Fun for Fours & Fives

Is your preschooler ready for broader horizons? Fun for Fours & Fives is designed to move preschoolers beyond storytime and introduce them to the social and behavioral requirements of kindergarten through a class-like setting and a variety of fun, group-based activities. Sessions include Music & Movement with ECMS, Yoga with Rebecca, and Get STEAMED!

January 3: Get STEAMED! features activities using science, technology, engineering, art, or math. Do you want to build a snowman?  How about a snow penguin?? Artist Jillian will lead the children in a winter-y art project. Children will use their imaginations and a variety of materials, like card stock, ribbon, glue, glitter, sequins, yarn, and googly eyes, to create one-of-a-kind penguins in the snow! Here's more info on Jillian:

January 10 & 24: Yoga with Rebecca is a fun, interactive class in which children will explore yoga postures in a playful, imaginative way with stories and music woven throughout. Yoga helps young children to build self-confidence, body awareness, and focus.

January 17: Get STEAMED! features activities using science, technology, engineering, art, or math. Our January GET STEAMED! programs feature art and science. Learn to think like a scientist! Kids will explore the scientific method through stories and a hands-on water experiment. Preschoolers can make hypotheses and observations about what will happen to water-based food coloring when dropped through oil as they each make their own “ocean in a bottle.”

January 31: Music & Movement with ECMS is a parent and child music and motion class using the Musikgarten curriculum. Classes include activities such as singing, dancing, instrument play, and much more. Instructors are affiliated with the Early Childhood Music School of Williamsburg.

Children must be 4 or 5 years old on the day of the program, and must be accompanied by a caregiver.  Siblings who do not meet the age requirement may not attend. Registration will not be required, but class size is limited to 20 children, plus their adult caregivers (40 total participants.) Free tickets will be available at the Youth Services Reference Desk one hour prior to the start of each program. Tickets will be given on a first-come, first-served basis. Participants must be present in order to receive tickets.
