Children's Jump & Play Classes, Begnins, Nyon - Raison d'Hêtre

Jump & Play Classes

The class opens with free play. Then we start with a song and some fun themed yoga allowing all to relax, all ready for lots of arts and crafts/messy play. We continue with reading, singing and signing.

Reading and singing are well-known to be great for the little ones. Our children are growing up learning many languages here in Vaud. Sign language can bridge all those languages, reduce frustration and lots of fun can be had by all ages. The classes are designed to be active and fun with no two classes the same, and themes changing monthly. The whole family is welcome to this pre-school class.
