Extra Curricular Activities

Welcome to our Early Enrichment Program.  It's never to early too expose your child to enrichment opportunities that will enhance your child's learning and development.  Not only will early enrichment classes provide a fun, age-appropriate environment to learn something new, research has shown that there are social benefit learning to interact in these different settings, and these new experiences can often boost confidence, helping young children feel more comfortable trying new things.

Our daily program is offered from 7 am - 6 pm for all students enrolled in full day (does not include the 3 hour only VPK students).  After daily nap time, many of our students are dismissed along with their older Charter School siblings.  For students who are here after 3 pm each school day, our daily program provides outdoor play time, an afternoon snack time (please be sure to include a 2nd daily snack for your child if they are here past 3 pm) and fun learning activities in the classroom. 

Early Enrichment activities are offered each 9 weeks for our 3 and 4 year old students during our afternoon hours.  These optional classes provide your child the opportunity to try a variety of new activities in a fun environment tailored to our little ones.  Please check out the flyer under our Forms and Documents link for more information.

NOTE:  Upon recommendations for the health and safety of all, we will NOT be offering Early Enrichment Activities during our first 8 week session so we can keep our students in their class groups, avoiding mixing classes which would increase exposure risks.  We hope to offer these opportunities again starting in October during the 2nd 9 weeks.  Stay tuned here for updated information.
