The children will be building an alligator, octopus, jellyfish, snail, whale and sailboat with LEGOs; recognizing the letters A, J, O, S and W; understanding speed (slow and fast); patterning; comparing more or less; and working on fine motor skills.

The Kids Yoga class for 3–5 year old children will run on Wednesdays from 1:15–2 p.m. starting on April 6. Kids Yoga is a child friendly yoga class designed to help kids build concentration, strength, flexibility, self-control and balance. Children will embark on a calming journey and begin to understand mindfulness and finding contentment in everyday life.

The cost for Bricks 4 Kidz is $50 ($45 for JCC members) while Kids Yoga costs $40 ($32 for JCC members). Spots for these classes are limited and early registration is recommended. Children do not need to be enrolled in the JCC’s Early Childhood Program and JCC membership is not required to take the classes.
