(Tahlequah, Oklahoma) – Registration is open for Northeastern State University’s College of Education summer youth academies.

Little Academy for 2-3 years old will be offered this summer at both the Tahlequah and Broken Arrow campuses. The academy helps children in this age group engage in socialization. Each session includes singing, dancing, hands-on activities and learning to play with peers.

“The IDEA Academies are award winning, cutting edge youth academies taught by master teachers,” Jerreth McLaughlin, professional development program coordinator, said. “These academies are very popular with kids because they have a lot of fun and gain inspiration.
