They are in comics, on television, and online. We hope they are really out there, somewhere…up in the sky or in their hideouts – Superheroes are in the hearts of the POW! staff. Superhero stories are pervasive in American culture and shared across every generation. Many of us have donned the capes at one point, and with a big breath, jumped into the air. These stories serve as modern folktales, as well as good educational foundations to explore physical abilities, creative identity, teamwork, and ethics.
Superhero Training Wheels (18 months to 6 Years)
Unlike our Superhero Training Enrollment for 3.5 to 6 year olds on Sundays, this class is an open enrollment. It is focused on developing the gross motor skills of these early movers and runners. You can purchase a class card for this Thursday 9:30am class. This class is very active and playful. We use the awesome-ness of Superheroes to inspire kids to learn to jump, run, spin, balance and stop their bodies. Our instructors are excellent at tailoring the experience to every child and their favorite hero.
Superhero Training (3.5 to 6 years old)
Our program leads students through different missions and an exploration of what it means to be “Super.” Each class starts with team-building and then grows to include more individualized skills that mimic the powers of famous superheroes. Numerous examples of heroes & heroines in fiction and in real life are used as models to transform our bodies and skills through objectives and games. Our instructors weave in the exploration of settings, physical skills, and team-based problem-solving with each child’s imagination. With a story-telling styled leadership, our instructors inter-lace physical tasks with creative expression. Every enrollment (which last 6-10 weeks) will be different. Each course builds a storyline relevant to the time of year and the age of the group. POW! Kids creates a journey for your child each time they visit. This is an enrollment. You may not use a class card for this Sunday 9:45am- 10:30am program.
