Kindermusik classes are for our youngest students who participate with an adult in one of the three levels available for their age group: “Cuddle & Bounce” for newborn to 15 months, “Sing & Play” for 1-2½ -year-olds and “Wiggle & Grow for ages 2-4½. On Wednesday, September 9th free demo classes will be held for each of these courses; please register if you wish to attend.
Adult participation is also required for our Arts & Crafts classes “Hand/Foot Print” for newborn to six year olds, “Sticky Fingers” for ages two to five and “Clay with Me” for ages three to six. We have a number of additional crafts options available for children aged four years and older to attend on their own creating works of art in a variety of mediums.
Pre-schoolers can get physical in “Tumbling Tots” and older children can consider gymnastics and Tae Kwon Do. Musical options are one-on-one piano lessons for ages six and up or group voice lessons for those 15 and older. Babysitters need training too and we offer a class that includes basic skills, first aid, safety and sanitation.
Elmwood provides for a variety of interests: learn to tango, practice T’ai Chi or train your dog. We have adult “drop-in” fitness classes on Tuesdays and Thursdays as well as Friday “Gym Kids” when toddlers and their participating adult can drop-in for some playtime and socialization. Don’t miss out on all we have to offer at the Elmwood Community Center. Our programs are educational, stimulating and most importantly lots of fun!
