Our Afterschool Enrichment Program is for children in our 3, 4, and 5-year-old classes on the Weddington Campus. There are a variety of classes offered, and instructors are our own preschool staff team members. 

Registration for the second semester will begin Monday, December 11 and end on Thursday, January 11. A link to register will be sent by email and posted here. We have updated class offerings and descriptions below.

If you register successfully, you will receive an email confirmation from the afterschool coordinator.

Tuesday Classes: Start 1/30-End 4/30 (no class 3/5 or 4/2)

Wednesday Classes: Start 1/31-End 4/24 (no class 4/3)

Thursday Classes: Start 2/1-End 4/25 (no class 4/4)

There will be no makeup days or partial tuition refunds in the event of inclement weather or unplanned closings. If more than one class is missed, we will try to reschedule that class if dates are available.

If your child will NOT be participating in their afterschool class for that day and you plan to pick up in car line, please notify your child’s teacher of that change. You can also reach out to the preschool office. This will help keep our car line flowing smoothly.

Does your child love art and enjoy using their imaginations to create something fun? If this describes your child, then you will for sure want to sign him/her up for The Creative Corner art class. Children will explore painting, collage, and/or drawing each week. This is sure to be a fun time for your little ones. The BEST part is they will be able to bring home their projects and share them with their families.

Does your child like books, songs, and snacks? Then Yummy Tummy is the class for him/her! Each week your child will make a yummy snack that corresponds with that week’s book, song, or Bible verse. We will work on fine motor skills, working independently and in groups as well as sharing and taking turns. **Due to the variety of foods that we will use in this class, we are unable to safely register children with food allergies.

A LOVE of READING will develop as your child is introduced to 10 classic children’s books. Books will come to life as we have fun together with puppets, crafts, songs, dances, finger plays, and fun snacks!
One example would be after reading, “Where the Wild Things Are,” each child will be crowned the “king of the wild things,” make a craft, and have a dance of the “wild things.”

Preschoolers know that running, jumping, skipping, bouncing, and throwing are great fun but did you know there is also magic in these movements? Games and activities that target gross motor skills improve balance and coordination, build fitness and endurance, strengthen attention and social/emotional skills, and build confidence (“I can try new things!”) and resilience (“I can do hard things if I keep trying!”). Each class will consist of a warm-up that has us moving our bodies in new and fun ways, a brief “team talk” in which we learn about specific social-emotional skills that keep our games fun and fair, and end with a game of the week in which we engage in full-on energetic play. Discover the magic in movement as we move and play together!

Every day, your child explores and discovers their world and how things work in new ways. They’re natural-born scientists, and science is all around them! This semester we will be participating in various scientific experiments, such as mixing baking soda and vinegar, making predictions, and observing what happens.
Our goal is to excite the children about the world of science, using innovative educational techniques. Coupling interactive projects, entertaining demonstrations, and simple experiments, the children will experience the thrill of scientific discovery.

Kids in the Kitchen is an exciting, interactive cooking class where your child will have the opportunity to create and test different recipes each week.  We will learn to mix, measure, and pour while learning to eat a “rainbow of colors” to stay healthy.  Your child will be exercising their math, science, and vocabulary skills, as well as learning to share and take turns, all while creating and trying yummy foods.  Each week they will receive a copy of that week’s recipe so that they may show off their cooking skills at home for their families.  **Due to the variety of foods that we will use in this class, we are unable to safely register children with food allergies. **
