"Nine-tenths of education is encouragement." -Anatole France
All of the programs below are open to children who attend other schools during the day as well as to our own students. With the exception of the After-Care Program (no. 1 below), registration is based on a September-December and January-May schedule.
This program is available daily from 3pm to 6pm. Children may attend as needed, either occasionally as a drop-in or they may enroll monthly at a discounted rate. Time is spent both indoors and outdoors, weather permitting. Activities are not structured around a curriculum and children play freely, although always in a supervised setting.
2. Enrichment Activities
This program rotates a series of different activities throughout the year. All classes begin at 3pm and last either 45 minutes or 1 hour. Offerings include Yoga, Theater, Soccer, Tennis, Arts & Crafts, Piano, Dance, Opera, and Chess.
3. Language Classes
This program offers daily foreign language options in 2-hour sessions with a short outdoor recess/snack time half-way through. Classes are instructional yet take into account the fact that children have already spent the day in a classroom setting; there is therefore an emphasis on fun activities, songs, stories, and art projects to complement the more formal language instruction. Age groups are based on reading ability, generally 3-5 years old, 5-7 years old, and 8-11 years old. Classes for Middle School and High School students are available based on demand.
Introduction to Spanish is offered on Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 3pm to 5pm
French FLE (for non-native speakers) is offered twice a week, Tuesdays &Thursdays from 3:30pm to 5:30pm
French FLAM (for native speakers) is offered three times a week on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 3:30pm to 5:30pm
Based on demand, more language classes may be scheduled. Students who are new to the school may attend one paid trial class prior to registration.
