The programming that takes place at TBK is designed not only to engage the minds of children, but to actually change their brains as well. We have partnered with various occupational therapists in the area to create a program that involves midline crossing activities as well as some basic methods in building resilience and emotional development.
The activities that take place at TBK range from the typical (homework, reading, and field trips to the public library), as well as the not-so-typical (visits from therapy dogs, local musicians, and a whole string of Marion residents showcasing their gifts and services).
Here’s where things really get fun. Children at TBK begin the afternoon by creating an afterschool snack. Snacks might consist of vanilla yogurt with five different bowls filled with ingredients kids can experiment with. “Do I like cinnamon?” “What happens if I stir in granola?” “What’s the difference between an almond and a walnut?”
