Ready, steady, and they’re off!
Your child is getting ready to be or is already on the move, which presents a whole new exciting world to them, and you. With classes like art, music, and movement, you help develop your child’s motor skills, while parenting workshops and fitness classes keep you fresh and ready to keep up with the flurry of activity that is now your reality at home.
Art class will expose your child to colors, numbers and letters, sharing and cooperating, grouping items, free thinking and creativity, expressive art techniques and music. Hand painting, coloring and sculpting can help toddlers release pent up energy and reduce acting out. The focus of the class will be on the process of creativity more than the end product, with most classes having something to take home. Parental support and encouragement are important in this time of exploration and discovery. Parents and kids should wear “art clothes” because we will get messy!

Join Tami Webster, a mom of two littles and founder of Roots Meditation NH, for our parents’ Meditation Group. Tami agrees when becoming or being a parent, it is increasingly important and valuable to find even the tiniest moment or way to invest in self-care. One of the simplest and most effective ways to tame the mind and stress is through conscious breathing. When we sit quietly and focus on our breath, a physiological change occurs in our body, then in our mind. This has a grounding effect which enables us to reconnect with ourselves, and in doing so, our roots deepen and grow stronger.
This parents’ meditation group promotes self-care by providing space and a “time out” to reconnect with and discover our true selves.
This group will be held approximately once per month, and free childcare will be provided on site. Advance registration is required. Please firstname.lastname@example.org you will be utilizing childcare, including the age of your child(ren).
Please emailRootsMeditationNH@gmail.comfor more specific info on the content of the group, and visit Roots Meditation NH on Instagram.
