​Our Mission

     Every child is unique and we believe that success and growth come from encouragement and praise. Our teachers focus on building every child’s self esteem and confidence through positive feedback. We nurture their natural strengths. A child see’s the world around them with wonder and awe, we believe in encouraging their natural curiosity.

    The program will begin with the yoga lesson to relax and focus the children, so, that they can concentrate on their art lesson..  

     The yoga lesson will include postures that mimic common animals, breathing exercises, partner poses and yoga activities and games.
