Our Curriculum

For: 3-5 Year old Children

Afternoon Lunch Club Enrichment Classes
Our preschool Enrichment Classes provide children with a lunch period to share with friends, a class with a specialist and time with friends in a classroom setting. Our enrichment program is designed to stimulate the mind and spark the imagination with hands-on, exciting educational activities using familiar centers, play and work areas.

We offer classes in a variety of subject areas. To encourage a child’s curiosity, we will explore new ideas and interesting concepts. We provide opportunities in a social setting for children to broaden their knowledge base and increase their understanding of the world around them.

Opportunities for both individualized learning and large group experiences occur naturally in this multi-age setting. The wide range of activities will nourish self-confidence, concentration, cooperation, and respect for others.

Course Offerings and Weekly Schedule



Pre-K Readiness

We offer a variety of developmentally appropriate learning activities. Our Pre-K readiness class offers a variety of focused activities. We will reinforce concepts and work on developing skills: fine and gross motor, language, and vocabulary. Each class will focus on a theme with quality literature, a coordinated activity that could include: a game, or an art experience. We will develop emerging literacy skills: the alphabet, counting and number recognition from 1-20, and journal writing activities.

We will begin to work on reading readiness skills, small motor and pre-writing skills and early mathematical concepts with our preschoolers!

The children will be provided with a packet each week to promote interest in writing, letters, and numbers. A binder of their work will go home at the end of the year.


Great Indoor Fun and Sports With Coach Chris

Coach Chris is certified in all core sports. The children will be taught the fundamentals of each sport through age-appropriate drills with an emphasis on fun. The program consists of Soccer, T-ball, Baseball, Basketball and movement/agility drills. Each week, he will introduce a different sport with the intent of playing simulated games. The goal each week is to introduce various drills every 5-7 minutes to build CONFIDENCE. Coach Chris will build on the previous week, throughout the program. As a result, you will notice the improvement in your child’s balance, coordination, independence, confidence and agility.

Coach Chris encourages as much participation as possible from the children and as a result the class is a great means for each child to exercise, strengthen their core, improve their eye/hand coordination and develop their arm strength as well. Classes held both indoors and out.


Messy Math

The world is a mathematical place. Math helps make sense of the world in which we live and understand the order and certainty as well as random events and their chances of happening. Everywhere there are angles, shapes, moving objects, patterns to behold, numbers to count and investigations to be undertaken. We will explore size, quantity, symbols, language, measurement, shape, and patterns.

On nice weather days we will use our outdoor space to create and to explore. We will look at nature and math in a challenging and wondrous way. We will provide lots of ideas, suggestions, tools, and activities to help children become mathematical thinkers and problem solvers who are confident and skilled in using and exploring mathematical concepts.


Shake It Off - New

During our Shake it Off enrichment class, the children will enjoy learning and moving together in this interactive dance/movement session.

The class is filled with familiar and new songs, basic dance concepts, and creative play. Movement, dance, and choreography is a great way to help your child meet different developmental milestones. It improves hand/eye coordination, increases sensory awareness, builds social skills, works on their strength, flexibility, muscle development, and motor and rhythmic skills. This class is designed to build young minds’ music and movement foundations and practice listening and cooperation skills.


Science and Nature

Our Nature program we seek to foster an appreciation for and love of nature by inviting children to explore the world around them through hands-on, outdoor, experiential learning. In so doing we hope to inspire the young people of today to become environmentally responsible and conscientious citizens of tomorrow. Children learn in a variety of settings, indoor and out, and spend much of their time behind eyepieces of binoculars, running behind a butterfly net and crawling on their hands and knees with eyes peeled on the ground. Some experiences include painting a “pet rock” building a nest and keeping a nature journal.

Our science program is designed to inspire your child to enter the world of exploration and discovery. Hands-on experiments will comprise the bulk of this part of the program. These experiences will help them to explore, understand, and appreciate the world around them. Explorations in color mixing, “erupting” a volcano, and magnets will be some of the activities. The program will introduce the children to the world that exists just outside their range of vision.
