SPECIAL ACTIVITIES

Millard Children's Academy offers many fun and recreational activities on-site throughout the year. We believe these opportunities allow the children to participate in some extra-curricular activities with their friends during the week, while mom and dad are busy, freeing up more time for families to be together in the evening instead of running around from activity to activity.

We have several reputable, child-based community organizations come on-site to offer monthly or longer-term sessions of fun activities. These programs allow the children to learn more about exercising, tumbling, and dancing, and they give them additional chances to play and have fun with their friends. These activities are optional and are an additional cost.

Dance...Dance...Dance

Dance...Dance...Dance presents "Dancin' in Your Day Care." These dance, jazz, and tumbling sessions provide the children with a chance to express themselves in a variety of ways such as acting, singing, and dancing. Your child will develop a sense of accomplishment as they improve their self-esteem, balance, rhythm, aerobic fitness, and coordination. Most of all, your child will have fun while learning an energetic dance curriculum with their childcare friends!

Dance...Dance...Dance classes meet once per week on Thursdays. There is a monthly fee for this program, which is added directly to your MCA account. You may sign up or withdraw your child at any time. Dance programs for parents are held in December and May at Millard Children's Academy. The dance classes are for children ages 3 to 5 years old.

Stretch-N-Grow®

Stretch-n-Grow® is a children's fitness and nutrition education program. Their classes offer age-appropriate workouts, fun and interactive health lessons, non-competitive activities, introductory sports skills, and nutrition and safety topics. Stretch-n-Grow's strength and flexibility practice makes exercise fun and creates opportunities for kids to learn to exercise and learn to love it!

Stretch-n-Grow classes meet once per week on Wednesdays. There is a monthly fee for this program, which is added directly to your MCA account. You may sign up or withdraw your child at any time. These classes are designed for children from 2 to 5 years old.

Tumble Bus

Tumble Bus is a full-sized school bus that has been transformed into a mobile gym. It has equipment scaled down to meet the physical needs of preschool children. Tumble Bus offers the best motor development and physical fitness program for your child. It gives them the advantage of physical development and builds self-esteem to help give them a confident childhood. In addition to climbing, rolling, hand/eye coordination, and rhythmic exercises, children get a real cardiovascular workout. The Tumble Bus program is fun while it develops concentration, self-discipline, coordination, self-confidence, balance, strength, flexibility, and self-image. Their goal is to encourage each child to achieve their greatest potential by exploring a variety of movements in a safe and positive learning environment.

Tumble Bus offers four sessions per year: three 10-week sessions during the school year and one 8-week session in the summer. Their classes meet once per week on Tuesdays. There is a per-session fee for this program, which is added directly to your MCA account in two installments. These classes are designed for children from approximately 3 to 5 years old.
