- Rhythm and Expression : through music and rhythm, the child learns to listen, to respond, and to control his neuromuscular reactions.
- Swimming : this activity is organised for children from 3-6 years on Wednesday afternoons. The lessons help children to feel at ease in the water, and to learn the basic swimming movements.
- Psychomotricity : children, through play and by the intervention of the psychomotor teacher with the child or the framework set during the session, will live through a series of motor experiences. Not only this, but they will live through relational experiences, allowing them to express their emotions, to control them, and to be conscious of themselves and others.
- Theatre : this activity is organised for children from 6-12 years. The theatre approach enables a child to grow using free expression towards a better understanding of themselves.
