FAD PAD Enrichment After School Classes for Summer/Fall 2022
Please join us at the FAD PAD
Please join us at the FAD PAD - for some awesome after-school enrichment classes!

This is a wonderful opportunity for your child to be outside in a beautiful, magical setting, to move their bodies, have some social time and do really fun, creative activities. Each day has a theme and is for K-5th graders with 8 children maximum and 4 minimum. When the students arrive, they will participate in our traditional FAD PAD warm ups, have a snack and free play, and do our themed activities. As always, we do breathing, mindfulness and grounding exercises throughout our time together. We will do all activities outside in my magical backyard- complete with loquat tree to climb, swings, hammock, fruit, herb and vegetable patches. Only if the AQ is poor and if it is pouring rain will we be indoors.
