for Peace Pals in Arroyo Grande:



“Peace Pals” is geared for ages 7 thru 11 ~ for locals and visitors!

Children who join our classes are expected to independently follow directions and participate well in a group learning environment. Learn more who this class is ideally suited for here: About Peace Pals.
This class is NOT appropriate for children who are “always on the move”, and struggle with following directions, self-regulation, difficulty sitting, and impulse control in a group learning environment, however, your child may be a great candidate for Personal Coaching before joining a class like Peace Pals to learn these very important skills.


Tuesdays beginning Aug 27 from 4:00pm – 5:00pm

  • Session 1: Aug 27, Sept 3, 10, 17
  • Session 2: Sept 24, Oct 1, 8, 15
  • Session 3: Oct 22, 29, Nov 5, 12
  • Session 4: Nov 19, (no class Nov 26), Dec 3, 10, 17
Our class dates and locations can also be viewed on our Calendar and Facebook Event.
Although there is flexibility for attending this class, those who will gain the most benefit are those who attend regularly.  Research has demonstrated over and over that those who practice these skills will benefit! We’ll be practicing the core competencies of social-emotional intelligence, and the major predictors of overall well-being, success, and happiness in life.

What do we bring?

The following are suggested for your child’s comfort:

  • Yoga mat (we don’t always do yoga but this gives each child their personal space to sit in the circle!)
  • Water bottle
  • Dress comfortably and for movement.

Do parents stay or go?

Parents are welcome to drop-off their child and return at the end of class to sign out. Parents are also welcome to observe quietly.

Staying or going depends on your child and the other children in the class. If your child needs help adjusting you are welcome to sit with him/her with the goal to eventually be independent. Some students do better with adults around, and others do not. If you need help deciding, let me know!
