Enrichment Activities and Afterschool Care

Our preschool enrichment and extended day care programs provide opportunities for preschoolers to interact with other children, play outside, and learn new skills.

  • P3 Friday Enrichment

    Students in P3 have the option of attending class on Fridays 8:30 -11:30 a.m. in addition to the regular Tuesday through Thursday classes.

    The format for Fridays is similar to the other days with entry activities, circle time, story, play, center time, and, perhaps, time in an enrichment area. All regular P3 staff members are present on Fridays and there is no maximum enrollment.

  • P4 Extended Care

    Our afternoon Extended Day Program for P4 students includes outdoor play, group activities, and individual playtime.

    P4 Enrichment

    The P4 Enrichment program is available for interested families from 11:30 a.m. until 1:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. P4 Enrichment is an opportunity for your child to play, interact, and explore with their friends beyond the regular P4 scheduled day. Included in this two-hour block each day is supervised outdoor play, time for lunch, and an hour of focused enrichment fun. Each day has a different theme and activities.

    Monday - Fine Arts Exploration
    Each we week will explore visual art, drama, music, or creative movement. For example, we might learn about a famous artist then create paintings in a similar style, or we might turn a favorite story into a play. During music and creative movement sessions we will sing, make music, and move—working on coordination, dexterity, balance, and musicality.

    Tuesday - Science Club
    We will encourage curiosity, hone observation skills and learn about the scientific process through fun experiments. Through each experiment we will practice making predictions, performing experiments, recording our observations, drawing conclusions, and making Science connections to everyday life especially through work in our Preschool Garden.

    Wednesday - Movers and Shakers
    During our Wednesday afternoons together, we will explore how our bodies move. Creative Dance for all Ages is a unique, brain-compatible program that uses the elements and principles of dance to help children through a variety of learning processes (perceiving, understanding, doing, creating, and valuing). We also use a program based on Kundalini Yoga that uses stories to teach basic yoga poses, the importance of breathing, and how we can use our breath to calm down.

    Thursday - Game Day
    Come and play with us! Games are not only fun; they can be rich learning opportunities. Games can help kids master new skills and concepts such as number and shape recognition, grouping, and counting; letter recognition and reading; visual perception and color recognition; and eye-hand coordination and manual dexterity. We will participate in games of all types including board games, SmartBoard games, and outdoor games.

    Friday - Book Club
    We will explore in-depth many award-winning children’s picture books through reading, discussion, and dramatic re-enactment. We will then create individual and group stories, books, and poems based on the stories that we explored.
