Mind and Body Matters

Nurturing Children and Families

As part of our ongoing commitment to nurture young minds and instill healthy habits, we offer the most current, proven educational and developmental strategies to the children and families we serve. We call our program Mind and Body Matters. It combines four powerful programs designed to educate young minds, encourage parent-child reading time and teach the benefits of nutrition and fitness.

Four Cornerstones of Mind and Body Matters:

Star Curriculum
We chose Star curriculum, because it emphasizes teacher-child interaction. It revolves around a carefully designed learning environment and a PLAN, DO, REVIEW process that strengthens initiative and self-reliance in young people. Teachers and students become active partners in shaping the educational experience. Using research-validated strategies, this approach enhances each child's academic as well as social-emotional, physical and creative foundation.
Just Read
The vision of COA's Just Read Program is that every child learns to read early and well, thereby reaching his or her full potential in school - and life. The program consists of a series of interactive books written by us and illustrated by COA children. Just Read is designed to encourage parents to read to their child in the comfort of their own home - or anywhere for that matter, because our books are compatible with mobile devices and tablets. By spending as little as 15 minutes a day reading to your child, you can help introduce him or her to the outside world.
Nutrition
Our Nutrition initiative is jam-packed with healthy, nutritious ideas from our registered dietitian Jaime Windrow. Ms. Windrow develops nutritious meal plans for our children, writes a weekly blog for parents and provides nutrition consultations as well as healthy cooking tips and recipes.
Fitness
Children at COA exercise their minds every day. We also make sure they exercise their bodies as well. That's because we know physical fitness plays just as important a part in developing happy, healthy children as reading and nutritious meals and snacks do. It's only when we get all these things right, can we change the trajectory of our children's lives.

Its All Connected

These four building blocks support our fundamental belief that parents and educators play a crucial role in helping children develop a love of the written word, healthy eating habits and a positive attitude toward physical fitness.

At COA, we feel it is our role, for that matter our duty, to serve as a resource center for parents. That's why everything we do is designed to enrich the day-to-day lives of our families. And because we believe mind and body matters.
