The first enrichment program is held each Tuesdays for our currently enrolled three’s students. Since they will be entering into the four’s program the following year, they are offered the opportunity to stay for an additional hour of programming and to bring their lunch to enjoy with their classmates and teachers. This 9-10 week session helps to prepare the children for a typical day in the next year’s four year old program.
The second enrichment program is offered to students currently enrolled in our four’s program. Enrolled students attend class from 12:30 -3:00 on Thursday afternoons, exploring a curriculum on Community. We start by mapping out our homes floor plan, and build onto that concept by expanding it to out street, neighborhood, and community at large. Students are fortunate to explore local businesses as well as town & municipal offices in the areas. The curriculum develops a sense of community understanding and lends itself beautifully to a social studies enrichment of the world as a whole. We have found that many of the children are ready to take part in an additional day of school, again preparing them for the following year of a five day kindergarten schedule. Snacks are provided by the school for the fourth day program.
