Since starting GAALS, and subsequently PAALS, we have worked with thousands of children around Long Island (and beyond) to enhance their physical, social and emotional well-being. From each experience we learn and grow, not only from the children, but also through conversations we initiate with their parents, teachers, coaches and therapists. Through these experiences we walk away with tools and strategies that help us to continually customize interactive, engaging curriculum for teachers, coaches and counselors.
GAALS & PAALS shares these best practices so leaders can more meaningfully interact with children in ways that improve relationships among the group, provide each child with what they need to flourish, boost and boost confidence and character. From how to get children moving their bodies in a classroom setting (and thus their brains) to nurturing children’s social and emotional development, we customize a program that meets your specific needs.
