Spring S.T.E.A.M. Club Registration 2019

2018-2019 March, April & May Afternoon Clubs

Afternoon STEAM 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. Our wonderful teachers plan month long studies on a given topic. You can register your child for as many or a few club days as you would like. We do encourage signing up on the same day, for a month-long duration however for your child to gain the full experience. Your child will still enjoy many wonderful activities if they join us for a day, but they may not have the complete product to take home that is being created over the course of the month. We are offering Clubs to preschool and kindergarten children Monday – Friday afternoons from 1:00-4:00 pm. Each Club meets one day per week. Each Class is $30.00 per day/class with the option to include lunch from 12:00-1:00 and/or Afternoon extension from 4:00-5:00 for an addition $10.00 fee per day/extension.

The Spring Session will run from March 1 – May 24.
