Music, Yoga & Karate at Magic Years 

Music, movement, body awareness, and mindfulness are important elements of a child's development. Magic Years is grateful to have the help of three amazing teachers in these areas. 

Every week the children have music & movement time with Mr. Darren.  Songs are learned, listening skills are polished, and children are able to get up and shake their sillies out. Twice a year, Mr.Darren helps the children put on an amazing performance!

Students look forward to regular yoga with Ms. Laura, practicing poses and the basics of mindfulness. This is a great time for students to begin learning about body awareness and tools to manage stressful feelings.


Every week children meet with Mr. John Mahaney of Gloucester Uechi Karate Academy. Children learn about the basics of karate and character building through age-appropriate activities that focus on teamwork, control, memory and coordination.
