Tots Learn to Take Turns at Johanis' Karate School, Orangeville

Little Ninjas is a karate readiness program designed for enthusiastic, energetic and active tots aged 3-4. The program encourages sharing and turn-taking within a positive and controlled environment. Quick rotations keep Little Ninjas busy and interactive in order to maintain focus and attention.

- Social/Emotional Skills -

For many preschool children, extracurricular activities are a major source of meaningful relationships and one of the first places they make social connections outside of their immediate family. Building these skills from a young age is incredibly important for lifelong success.

Social Emotional Learning (SEL)

Social Emotional Learning (SEL)  is the process through which children understand and manage emotions, set and achieve positive goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain positive relationships, and make responsible decisions.
Little Ninjas is a great place to start developing these skills. 
 For their own comfort, we ask that Little Ninjas be fully toilet trained before joining us.
