If your child needs support during this atypical school year, our program for kids in grades K-6 is here for you! We partner with local schools to complement the learning they offer with our own robust curriculum for elementary schoolers including project-based STEM learning activities, art, outdoor play, homework support, and more.


We’ve built three key components into our program to take extra-special care of the hearts and minds of every student as we navigate the pandemic:


WARM WELCOME
Kids are social creatures! This long stretch of isolation can stir up big feelings, and kids need dedicated space and help from grown-ups to process. We’ll spend time each day, checking in and building community, trust, and connection with one another. We support a positive, anti-bias classroom culture through student-centered class meetings, social-emotional learning activities, and daily mindfulness practice.

STUDENT CHOICE

Kids love learning, even more, when they can choose what they’re learning about! We’ve all experienced a huge loss of control this year—but in our classrooms, children have choices! Our student-led learning approach allows big kids to make decisions, explore personal interests, and share feedback with their peers. This school year, we’re helping students define their own projects to build resilience through five themes: problem-solving, optimism, empathy, growth mindset, and creativity.


ACADEMIC SUPPORT

Our teachers understand that every family will manage their children’s learning needs in a way that works best for them—and no two families are the same. Flexibility is built into our program, so you can get the support you need when you need it. The program we’re offering at our center is a full day.


To prioritize safety, we use a small-group Pod structure to keep kids with the same group of peers and educators every day. Of course, there’s much more we’re doing to protect our community, and I invite you to learn more about the industry-leading health and safety practices that make our center one of the safest places your child can be.


If you have any questions about our big-kid program, how we’re keeping families safe, or if you’re ready to enroll for the new school year, I’d be happy to help! Just reply to this email or give
me a call.

Day Camp at Ninja Obstacle Academy

School is not going back in person... That means no PE, more screen time, and more kids at home bored.


➡Because of this, we decided to reach out to you today to see if you would have any interest in sending your kiddos to us for a few hours a day to get some exercise and have some fun! AND arts and crafts, and games, etc... LOTS OF FUN!

Essentially a half day camp.

TO BE CLEAR:

  • This is not a tutoring session
  • This is not school work time
  • This is Ninja time where we will help your kids get in great shape, have a LOT of fun - in a safe and clean environment.



Here are a few more things you need to know:

  1. We will only be able to offer this in the morning time from 8:00 am to 11:30 am. We already have classes scheduled each day starting at 12 noon.

  2. We are planning on offering this at $150 for a full week, Monday-Friday. This will be a flat rate.

  3. This is about $100 cheaper than our traditional day camp options in the summer. We are offering this lower to help allow more families to be able to afford it.


If you have any interest, please fill out this brief form below:


https://www.ninjaobstacleacademy.com/day-camp-survey-2020/

Thank you so much and from our family to yours, we wish you peace and health during these troubling times.
