Cooking with Children

The “Cooking With Children” class is an opportunity for your child to gain the skills, experience and knowledge they need to meet a very real and basic need. Each child will prepare an individual serving of food for themselves and experience every step of the cooking process.

During the class, the children will expand their math skills as they learn how to measure the required amounts for each ingredient. They will increase their knowledge of science by turning solids into liquids and they will enhance their reading skills during the review of the recipes. The “Cooking With Children” class allows the children to have lots of fun while learning how to prepare delicious dishes.

Preschool Yoga by Georgette Dunn Shropshire

Although yoga has enjoyed popularity with adults for many years, it is only recently that we have come to understand how helpful it can be for children in their formative years. Registered Yoga Teacher, Georgette Dunn Shropshire, has created the “Tiny Yogi Playdate” class as a way to introduce children to yoga by teach them yoga postures in a bright and imaginative way. She uses lots of engaging themes; including stories, singing and dance to educate the kids on the beauty of yoga.

At Springhill Montessori we believe that each child has needs that reach well beyond the physical aspects of their being. We provide yoga sessions for our students to help them practice stillness and silence in ways that emphasize self-control and relaxation. Children’s yoga is a natural and healthy way to exercise, relax, focus, and strengthen the child’s mind, body and spirit connection.

In this weekly class you can expect your child’s yoga adventure to include an educational experience in areas such as; animals, shapes, geography and much more. Georgette also works a lot on balance, breathing, meditation and of course laughing; all of which helps to make this wonderful class a positive experience for your child.
