We now offer 6 different hands-on enrichment programs!
If our kids are only taught to follow directions, where will our next Artist, Sculptor, Chef or Inventor come from????
Children learn by asking “what if” and “why” questions followed by getting physical with their subject matter. Play is the work of children!
Science Matters For Kids™ offers children opportunities to engage with big concepts and ideas at a level that makes sense to them. Scientific terms and ideas are shared in real language and never “dumbed down.” When we’re discussing the scientific method and making a hypothesis… we use the word “hypothesis!”
Cooking is more than just following a recipe!
Cooking Matters For Kids™ offers children opportunities to actually, well… Cook! Yes, a 5 year old can cook! We aren’t just teaching measuring and pouring. We are discovering what happens when we add or eliminate things from our foods. What is the science behind how we cook things and what happens when we do things differently.
Be inspired by our inspiration classes!
Inspiration Matters For Kids™ offers students the opportunity to create using materials provided but from the inspiration of the day! This is not just an arts and crafts class. We will be working with lots of different materials and create from our own imagination. Our inspiration might be a book, a piece of art, a holiday or even FOOD!
Shall we play a game?
Playtime Matters For Kids™ is the answer to the statement “I’m Bored”! Unplug your kids from their electronics for a fun, interactive exciting class. We will learn to play checkers, hopscotch, jacks, jump rope and other age old favorites! They may not give up video games, but at least they will now have a few different options.
When you pay with a credit card, is it free money?
Money Matters For Kids™ is a 10 class program designed to teach kids about finances. Yes, even young kids can understand checkbooks, credit cards and savings in this unique program that uses the story of The Three Little Pigs to foster an understanding of how money works!
