Fall Preschool Enrichment Classes

My Grown Up & Me Class (ages 21mos - 3 years) 

My Grown Up & Me is a fun classroom experience designed to help the child achieve new milestones and promote development.  Our classes encourage multi-sensory experiences to stimulate language, socialization, creativity, and independence in your child.  Classes are for students that are too young for our 3's program or not quite ready to separate from their families.


Ready, Set, Science

Your child will have the opportunity to get curious, explore, create, and investigate through hands on STEM activities.  Indoor and outdoor playtime is included. Children need to be potty trained.  


Storybook Adventures

Join us to enter the magical world of nursery rhymes and fairy tales. Each week the children will enjoy a new story incorporating dramatic play, 3D art concepts, songs and theater as they act out the weekly stories!  Outside playtime is also included.  Children need to be potty trained. 



Join us for a fun outdoor class that promotes PLAY and exercise!  Weekly group games that promote physical development, friendships, and fun.  Scavenger hunts, cooperative games, nature crafts, and storytime under the big tree.
