COA Mind and Body Matters

Nurturing Children and Families

As part of our ongoing commitment in nurturing young minds and instilling healthy habits, we offer the most current 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. Working in conjunction, this platform supports the fundamental belief that parents and educators play a crucial role in helping children develop a passion for education and the written word, nutritional eating habits and a healthy respect for physical fitness. Our program is supported with our blog for easy integration into home life.

Four Cornerstones of Mind and Body Matters:

Star Curriculum
We chose The 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.

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.
