The “Beginnings” Class at Green Vale is a “Mommy & Me” experience. It offers the very young child (9-23 months) the opportunity for exploratory, interactive, and parallel play with their caregiver as well as their peers. Parents and caregivers enjoy connecting with other adults as the children become more comfortable in the classroom and start to experience what school is all about. Our Beginnings class is led by Ginamarie Siciliano. Beginnings is offered Monday-Thursday, from 8:30–10am. Fees are one day per week, $250; two days per week, $500; 3-4 days per week, $750.
We are the experts in children’s fitness. My Gym has developed an extraordinary program to help children 6 weeks through 10 years of age develop physically, cognitively, and emotionally. Programs include: Mommy and Me, Gymnastics, Art, Ballet, Karate, and Preschool Prep. Children have loads of fun and gain strength, balance, coordination, and flexibility while developing social skills, confidence, and self-esteem. Mommy & Me classes include activities designed to work on the developmental goals of each age group through song, dance, movement, beginner games, puppets, imaginative pay, and introductory gymnastics, all with a focus on fun.
Picasso Kidz Mommy and Me classes are taught by NYS-certified art teachers and are appropriate for ages 2-3. Our youngest little artists will explore painting, sculpture, collage, and printmaking with the guidance of both teacher and parent. Classes are one hour long and include, creative play, easel time, story time, and sit down art lessons. All projects in this class focus on the process and experience of art making rather than the finished product.
Young artists (ages 2-3½) have the opportunity to explore the world of art with a parent (caretaker) by their side. Process vs. product type projects will be introduced to the young artist, so they enjoy their creative time. Painting, drawing, printmaking, collage, crafts, and sculpture are the visual arts introduced in this course. The goal of these classes is to familiarize our young artist with different materials to enjoy and explore their creativity, while bonding with their parent.
