Kent School is pleased to announce some fun, educational workshops for young children to be held on a series of Saturday mornings in January and February. All workshops are for children ages six and under and will run from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. and are free and open to the public. Parents or accompanying adults should plan on staying on campus with their children during the sessions.

The schedule of workshops is as follows:
January 28 – Saturday Scramble: Gymnasium Obstacle Course

On January 28, Physical Education teacher Erin Kent will get kids moving through age-appropriate obstacle courses and exercise activities. The Kent School Gym will be transformed with mats, climbing apparatuses, jumping areas and much more! Kent said, “’The Gym Time Fun” is always a lot of fun and very well attended. The weather this time of year isn’t always conducive to active play. This session provides a great opportunity for children to get moving!”

On February 4, Little School teachers will lead children in arts and crafts projects. “We’ll provide the tools for the children to make their own masterpieces to bring home. There will be a couple of stations so children can choose which materials they would like to work with to make their art,” said Julia Gross, Little School Director. During program breaks the children will have access to activities in the Little School classroom and on the playground.

On February 25, Music teacher, Kate Bennett will lead a “Stories & Songs” session in the Kent School library.
