Early Childhood Mornings

Nick Baby

The Conservancy offers two new Early Childhood programs for our littlest Preservers – from infants through 30 months – to introduce the healthful concepts of yoga and the wonders of the natural environment here at the Sands Point Preserve. Parents/Caregivers can enjoy this special time together with their children.


September 25 – December 16 (no class 10/9, 11/6, 11/27)
9:00 – 9:45 am: Infant to 9 months & Parent/Caregiver

Adults are carefully guided through age-appropriate yoga sessions by instructor Nicole Asselta, a registered yoga teacher, who holds a Masters of Social Work from Hunter University and a certificate in Bioethics and Medical Humanities from New York University. She teaches extensively at schools and centers in the region.

September 25 – November 27 (no class 10/9, 11/6)
10:00 – 11:15 am: 18 – 30 months & Parent/Caregiver

Children and their parents/caregivers will discover the natural world around them through guided nature walks, outdoor exploration, and age-appropriate movement exercise.  Each week will feature a different topic as we visit various locations across the Preserve, culminating in an indoor yoga session. Classes are taught by the Conservancy’s Education Manager, Tracy Strianese. She holds a BA in Education and has extensive experience teaching in schools and museums.
