NEK Kids on the Move
As of October 2018, NEK Kids on the Move has joined WonderArts to provide programming that emphasizes active movement, outdoor recreation and nutrition to build and develop the foundations for lifelong health and wellbeing.
As our school programs grow we are working to build the capacity, impact, and sustainability of this work. Over the next two years, some of our goals include providing greater access to our programs by bringing opportunities to new schools, expanding curricular offerings at current schools, growing cross-sector partnerships, providing professional development, diversifying funding, and continuing to be a positive support for youth enrichment in rural communities.
As a program of WonderArts, NEK Kids on the Move will continue to work with and support after-school program providers as well as the larger community to provide opportunities for healthy movement, outdoor recreation, and creative expression for children and their families.
NEK Kids on the Move classes will be integrated at all levels of WonderArts youth programming (PreK through High School) to offer fun and accessible classes for youth in our community. Previous classes have included dance and movement, kickboxing, culinary arts and outdoor survival skills.
Spring 2018 classes will include tae kwon do, dance, gymnastics, and outdoor exploration!
