The Space

We meet in the Jay House, a Queen Anne style 1888 house owned and operated by the Marion Public Library. 

 

What We Do

Movement

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.

Activities

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).

Cooking

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?”
