Enrichment Classes

Enrichment classes are an opportunity for children to spend more time investigating a particular subject. Fall, winter and spring sessions are offered each year; each session is approximately 10 weeks long.

Childswork will offer the following Enrichment Programs during the Winter term:

Gardening/Nature Exploration
Mondays 1:00 - 3:00 pm

Gardening and nature exploration will provide exciting hands on learning about where and how food and plants exist in our environments. Students will have opportunities to look closely, make observations and actively engage with nature through a variety of creative mediums in our school gardens and with their very own plants.

Cooking Exploration
Mondays 1:00 - 3:00 pm

Cooking Exploration will provide an opportunity for children to build a foundation of basic cooking and food preparation, terms and skills. Students will gain an understanding and appreciation for making snacks, meals and creative sensory projects through hands on curriculum.

Art Enrichment
Tuesdays 1:00 - 3:00 pm

Art Enrichment will provide an opportunity for children to explore a variety of art media and techniques through provocations and deeper investigations. Children will practice with 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional materials and hold an Art Show at the end of the term.

Drama Enrichment
Tuesdays 1:00 - 3:00 pm

Drama Enrichment will provide children with the chance to explore their everyday dramatic-play universe in an exciting way; by creating (and learning to develop week by week) original characters and original stories for the characters to live in. Children will also explore what makes compelling stories compelling (and how to do it themselves), through literacy-building activities and games.

Exploring the Arts
Wednesdays 9:00 - 12:00 pm

A morning exploration of the creative arts. Limited to a maximum of 10 students.

Fun & Fitness
Wednesdays 1:00 - 3:00 pm

Spanish Exploration
Thursdays 1:00-3:00 pm

Spanish Exploration will provide an opportunity for students to build a foundation of basic Spanish language comprehension and speaking and to build an understanding of cultural diversity within a curriculum that explores various Spanish-speaking cultures.

Yoga Enrichment
Thursdays 1:00 - 3:00 pm

Yoga for Fun will provide an opportunity for children (and teachers!) to engage their bodies and minds through the art of storytelling. We will learn 15 different yoga poses and practice applying our kind hearts, kind words and kind thoughts as we move together.

STEM
Fridays 1:00 - 3:00 pm

In STEM students will explore the amazing world of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. With explorations of circuits, gears, Rube Goldberg designs, and much more, this class is sure to a hit!
