Lunch Bunch is an opportunity for children in the 4 year old class to bring a sack lunch once a week to eat at school. Included in the hour-long period is eating together, conversation, a story, and play period. Two trained staff members also lead the children in discussions centered on habits of a healthy life-style – nutritious meals, proper exercise, and good manners.Three separate sessions are available (fall, winter, spring). Separate enrollment is required.
“Super Science” and “All About a Book” are hour-long afternoon classes available for 4 year olds. For 3 year olds “A Little More Time” allows them to bring a lunch to school, eat with their friends and teacher, and then participate in a cooking project.
With their own suitcases and passports in hand, children in this class visit a new country every three to four weeks. In learning the customs, culture, and a few words of each language, children practice writing, math, science, geography, and reading skills. They keep a record of their trip in their writing journal and make scientific observations in their science journal.
This is an enrichment class for children currently attending Kindergarten and meets Thursday afternoons and Friday mornings. KinderPlus is open to all community Kindergarten students.
