  • Beginning Enrichment All Day, grade K in September

    Our Beginning Enrichment program provides young children the opportunity to continue to grow in their own unique cognitive, social and emotional ways.   
    Within the given theme, popular children's books are used to integrate activities in literature, social studies, science, art, storytelling, singing and play.  

    Experiences in beginning reading, early writing, and math development make this program a perfect summer bridge for the child with emergent skills. We attend thoughtfully to this transitional time between preschool and Kindergarten.  

    What’s in a garden and what helps it grow?  We will dig up the answers to these questions and more in Kindergarten. Come along with us as we enjoy the delights of summer’s longer days and warmer evenings in the garden! 

    4 Small group instructional swimming lessons are provided during the afternoons, Mondays through Thursdays, for approximately thirty-minutes. 

    School is closed Wednesday, July 4.

    Out in the Garden discover crickets, ladybugs and lizards at play. Dance through the caterpillar life cycle and watch real butterflies emerge. Dig dirt, plant seeds and watch them grow. Smell, touch and taste all that lives out in the garden.
