PEEWEE WORK OUT

We are excited to announce that Pee Wee Workout is coming to Daytime Playtime! This ½ hour low-impact aerobics, creative movement program will be taught exclusively at our school. Pee Wee Workout is an exercise program designed exclusively for preschoolers. It will be taught each Friday morning by our very own Mrs. K.. Before arriving at Daytime Playtime, Mrs. K taught Pee Wee Workout for 10 years at preschools in the Haymarket/Gainesville area.
Each Friday, morning from 11-12 pm, your child will enjoy shooting off to the moon as an astronaut, soaring like a bird across the sky or stomping around the jungle like an elephant...all while exercising their body! As well, your child will also enjoy snack and craft time with Mrs. K! Come join the fun and sign up!

LUNCH & LEARN

At Daytime Playtime we offer an extended learning program for children who would like to stay or need to stay past noon. This program is based on a 6 week session that has a different curriculum than the everyday preschool class. Your child will be able to eat lunch from 12:00 to 12:30 pm then afterwards they will learn about a specific topic and create a craft or do an experiment based on the topic taught. We just ask that the parent pack a lunch for their child, which can be handed to their teacher or handed directly to the office. The class goes from 12:00 pm to 1:30 pm.

YOGA FOR KIDS

Why yoga for my preschooler? Yoga classes give children tools to improve body awareness and coordination, attention and focus, self-esteem, stress management and emotional regulation and cooperation with others. Wanna Play Yoga offers a different approach for kids yoga, by focusing on healthy mind, body and character. Yes! Wanna Play Yoga entertains, engages, and teaches children basic yoga asanas (poses). Your instructor is also an educator who understands that learning through play is essential for preschoolers. Classes include stories, vocabulary development through character words, dramatic play, self-calming techniques, fine/gross motor development and sensory integration. Sign up in the office today!

ART FOR KIDS

Fridays at 10:45

Following a Pre-K standards for art, students will understand and apply media, techniques, and processes related to the visual arts. For example, experimenting with a variety of color, textures, and shapes and creating three-dimensional structures and arrangements using concrete materials or manipulatives (e.g., blocks).
Overall, this class will teach children life skills such as developing an informed perception, articulating a vision, learning to solve problems and make decisions, building self-confidence and self-discipline, developing the ability to imagine what might be, and accepting responsibility to complete tasks from start to finish.

"Compelling evidence exists that early arts experience has an impact on all aspects of a child's learning and development."
