extended enrichment sessions/above and beyond!


November 4-21, 2019
11:45-2:00 Monday - Thursday

We have loved watching our little ones engage and connect through fun, enriching activities. They’ve been having so much fun!   
If your child hasn’t participated in our Extended classes, November is a SHORT month. It would be a great time to sign them up for our Extended Enrichment Classes. 

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 Enrichment 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 is 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 Enrichment Sessions are Phoebe Ostergren and Lisa Roncaioli on Wednesdays. Samantha Griffin will be the assistant teacher. 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, we are offering two different art classes on Wednesday and Thursday.

Animal Monday
Busy Animals in Autumn

November 4 and 18   

Summer’s warm days are gone. The air is cool. Autumn has come! Children are wearing sweaters, jackets and occasionally mittens! We turn on the heat in our homes, turns on lights because of increased darkness and add blankets to our beds for a cozy night sleep. That’s what people do but what do the animals do? Join us as we learn about animal preparation for winter. We’ll also be making bird feeders to help our backyard friends prepare for winter.   

Tasty Tuesdays

Cooking with Corn   

November 12 and 19

The Native American’s taught the Pilgrims how to plant corn. With that in mind, corn seems the perfect cooking ingredient for this month! There is so much you can do with corn; sweet, salty, savory, spicy! Join this two-week cooking class as we make two yummy corn treats. As always little “chefs” will be given opportunities to participate in fun, developmentally appropriate cooking experiences. “14” is the maximum number of students for this class. It fills up quickly. So, don’t delay!    

Exploration Wednesday    

Native American Life 

November 6,13 and 20   

Come sail to America and explore the Native American culture through art, music and stories.  We'll make paint from berries, pinch pots from air dry clay and paint with corn on the cob.  Your child will come to appreciate the lives of these great people who helped us survive the harsh land and shared in the first Thanksgiving.   

Expressive Thursdays—CLOSED

Autumn Art   

November 7, 14 and 21   

Autumn is so full of color!  We get to see God’s handiwork right before our very own eyes as we watch the leaves change from green to yellow or red or orange or brown. This month we’ll be making some colorful, take-home pieces of fall artwork to bring the beauty of fall right into your homes! So, join the fun! You won’t want to miss it!
