Teaching Mindfulness and Sports Together
Wed, Nov 16 7:56pm

Good evening Children's School Families:

Hope all is well.

If you are looking for an after school program outside of our school please see below.  A 1st grade student from The Children's School attends Mindful Sports  - click on the link for more information - and below is a note from that 1st grade parent about the program and information regarding registration for Winter '23




If you are looking for more outside time for your kid, this is a great, non-competitive option. Lots of options in terms of hours and days. You can pick up your kid from either the indoor space (7th Avenue and 5th Street) or the outdoor spaces at Prospect Park West and 3rd Street or Prospect Park West and 15th Street. For the early nights, they let parents choose to send their kids to an indoor space when it gets dark or the kids can stay outside and use glow in the dark gear and equipment (which my son loves).
