Winter Dayz for 4-7*-year-old students

Each day will be centered around a theme and will include a story, craft, games, gym time, and other age-appropriate activities to encourage engaging and interactive learning experiences. This year we will be using a series of books where we will learn about people throughout history that were positive role models and how they impacted the world around them as well as use stories about heroes from the Bible.  A non-sugary snack will be provided.
*Students must be potty-trained to attend this program.
