar when fueled with music, storytelling, breath, movement, and relaxation. At any given time, the room can turn into a scene from The Land Before Time as the kids wave their arms like wings, crawl on hands and knees, or assume a down dog-like position. Everyone is laughing, smiling, learning, and playing. This is what Happy Panda Yoga and Mindfulness is all about — it's light-hearted, creative, energetic, and most of all, FUN!

    The children will discover skills that grow with them, instilling lessons for life. These practices supply their inner and outer world with peace, while learning how to calm, focus, and relate to others. We will incorporate fun yoga games that encourage social interaction and communication. Yogis will also learn specific breathing techniques and mindfulness activities that facilitate relaxation and build attention skills required for focused learning.
