The tools for insight and growth will be storytelling, creative movement, acting, mindfulness meditation, play, drawing, painting, singing, games, puzzling, and bookmaking. The workshop goals include: 1) Helping your child find and protect her/his strengths which often lie outside current testing measures in standard school subjects; 2) Helping your child manage big feelings rather than bury or express inappropriately; 3) Helping your child preserve kindness and acceptance in an often binary social order--those deemed acceptable and those who are not; 4) Helping your child learn basics of healthy communication and healthy boundaries necessary for rewarding relationships. The workshops are from 9:00 am-12:00 noon; early and late care are available for an additional fee. Simultaneous 90-minute Parent Workshops are also available on Wednesdays, 9:00 to 10:30am, for an additional fee. Siblings get a 10% discount.

At Houston Scuba Academy, we believe that everyone should learn how to swim. We offer courses in summer months, in two-week sessions. Group classes begin with an easy introduction to the water, with your child putting his or her face in the water and blowing bubbles with other children in their age range. As the children become more comfortable in the water, we introduce additional skills. Each child is encouraged to continue learning under the guidance of their instructor at their own pace. Our classes are fun, but above all, they are SAFE! We invite you to visit us, see our facilities and discuss your child's needs
