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.

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.
