Enrichment Programs

"Kids Can Do" Enrichment Programs

Enrichment programs have been developed with both parents and children in mind.  Children who are enrolled in the Early Childhood Center may participate in the enrichment program.  We offer our parents extended school hours by providing challenging and exciting enrichment classes. Teachers who have a talent or expertise in a specific area have been recruited to provide an age-appropriate hands-on approach to this curriculum.

Enrollment based on first come - first served.

All classes subject to change based on enrollment needs.

Contact the ECC for available openings.
