After the school day, programming does not stop at Mountain Top.
We provide the opportunity for your child to stay for additional classes taught by industry professionals. For the Red and Blue Classes, enrichments include a snack and selected enrichment until 4pm Monday through Friday and our Yellow Enrichments run from 12pm-1pm 3 days a week.
Yellow Enrichment Programs:
Move ‘n Groove: The children will enjoy moving their bodies during a variety of engaging activities including dance, music, jumping and games. This program will encourage individual creative expression, cognitive development, rhythm and self-confidence. Children will also enhance their gross motor skills while developing coordination and muscle strength.
Messy Art: Getting messy is a part of being a child, and art activities tend to be messy. Children will have the opportunity to experiment with different artistic techniques and media. Children will have a chance to explore art for art’s sake, and they can enjoy the process of creating, rather than being caught up in the end product. They learn so many skills about mixing colors, consistency and texture simply by playing, and without even knowing it, they transfer those skills to other types of art activities as well.
Silly Science: Mushy and messy creative explorations for the child who loves to get their hands goopy! Children are born scientists: they are naturally curious about the world around them, and learn best through hands-on experimentation. Whether we’ll be learning about bubbles and color mixing, to shadows and light, each class is designed to captivate your child’s curiosity and fulfill their natural desire to touch, see and explore.
Red & Blue Enrichment Programs:
Amazing Athletes is a sports based fitness program specifically designed for preschool children. We coach the basic fundamentals of nine major ball sports: football, basketball, soccer, volleyball, baseball, hockey, lacrosse, tennis and golf. We also teach developmental skills such as eye-hand coordination, gross and fine motor skills, cardio, muscle tone, speed and agility.
Wee Little Arts will allow your child to experience an exciting visual arts program and create frame worthy masterpieces. Art lessons are specifically designed for the preschool child. Wee Little Arts uses a wonderful children’s library of art literature that introduces the art of the masters and their techniques. Our program is presented in a process-oriented manner. The class taps the intrinsic curiosity of each child allowing them freedom of creative expression as they apply these techniques to create their own artwork inspired by the work of the master artist. Using studio quality materials, this class will keep even the most ingenious and spirited child engaged.
Junior Scientists uses science activities to help explore the world around us. Through experimentation and questioning, our children gain a deeper understanding of how things work; what our senses are used for; and what you can do with simple materials. Hands-on learning is the key to this fun, engaging class. Mountain Top teacher led enrichment.
Gotta Dance classes are high-energy, movement-based and age-appropriate. Each class begins with a warm-up followed by creative movement to build balance, motor skills, and social skills. Our dance educators use fun, educational props to engage preschoolers and teach self-control, simple ballet dance movements and dance terminology. Preschoolers develop strength in their large muscle groups and discover the joy and freedom in movement. Skills learned in class are reinforced by coloring pages in our Daisy and Danny the Dancer coloring books that each dancer receives.
Little Chefs stirs up your child’s culinary imagination with fun, developmentally appropriate cooking experiences. This program introduces young chefs to recipes, ingredients, cooking vocabulary, kitchen tools, and the importance of a healthy diet. Children will learn about the food groups and how important it is to eat fruits and vegetables to stay strong and healthy. Math and science are an integral part of cooking as well. Recipes will be 100% nut free. Bon Appetit. Mountain Top teacher led enrichment.
