Clubs

  • Afternoon STEAM Club Programming…

  • This year HeartPrints will offer 5 afternoons of club programming.  The foundation of our club curriculum is STEAM education.  STEAM is an acronym that refers to education-related programs in the disciplines of science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics.  STEAM education indicates integration of at least two of the STEAM disciplines within a curricular activity.  Our club curriculum is designed to support and enhance young children’s learning through quality activities that expose children to new concepts/ideas and encourage children to use their developing skills in a variety of creative ways.
    • Programs are open to preschool and kindergarten children.
    • We anticipate programs will fill up quickly.  Please consider your options and register early!
    • We are offering Clubs Monday through Friday afternoons from 1:00-4:00 pm.
    • Per instructions attached – please include the calendar with your registration form.  Write your child’s name in days he/she will attend.
  • Club Schedule & Topics:

    The registration for Fall Clubs is due Thursday, September 14th. 

    If you plan to register your child month by month, please turn in your form by the 15th of each month prior.

    Monday – Engineering Club (Gadgets, circuits, buildings & more!) 

    Let’s tinker away as we investigate. Join us while we investigate simple machines like levers, pulleys and inclined planes. We will learn how these simple machines helped create the pyramids and prevented the Leaning Tower of Pisa from toppling. Students will build catapults and marble runs. 

    Tuesday – Chemistry Club 

    In September children will have fun experimenting with colors. They will be mixing, blending and using a unique color transferring process. 

    October will be filled with magical potions. They will make things that are bumpy, slimy and fizzy. 

    November is all about edible chemistry. Children will create edible treats that go from solid to liquid and/or liquid to solid. 

    Wednesday – Forestry Club 

    Nature is such a magical place! In Forestry Club, we will be learning about the many marvels that nature has to offer! 

    We will make the most of September’s nice weather by focusing on trees. We will spend time in the Heart Prints Forest exploring and learning about trees, bark, leaves and the many animals that inhabit them. 

    In October we will focus on the changes that begin to occur as the weather gets cooler. We will conduct experiments to learn about the chlorophyll in leaves. We will also learn about the growth process of pumpkins by starting to grow our very own! The colorful leaves will inspire artwork as well. 

    As the weather cools down in November, our outdoor experiences will start to move indoors. We will explore natural versus manmade resources. We will use recycled materials to make our very own paper as we learn about reducing, reusing and recycling to keep our Earth healthy. 

    Thursday – Creative Arts Club 

    Each Thursday will be filled with music exploration and appreciation. 

    In September children will be introduced to Antonio Vivaldi and learn about the four seasons through music, dance and the use of instruments. 

    October’s club will focus on three famous composers Modest Mussorgsky, Camille Saint-Seans, and Edvard Grieg (from the Trolls Movie). 

    November will be all about the Nutcracker and Tchaikovsky. 

    Games, songs, choreographing dances and art will all be included in this fun Thursday club. 

    Friday – Cooking Club 

    Our friends from “Meals on Wheels” are excited about the Friday cooking club starting up again. After taking a break for the summer, the children will be baking and sampling delicious treats that we will deliver to this great community program. 

    September we will be cooking with apples. 

    October we will be making different types of breads ex: Zucchini bread, pumpkin bread 

    November will be pie making! Children will choose a type of pie they would like to make for their family and will take it home for Thanksgiving. 

    Math Skills Incorporated in this club: Doubling a recipe requires addition (or multiplication) skills, halving it require division, and recipe fractions like 1/2 cup and 3/4 teaspoon bring math applications into the kitchen. Often, kids don’t recognize they are practicing math! 

     

  • Please take a few minutes to explore the possibilities.  Families may enroll in one or more club sessions.  We encourage families to consider enrolling in a consistent club schedule because some clubs may do project work lasting several weeks.
