As the afterschool program has expanded, first with 200 children at PS 9 fifteen years ago to over 900 children at PS 9, 166, and 84 today, we’ve seen the need for additional space “off site” where we would be able to program activities during times when the school spaces are not available. To this end, we’ve added “88th Street” to the program and we’d welcome your suggestions on how best to utilize it to serve the community!

Bigs and Littles Arts and Athletics enrichment classes from ages 6 months to 4 years old during the morning! As our program continues to grow we thought this would be the perfect way to give back to the community for all their unconditional support. Not only are these classes fun and exciting but participating in enrichment classes benefit your child’s emotional, social, and physical growth while forming and strengthening an everlasting bond with your child.

Yoga: Bigs and Littles Yoga is a playgroup setting full of itsy-bitsy poses, movement games, songs, story-telling, and breathing, along with lots of laughter and joy! The class will give them a chance to learn about their bodies, stimulate their senses, and have fun exploring creative poses with repetition in songs and games. 

Cut and Paste: In our art classes, kids will explore colors, shapes, and texture while developing their fine motor skills and expanding their creativity. They will be exposed to unique and fun art and create their own masterpieces. 

Experimenting with Foods: Kids prepare delicious, healthy, seasonally inspired dishes in this hands-on, culinary arts immersion class. Kids explore culture and cuisines by measuring, and mixing ingredients! Part art class by colors and shapes, part math class by measurement, part delicious snacks which you will enjoy eating, your kids will have a greater appreciation for making food and tasting something new.

Bigs and Littles Music and Language Class:  Let’s wiggle together; our integration of music into our language classes targets the social, emotional, and physical development of your child. Our music classes for kids offer an experience that is filled with interactive musical activities, drumming, dancing, foreign language, instrument play, puppets, dramatic play, and music & movement. Scientific research shows that learning a foreign language comes naturally for children when they start at an early age. Children naturally absorb their new language through music, visual prompts, and teacher-child interaction. We currently offer Spanish, Mandarin, and French language classes.

Music and Storytime: Children will explore one book every week. Our classes expose children to age appropriate literature which comes to life through hands-on art, music, poetry and movement activities related to the book. Early literacy skills will be developed by reading books written by both new and familiar authors.  

Let’s Wiggle!: Come on and get moving with us! S-T-R-E-T-C-H, WIGGLE, and MOVE! Get your body moving through movement, music, and yoga. Our games and creative play are designed to strengthen the core muscles, balance, coordination, and motor planning skills.

Open Play: In open play, children will have the opportunity to explore and learn through socialization and free play. Bigs and Little swill have the chance to meet, play, and have fun!
