On Thursday mornings during February and March, Sunshine and Starburst children enjoy swim lessons at Boston Sports Club in Waltham. They are off to a great start, with the children working on “Tickle T. Push” and “Slice the Pizza & Spread the Sauce” which teach arm stroke techniques. The ratio of instructors to teachers is advantageous (1:4) as children do not have to wait long for their turn and receive more instruction. The children have been so excited to ride the bus, change in the locker room, and practice their swim strokes in the heated pool.
After swimming, we all gather in a circle to practice stretching exercises and yoga poses. What a great way to relax, as we get ready to return to Magic Garden!
