Explorers Program

A Perfect Fit

The Explorers Program is an innovative, creative STEAM driven enrichment program offered on Thursday Afternoons for 4 and 5 year olds and provides in-depth hands on exploration of monthly topics chosen to address the needs and interests of the children enrolled. The excitement, creativity and discoveries children make as they explore, increase their knowledge, and stretch their minds are contagious.  This program remains popular with our children and their families. Many children claim it is the highlight of their week.
Examples of topics offered in the past have been ZOOM IN ON PHOTOGRAPHY, ART BEYOND CRAYONS:THE ABCS OF THE MEDIA OF ART, PUSH PULL DROP AND ROLL, AND YOU'VE GOT TO HAVE HEART.
Students have engaged in activities from making their own stomp rockets to walking through a larger than life model of a human heart, to dancing their way out of their shells to "The Ballet of the Unhatched Chicks" by Mussorgsky. 
Students may sign up for a permanent spot in Explorers for the year, by the month, or by the individual session (if space allows). All Explorers classes are capped at 10 children.
