Family Entourage on Learning Outside the Classroom
By: Family Entourage
ARTS: BALLET, DANCE & MUSICAL THEATRE
With many arts programs being cut from school, incorporating dance, ballet or even musical theatre into your child's schedule has numerous benefits ranging from physical coordination, grace and posture to mental strength and focus.
We love Scripps Performing Arts Academy because they inspire learning from the inside out, rather than trying to motivate students from the outside in. Utilizing age appropriate costumes and choreography, they produce beautiful and meaningful dance and musical theatre productions in lieu of dance competitions and recitals.
We've seen our kids creative thinking, confidence and musicality all grow through their time spent at ballet and musical theatre. It's no wonder so many athletes take ballet as a building block to pro football or tennis. Scripps Performing Arts Academy has two locations in San Diego — Carmel Valley and Scripps Ranch — and both spots have classes for children through adults.
SWIMMING: SKILLS & SAFETY
Living in a coastal city, swimming is foundational for both skill and safety. Swim lessons can not only help your child when it comes to water safety, but it also opens up the doors to so many other activities and sports from surfing to kayaking, crew to swim team. We love Noonan Family Swim.
With four locations throughout San Diego, Noonan has a variety of programs to suit your family's needs. They have a splash babies program, where infants/toddlers can learn water safety and adjust to the water. As children get older, they can learn all of the different techniques to excel in freestyle, backstroke and more. By establishing a weekly lesson, your child will see progress and build confidence throughout the entire year. One of the things that we love about Noonan is how they have so many great instructors. Their team matches your child based on their ability as well as finding an instructor that will be a good fit.
SCIENCE: CURIOSITY & HOW THINGS WORK
Make it all hands-on! From conducting your own experiments to cool reactions, learning the scientific process and the fundamentals of chemistry, learning can be so much fun (and a little messy at times). Macy's has several trusted brands from Discovery and #MINDBLOWN to National Geographic and more where you can even make the weather forecast call for fun by creating a flurry of lifelike snow instantly! Make realistic snow anywhere with Discovery #MINDBLOWN build-a-blizzard snow-making experiment kit.
