Enrichment Afternoons

We have developed an afternoon curriculum to enrich 2 – 5 year-old preschoolers’ learning experiences. We offer a number of unique and challenging afternoon activities that consolidate and develop math, language arts, science, and the arts. Our experienced preschool teachers teach all classes. In the enrichment afternoon program we have children from our morning preschool, as well as from other local preschools.

Monday- ABC…123
Children will explore letters and number through singing, movement, and activities.  We will use hands-on activities to teach number concepts and the alphabet.

Tuesday- Creative Cooking
Get your mixing spoon ready!  Every Tuesday the children will measure and mix as they create new concoctions.  With their recipe in hand we will read and follow step by step directions.  Fine motor, scientific discovery and basic math skills are developed.

Wednesday- Little Scientist
Children will discover the wonderful world God has given to us.  Hands-on science activities provide children with opportunities to explore everything from bubbles and color mixing, to shadows and light.  Nature investigations are also offered as part of the program.

 An Italian treat…  Delizioso!

Thursday- Exploring the Arts
Visual art, music and/or drama activities extend literature-based learning. Many types of materials are used for art activities and drama, providing rich experiences for creativity.

Friday- Fly-Away 
Children will learn and experience places around our world. Adventures including cultural celebrations, literature, art, music and food will be explored.

M/W or T/Th  PRE-K+
Pre-K+ is an enrichment program designed to compliment a child’s preschool program. Its focus is to develop a 4-year-old’s emerging knowledge of letters and numbers through a hands-on curriculum using games, science experiences, literature, computers and physical education. Children should be 4 by September 1st.
