We are very fortunate to have an ongoing collaboration with UNCW’s School of Health and Sciences. Our students travel to UNCW one day a week to receive one-on-one swimming instruction! We are also working on creating a yoga and meditation program for next school year. In addition, we are very fortunate to be located on Wilmington’s Cross-City Trail and go for Nature Walks daily!
Nutrition is a core value of the founders of OASIS NC and we feel that it is an important life skill for all of our students to learn. We encourage a diet of healthy, whole foods instead of packaged, processed foods by creating enthusiasm for eating healthy through a hands-on approach! Throughout the school year, students will:
- Plant a vegetable garden
- Learn about specific benefits of a wide variety of healthy, whole foods
- Learn to make 3-4 healthy recipes each quarter
- Track their weekly “Daily Dozen” intake
