About School Enrichment
Schools want the best for their students. But sometimes, your students’ enrichment program needs are at odds with budgetary restraints. It’s hard enough to handle the daily challenges of the academic learning environment. With so many young lives on the line, we know that Hosh Kids can effectively navigate the realities of school-day and afterschool enrichment, balancing cost and quality.
We know enrichment school programs are not only a key element of school success, but at Hosh Kids it is also a financially plausible solution to your schools’ limited resources. Hosh Kids will NOT turn down a school for lack of financial resources. It hasn’t happened and it will not happen. We believe in our nonprofit’s ability to subsidize programs and recruit volunteers when needed. We can ensure that enrichment education remains a right of life, rather than a luxury.
Our teachers undergo a thorough screening and selection process with on-going and on-site professional development throughout the year. And better yet, our Arts on a Budget promise will offer your school the most fair and conscious rates for us to work together as partners putting purpose before profits. Our model blends behavioral psychology and the science of kids yoga on budget-friendly options.
Today Hosh Kids offers school-day and after school programs in:
Over 30 program in NYC

Bring Us To Your School
Hosh Kids is committed to offering children an innovative yoga, dance, and music programming both throughout the school day and after school programs. Our philosophy is simple: we will never turn down a school, parent, or child for lack of ability to pay. We currently offer programs in over 30 locations throughout New York City, and reach over 3000 children every week. The organization is run by a seasoned educator, Henry Cross. Our experienced instructors undergo a thorough screening and selection process with on-going and on-site professional development throughout the year.
We work on every child’s self-expression, confidence, and mastery in their specific enrichment area. Additionally, we will customize our programs to each school’s specifications and needs.
But why would we offer such a wonderful school program? What’s the catch? There must be a catch, right? RIGHT?
Nope, no catch. We’re dedicated to diminishing inequality and offering children programming that can improve their minds, bodies, and lives. We’re situated in an area where about 55% of youths live in poverty. Our mission is supported by a staggering amount of research, including findings that yoga can reduce stress and help manage chronic health problems, and findings that it can improve academic performance.
These kids deserve a chance. And Hosh Kids can give it to them.
We make it possible for every school in the city to afford our programming, because our kids can’t afford to go without.

Our Children 1st teaching model is a researched based approach to enrichment education based on a concrete understanding of praise, motivation, and self-esteem leading to greater collaboration, choice, and play in the learning environment. We blend time-tested behavioral psychology and the science of kids yoga to offer schools budget-friendly options. We incorporate the best practices in school day education and apply them to an enrichment classroom setting. Doug Lemov’s Teach Like a Champion and Rick Lavoie’s The Motivation Breakthrough are key elements of our teaching philosophy. We strive to understand and serve the non-academic aspects of every child through divergent thinking as thoroughly explained by Sir Ken Robinson.
