Children love their animal class names at Jonah's Treehouse. As they graduate to the next class level, they experience the thrill of learning new things and taking on a new movement identity. The class format differs depending on your child's age, but the goal is the same for all: Improve the way kids think, move and relate to each other.
Classes for younger children (our Koalas, Giraffes and Zebras) focus on free climbing and play. Babies and toddlers stay close to adults as they navigate mazes, crawl though tunnels and participate in co-movement classes. Our two-year-old Elephants enjoy more independence and play imaginative games as they develop cooperation skills and master more challenging activities. All classes begin with our beloved "circle time" – a ritual filled with songs, music, poems and other fun stuff children love. We end class with parachute activities and bubbles (always big crowd-pleasers).
45-minute morning classes with a parent or caregiver.
For older children, our movement program is more structured. Classes involve extra interaction with the teacher and between children. Lions work on balance, strength and coordination with rope ladders, trapezes, and low, padded balance beams. In addition to physical challenges, children are encouraged to improvise and use their imaginations to create and work together. All in the name of getting stronger, smarter, faster, and more socially adept.
Independent afternoon "camp" from 1:30 – 4:00pm.
