Our Busy Hands program covers what we think of as inner and outer work. Through a variety of learning modes and content areas, we offer children a chance to keep head, heart, and hands busy. Specialists in the greater community are often brought in to share their unique talents. Sample areas of guided study include: painting, social skills, carving, cooperative games, music, yoga, martial arts, sewing, cooking, conflict resolution, weaving, pottery, and wood working. Busy Hands subjects are generally taught in 8 week blocks. Each day children enjoy classes in two different content areas. For example, one day might consist of wood working and painting while another includes conflict resolution and martial arts. In addition to guided study, Busy Hands offers a 1.5 hour-long social lunch block and nature free play.
