Kids are naturally drawn to playing outside and there are numerous benefits of outdoor play; it allows them to explore their environment, develop muscle strength and coordination, and gain self-confidence.
Outside is our happy place!
In addition to our curriculum, Legacy Learning offers three opportunities for educational enrichment-
Chapel will be held weekly. This will include music, prayer time, and a devotional that is age appropriate.
Children of all ages are able to enjoy uplifting songs during this time each week!
Storytime is a great way to promote literacy among our children. books, flannel board stories and puppets are used to build upon children's natural enthusiasm for books and reading.
