For 3-5 Year Olds: Come inside with Johnny (“Mr. C”) Cuomo and warm up by singing, dancing, creating and moving. Program will include music, stories, creativity and movement activities geared toward children of all abilities, along with their caregivers. Johnny is local teacher, musician and naturalist who specializes in programming for children in early childhood through young adulthood. This interactive, interdisciplinary hour and half will put the fun into your February break! Click on the flyer below for more information.

For 6-9 Year Olds: Connect your kids to nature with three fun-filled days of learning about the wilderness from the comfort of WMHO’s state of art Educational and Cultural Center. Children will be immersed in hands on activities including how Native Americans lived as settlers on Long Island. They will also learn wilderness survival, how to use bow and arrows, how to make tools and toys of native children and how to string jewelry! Click on the flyer below for more information.
