From sports to private music lessons and academic enrichment classes to cooking courses, for an additional fee, your child can choose the subjects that most interest them. Each season, we offer new and exciting enrichment subjects. For information about our fall classes, read on!

Spring subjects will include Yoga for Kids, Superhero LEGOs®, Storytelling through Technology, Chess, Cooking and Sensational Science. All of our enrichment programs and classes are offered in-house, which means no extra driving for you! We’ll take care of escorting the children to and from each activity.
