Children's Center  Children's Center
Did you know that yoga is a regular part of our Early Care and Education program here at the Children's Center?  Once a week our children enjoy a half hour of yoga with Machelle LaHaye CYI.  
Machelle studied Hatha Yoga and graduated from Namaste Institute in 2011. She then continued her studies to become a certified foundations instructor for children's yoga.  
The children love Machelle and even our toddlers do yoga with her!
Now is the time to begin thinking about spring and summer.  Will you be going back to work at a seasonal job this spring?  Come by to talk about setting up a childcare schedule for your little one. Wondering what to do with your kindergartner or first grader this summer?  Brochures for our Scamper Camp program (June 23-August 22) will be out next month.  Call or stop by to get a sneak peek at all the fun that's being planned for this summer!
