NCCP offers several enrichment programs that are incorporated into the school day for all our preschoolers.
NCCP has created a wonderful preschool yoga program for our students! Yoga has many benefits for young children! When adapted and modified for their particular gross motor capabilities, yoga develops body awareness, balance, listening skills, cooperation and powers of observation.
Yoga can also help children control and regulate their body as well as become aware of their breathing. Additionally, yoga is good exercise for the body! It works the muscles and stretches your limbs and unlike other physical activities that require rough and tumble interaction, yoga is relatively safe. In our fast paced world, it’s nice to take the time to quiet the mind!
