Two Bay institutions team up for pre-schoolers

Now enrolling for the 2014-15 school year, the Mini Arts & Nature Academy (MANA) is an enriching and fun alternative for pre-schoolers, where parents can chose courses "a la carte" that are best suited to their children's personality and schedules.

MANA is another partnership between BAYarts and Lake Erie Nature & Science Center, two Bay Village institutions known for their quality education programs. In response to the growing demand for preschool-aged programming, they joined resources to develop this program that focuses on learning through play-based, multi-sensory, hands-on activities. Parents have the options of taking courses at BAYarts, the Nature Center or both; customizing their 2-5 day program.

Registration takes place in person at BAYarts on Fridays between 9:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. or by appointment. Parents are encouraged to schedule a tour of the facilities, meet the staff and learn more about how your child can benefit from this enriching program. More information is available at both organizations, registration for both is at BAYarts. To set up your appointment, contact Julie Cikra, BAYarts registrar at 440-871-6543 or
