Generally speaking, we extend an invitation to all of our students enrolled in our “Children’s House” program (pre-K and up) to attend our “extended day.”  This option extends the school day to 2:00 pm.  These students stay for lunch (brought from home) and then have another hour or more of afternoon instruction.  It is during this time that students are introduced to the Cultural Arts.  Lessons are given in cooking, sewing, weaving, art and a variety of other pursuits designed to develop concentration and small motor skills.  These children also receive further instruction in Science and Geography, via an introduction to ‘in-depth’ research projects (geared to their developmental level).  Recent topics of discovery have been “Travel Across America,”  “The Life Cycle of Butterflies,”  “Biomes and Animal Habitats,” and “Native American Cultures.”  The capstone event for this group of children is the opportunity to write and perform a skit at our annual Spring Fling event.

Regrettably, this option is no longer available to our Toddlers, as we can no longer offer a “Nap Room” due to the COVID pandemic. We will possibly re-visit this option at some future time.
