We have tailored a wide variety of Enrichment Programs that will enhance and increase your child’s learning experience.

Every day in class our students will learn foreign language, both Spanish and Sign Language, and they will participate in a fun and exciting class called Music and Movement, where they will learn that dancing, music, and exercise is both fun and educational. In addition, all classes will participate in our Healthy Choices Program, which not only teaches the children to eat healthy and exercise, but it helps them identify what is a healthy snack and how it helps our bodies grow up strong. Lastly, our Pre-K exclusive Science program teaches the children countless things about our scientific world. They will learn many “Big Words”, and will dive into and explore everything from Anatomy to Space.

Music & Movement

Our students engage in teacher led fun physical activities daily. These activities are planned to enhance coordination skills, maintain muscle tissue, and to instill healthy habits. The indoor and outdoor activities include singing, dancing, running, jumping, and more.

Sign Language

Our students benefit from our interactive Sign Language curriculum every week. Sign Language involves utilizing the visual-spatial part of your brain. This is the same part of the brain that we use to learn to read. It also helps students with memory retention.

Spanish

Students will enjoy learning Spanish with their teachers weekly. Teachers will introduce beginner level words/phrases through song and play.

Science

Our Science curriculum is offered to all classes daily. Our Pre-Kindergarten kids will enjoy an hour of Science time exploring new avenues such as systems in our body, dinosaurs, colors, and more.
