At Magothy Cooperative Preschool, we like to bring in a variety of programs to enrich our curriculum. Our Music teacher, Sarah Devlin-Tremble, is a licensed Learning Groove instructor. She teaches our children 30 minutes a week for 10 weeks. Our Music program provides children with the opportunity to learn music in developmentally appropriate ways; supports cognitive, emotional, social and physical development; gives parents enjoyable and significant ways to relate to their children; introduces children to a variety of instruments and music genres; and enhances happiness and well-being within our school community.
Another component of our program is Yoga. Our Yoga instructor Michele Bickley teaches our students 30 minutes a week for 10 weeks. Throughout these sessions children learn fun and imaginative Yoga poses, games, songs and creative movement that allow exercise and learning in a non-competitive environment. Through yoga play and exploration, children increase their strength, focus, flexibility, balance, and mindfulness. Age appropriate activities promote connection with each other, community and self.
