Explore & Grow
We are proud to offer extra enrichment opportunities for the students who are enrolled in our preschool programs. As an academically focused preschool, we have created an environment to stimulate a child’s curiosity and growth. To take learning a step further than the normal classroom experience, we have crafted unique enrichment classes which allow students to be creative and have easy access to fun subjects without adding more stress to caregivers’ already busy schedules.
This year we are offering four options for each of our preschool programs. Because we want our students to have the most enriching experience possible, we keep these group sizes small with limited space available.

GYMNASTICS & FITNESS
Gymnastics with our Little Critters is simply the best! These wiggly kiddos are learning how to move & isolate their body movements and we have the perfect space to explore those big gross motor actions. We have the extreme pleasure to utilize the Athletic Edge’s gymnastics club where there is ample space for our students to run like cheetahs, jump like kangaroos, spin like tops & balance like flamingos. During this class students will gain cognitive strength through cross-body movements, spatial awareness which has been linked to an increased understanding in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics) subjects and above all confidence!
Little Sprouts update to: Explore the wonders of nature in Little Sprouts! Being amongst nature is known to have profound benefits on a child’s development. It can reduce stress, promote mindfulness and even improve attention and mental resilience. If your child is curious about (or constantly collecting) plants, insects or rocks, this may be the perfect enrichment for them! While in this class, your child will enjoy learning about bugs and worms, planting and caring for flowers, and exploring different rocks and minerals. While we can’t always be outside, we can always bring little bits of nature inside to examine, investigate and discover!

Music & Movement
Children love to make noise and that noise with guidance can transform into a thoughtful, expressive outlet. Research has shown that including music in your child’s education can contribute positively to their development. Music has been shown to support communication skills, creativity & imagination and overall brain development. This year, we will be taking a journey through rhythm and movement and we build a strong musical foundation that will serve your child for years to come!

Unplugged coding is an early introduction to the world of computer science, presenting the basic concepts of coding in an engaging and age-appropriate manner. Through interactive games and simple projects, coding will become a tangible, creative process. Students will learn foundational skills in coding like sequencing, conditions, and functions. This class will also foster their creativity and digital literacy all without the need of a computer! Unplugged coding is particularly beneficial for children who enjoy mathematics, demonstrate an ability to follow directions, and show an early interest in technology, as these attributes are important to the problem-solving and logical thinking skills essential in coding.
GYMNASTICS & FITNESS
Gymnastics is an all-around great sport for children to learn at a young age. Gymnastics not only promotes physical health but also cognitive growth by engaging both sides of a child’s brain with cross-body movements that lead to increased writing development and hand-eye coordination. Other benefits of participating in gymnastics include development of core stability, body awareness, flexibility, balance and overall health. In this class students will enjoy swinging like monkeys, jumping like frogs, rolling like hedgehogs and walking like flamingos all while building confidence to help them succeed in everyday life.
