Classes to complement and enrich children through the preschool years. And unlike preschool, parents and caregivers finally get to see their preschoolers in action!
Yoga & Cooking
(18mo - 5 years)
Lindsey uses play, movement, music and stories to bring children into the world of yoga. Children will use their imaginations to roar like lions and hop like frogs. The young yogis will learn breath work and movements to help them connect to their own growing bodies and they will be encouraged to explore and try new things. We know that toddlers have a hard time sitting still. That's why this class is full of movement! We'll jump and dance and have a blast!

In this hour class, children ages 2 to 5 will be working with a grown-up helper to make real-food based, delicious recipes such as Rainbow Pasta Salad and Blueberry Pie Smoothies.

“If a child is to keep alive his inborn sense of wonder, he needs the companionship of at least one adult who can share it, rediscovering with him the joy, excitement, and mystery of the world we live in.”
From frogs to fireflies and petals to pine cones, join your preschooler for a fun, safe exploration of the natural world. Each week, we’ll explore a different seasonal nature topic through outdoor exploration, music, puppetry, stories and more in the Lee Mansion’s beautiful gardens.
For ages 2-5

Fireflies (1.5-3.5yrs) is our Preschool-aged Child Development class. At this age, our older toddlers are perfecting how to take direction and we are preparing them for preschool by learning classroom expectations and behavior. They are much more independent as they engage in our activities and parents have even more opportunity to connect with each other as their children play together.
Fall 2018: Tuesdays at 9:30
Jitterbugs (1-3+yrs) is our mixed-age Child Development class, wherein our Preschoolers can practice the skills mentioned above as well as learning self control, how to control their bodies, empathy, kindness and sharing by playing with and even teaching younger toddlers.
