Coming Fall 2017!

Badlands offers weekday classes for infants and toddlers. During our classes children develop their minds and their bodies. They make sense of the world around them through enrichment classes based in movement, mindfulness, music, and play.

Mindful Mountaineers

Join us for a 45-minute gym and enrichment class for 4-7 year olds. Children will develop their minds and bodies through meditation, stations in The Workshop, and obstacle courses through our nature-inspired play space.

In Mindful Mountaineers class, students will:

  • Use sensory and motor learning to develop confidence, problem solving skills, and muscle strength.
  • Strengthen their ability to focus
  • Learn strategies for managing tough emotions
  • Be able to explain the concept of mindfulness and provide examples of the benefits of mindfulness
  • Cultivate awareness of what is going on in their bodies from moment to moment

After two weeks we remember 10% of what we read, 20% of what we hear and 90% of what we do or simulate.

Workshop Classes

In the Workshop, kids learn to be creative by making real-things with real-materials. Several stations in the Workshop allow for true learning experiences. Whether designing a path down the marble wall, creating a parachute for the wind tube, making a remote control car out of LittleBits or learning to hammer nails, children have fun while developing problem-solving and fine motor skills.

More information on classes coming soon!
