Ekata Care for Kids and Teens

Valencia / Santa Clarita DayCare and After School Programs

Our Mission Statement:

To be the leader in children’s holistic and mindfulness education through physical and artistic expression. To initiate the next phase of humankind’s consciousness and empathy within our families, communities, and the world. To be the ultimate exemplar of self-love and universal connection.

Current events have revealed the emotional, physical, and spiritual jeopardy that humankind faces. Let us teach your children critical tools and abilities to help them navigate through today’s issues and become the leaders of tomorrow.

 

Because of current guidelines for social distancing, we have taken measures to ensure your child’s health; one of them being that we will divide the children into groups of ten. Once a group is filled up, registration for that group will close. This means that spots are limited.

 

One of the issues we’re facing is the blended model; we have not been informed of which days students will attend school on campus. Therefore, our parents who wish to enroll their children in our three-day ASP must contact us to sign up under one of two waiting lists according to their child’s school schedule. Once a waiting list is filled up, we will open the group with its respective teacher and aid. The least popular waiting list for three-day ASP will be placed on hold until our five-day ASP and childcare groups are filled or dissolved. In addition, we cannot offer customized scheduling; meaning that these two options of Monday – Wednesday and Wednesday – Friday are the only options available for scheduling. 

Ekata is a certified homeschool provider, please call or email to find out if we are a provider for your homeschooling entity.

Ekata’s After School Program

(ages 5-11)

3-Day Coverage

For children who will be attending school at least two days of the week; We will pick up your child from school and transport them to the academy on the days they have school and the third day will offer a full eight hours of childcare and access to all available classes that day. Your child will be guaranteed two martial arts classes, yoga classes, art classes, storytelling and theatrical improvisation classes a week.

Five Days of Full-time coverage

This is the perfect option for parents who work full-time and need a reliable space for their children to complete their online learning with supervised school sessions AND participate in our enrichment courses. Children in this pathway have access to all of our martial arts, improv, art, yoga, story telling, and dance classes scheduled in our program.

Teens Bridging Program

(ages 12-14)

Previously known as the, “Bridging Program” The Bridging Initiative is the evolved youth program at Ekata; focused on leadership skills, group and individual communication, and self transformation. The world is changing rapidly and it’s easy to lose ourselves in the trends, social movements, and different philosophies. We’re perfectly equipped to teach your young adults the skills they’ll need to grow and stay grounded and intentional.

 

Our Goals

1. Develop a sense of self-love and personal responsibility.

2. The Students will decide on a nonprofit to partner with, set goals for the partnership, and meet those goals throughout the school year.

3. Develop  group communication and public speaking skills through our Junior Toastmasters and Teen Improv programs.

4. Weekly Master Classes
