Through the Pee Wee program, children learn vital life skills, including how to behave in group a setting, take turns, play well with others, listen to directions, use manners and control their bodies through cooking class, science day, crafts, stories and yoga.

The Pee Wee Adventure program runs Sept. 12 through Dec. 21 for children age 2 1/2 to 5 who are potty-trained. Children can register for the entire multi-week session at a discount rate or for individual sessions.

The program features a variety of session options, such as 27 sessions (Tuesday and Thursday) for $550, 14 sessions on Tuesdays for $300 or 13 sessions on Thursdays for $280.

A daily charge of $25 is also available, but same-day registration runs $30.
