Little Scientists – Enrichment Class
Young children are constantly trying to figure out the world around them, just like scientists! In this class, students will be able to experience their world and community in-depth as they unleash their curiosity and enthusiasm on a variety of new, exciting explorations. The students will delve into new subject matter each month. Through play, games, literature, sensory, art, and experimentation, the children will master the art of inquiry as they explore water, archaeology, art, baking, farms, physics, and engineering. Working together to discover what means to be a community helper, Little Scientists is available as a year-long adventure or as an add-on during the months that might pique your child’s interest. Get ready for a stimulating learning journey with Little Scientists! This class is designed for students in the Threes, Fours and Pre-K programs. Children can sign up for the whole year or drop in during the months that pique their interest (space permitting).
Creative Kids – Enrichment Class
Creative Kids encourages students to explore their individual creativity through art, literature, sensory, cooking, and musical activities. Each month will focus on a different theme developed from our author study. We will explore books and use an author’s style to influence our creative learning. The children will develop their imagination and expand their curiosity through a variety of art projects and creations. With a wide range of art mediums, the children will utilize different tools (i.e. sponges, vegetables, their fingers and feet…) to create works of art. Students will explore their senses with a spectrum of sensory activities, manipulatives, and building toys. Cooking projects will allow children to create snacks, practice social skills with their friends, and develop their emerging literacy skills as they sequence recipe steps. Musical activities include songs, finger plays, and dances, which encourages the children to have fun while expressing themselves through music! This class also offers dramatic play (i.e., dress-up, bakery, post office, vet clinic, etc.) story time, and outdoor exploration, as well. Come join us for a fun afternoon with Creative Kids! This class is open to all students. Come join us for a fun afternoon with Creative Kids!
