Parents: Gift yourself with extra time as you prepare for the Holiday Season! Stress free shopping, baking, cooking, spa time…will be yours when you register your child/children for the NOVEMBER EXTENDED ENRICHMENT SESSIONS! The children will be thrilled to be immersed in these special activities!
We go “Above and Beyond” by providing another month with additional enrichment programs for our students. November is filled with 3-D Art, Pilgrim Chefs, Literature and Yummy food, and Owl Babies! Please don’t miss out!
Your children will have an opportunity to attend up to four different Extended Sessions each week based on a theme. Each full session can be prepaid with your on-line application. (Please see “How to Register” at the end of this letter.) You may also choose a day your child does not attend their regular class.
Our “Extended Sessions” will run Monday thru Thursday from 11:45 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Your child will be escorted to Room 2 for lunch bunch and will remain in that room for their Extended Session. Please pick up your child/children promptly at 2:00 p.m. Sessions can be 2 to 5 weeks long depending on the month.
The Lunch Bunch charge will be included in all sessions. (Please send a lunch including an ice pack with your child.) The children will go to Lunch Bunch first but will continue with Extended Sessions with a lengthened playtime & learning time that includes exploring, story time, songs, and activities.
The head teachers for Extended Sessions are Phoebe Ostergren and Lisa Roncaioli. Lynn Sunshine will assist if the classes are large enough. Excellent programs have been developed filled with enriching and fun activities.
The weeks are organized by themed days that will build on each other for the month. This will give the children a variety of experiences through-out the week, if they choose to attend all the sessions.
During the month of November, there are only two Mondays and two Tuesdays. These sessions offer an opportunity for your child/children to check out this great enrichment time. Please join the fun and register!

Theater Thursdays“Owl Babies”
November 1, 8, 15, & 29
Children will learn introductory concepts of theater through a favorite sweet story of mine, Owl Babies, by Martin Waddell.
