July Enrichment Classes for Alpine Center will be offering:
Tumbling Tots- The class goal is to develop the foundations of physical activities such as running, jumping, climbing and balancing. Tumbling Tots aims to increase children's confidence and self- esteem through physical challenge and achievement and to encourage cooperation and interaction with other children.
Sensory Discovery- "Wonder, investigation and discovery" are three words to describe science in young children. Children will be encouraged to see, taste, smell, hear and feel in this exciting discovery class
Creative Art- We will give our "little artists" the opportunity to experiment with many different types of media and encourage them to explore and create. Exploring the world through art comes naturally for most children and learning about art can help them develop cognitive, social and creative skills that go far beyond a box of Crayolas.
Music & Movement- Our student's will be enthusiastic about our music and movement class. Music is a natural and joyous part of childhood. Through music children benefit greatly and are impacted in many area of life, language development, and listening. The children will have an opportunity to experiment with different instruments and learn about rhythm.

Hopefully without silver bells (we're short on them this year) and I think we'll do without the puppy dog tails, but we do have a lot of great helpers! The school agers helped pull weeds and grass, dig holes/pits for the tomato plants, put in the seeds and starts, and water (and, on occasion, drowned) the new garden. The two year olds "helped" weed--too bad they don't know a marigold from a dandilion!
The school agers were great helpers, pulling up weeds and grass, digging holes (more like pits!) for the tomato plants, planting the seeds and starts, and then helping to water (aka drowned) the plants.
