Windsor hosts a variety of enrichment programs to offer children social, physical, emotional, and cognitive growth experiences. Exposing children to learning and discovery early in life is critical because the brain is developing so rapidly. These experiences promote confidence in their daily lives and encourage children to try new things.
Programs are offered by vendors at an additional cost and by Windsor staff at no cost. Enrichment offerings vary by location.
Music and Movement
Music and movement bring another dimension of beauty into our lives and benefit a child’s development in many ways. They learn to be aware of movement and body positions. They improve balance, coordination, and rhythm. Through music, children refine their listening skills, and take an internal experience and transform it into a shared creative experience.
Indian Folk and Bollywood Dance
Positive early experiences with sports can foster a life-long love for being active. Classes are age-appropriate and focus more on skill development and exploration rather than competition. Children develop social and motor skills, increase attention span, and improve self-confidence. Above all, it’s fun!
Karate (Mary Location only, offsite)
Young children have an amazing capacity to pick up new languages. Our focus is to expose children to the sounds of the language and, most importantly, experience the intense cognitive exercise that goes into learning a new language. On a higher level, language exposure supports children’s multicultural identities, connecting us all and making the world feel like a smaller place.
A meaningful monthly Spanish language theme integrates Spanish into children’s everyday lives. Themes like eating lunch to going to the park make daily routines into fun language adventures.
