Books, storytelling, dramatic play and literacy games promote language and literacy skills. Center events and small group projects also exercise literacy skills in a fun, hands-on way.

The Fun Never Stops!

There’s always something fun going on at Doodle Bugs! Children’s minds and bodies stay active with a variety of activities that make the Doodle Day even more interactive. Participation in enrichment activities varies by program.

   
Tae Kwon Do

Tae Kwon Do helps children to develop balance, coordination, confidence and positive feelings and fitness and physical activity.

   
Doodle Dance & Fitness

Dancing teaches free self-expression and nurtures an early love and understanding of music and rhythm. It’s just one of the fun, exciting ways for children to exercise throughout the Doodle Day.

   
Yoga

Yoga helps children develop social skills, focus on the present, and slow down their thoughts, in addition to increased coordination and flexibility. Yoga at an early age encourages self-esteem and acceptance through exercise in a non competitive, fun atmosphere.

Doodle Bugs! provides an interesting, educational and fun recreation program, supervised by qualified adults.

Before/After School Care - Providing the supervision and structure that school agers need and the fun and flexibility they enjoy, Doodle Bugs! is the ideal program for before and after school care. Every afternoon features our innovative Happy Hour program, so creative learning experiences are guaranteed!
