Enrichment Classes

We offer enrichments to children 3 years and older between 12:45-1:30 pm as opportunities to spark interest in a variety of engaging activities. An enrichment class meets for 45 minutes at a time.  Past offerings have included Sticky Fingers Cooking, Legos Construction, Soccer, Yoga, Dance, Hebrew, Spanish, Art and Gardening. These enrichments take place in 6-10 week sessions (for the school year) or 4-5 week sessions that meet weekly. Offerings will change from session to session. If your child is registered for a 3:30 or 5:30 pick up, your child will go to enrichment and then return to his/her regular classroom at 1:30. 

Register for Fall 2018/2019 Enrichments Session 2. Session 1 runs October 22 - December 21.

From HERO Sports Kids: “HERO Kids Sports believes every child can succeed in life by developing confidence, motivation and a sense of belonging. All kids are capable and have the ability to be good at sports; they just need a little encouragement to learn. We know from years of experience working with kids that the earlier kids start in sports, the more fun they have and the more they want to learn! HERO Sports Kids will teach kids the fundamentals of sports. Through a unique child-focused introduction to team sports, we provide exceptional education in an inspiring atmosphere. HERO Kids Sports equips kids with the basics of a variety of athletics so that everyone can play as a team.
