School-Age Enrichment: Our Adventure Stars (5 to 11 years)

Our Adventure Stars have begun their journey into elementary education.  They are independent learners whose learning doesn’t stop when school ends.  Our school-age enrichment program extends your child’s learning through fun, creative, and interactive afterschool activities.  Our expansive specialty classrooms allow for enrichment in art, science, computer, home economics, media and drama. Planned daily activities provide enhanced knowledge and understanding through a variety of hands-on projects that your Adventure Star will participate in as they rotate between the different classrooms.   In addition both you and your child can rest easy knowing that our highly experienced counselors are here to assist children with completing their homework or any other necessary academic school requirements.

Our Adventure Stars’ Summer Odyssey

Our Adventure Stars are in for a summer of fun and adventure! Our goal is to provide your school-age child with a variety of age appropriate activities that are based on weekly themes. Swimming, fieldtrips, guest speakers, games, movies and sports are only a few of the many exciting events planned for the summer months. While we keep it a secret from the kids, our Adventure Star parents can be assured that our summer activities provide multiple opportunities to reinforce academic skills, and learning through reading, computer, creative writing, art, science, math, free play and board games. Your child’s summer days will be filled with exploration that is structured to stimulate both creative and critical thinking by participating in a variety of exciting projects, experiments and activities. Monthly calendar noting the dates and times of all field trips and in-center events.

We love parent chaperones! You are welcome to accompany your child on any of the fieldtrips!
