Enrichment Classes

Threes dancingBACNS engages specialists who teach gymnastics and sports on various days after our regular school sessions. Parents who choose to enroll their children in the enrichment classes pay for them separately from their regular monthly tuition and extended care services.

HappyFeet Soccer (Mondays)

HappyFeet Soccer introduces the game of soccer through creative play. Coaches use stories, nursery rhymes, fun adventures, songs, and games. She is committed to helping children form healthy exercise habits through the world’s most popular game. The class is 30 minutes long, pick-up time is 1:30

Amazing Athletes (Tuesdays)

Amazing Athletes‘ Coaches help preschool-aged children develop their gross motor skills. The curriculum focuses on seven key areas of motor development, such as hopping, running, balancing, and catching, and also teaches the fundamentals of nine different sports, including soccer, basketball, tennis, and baseball. We believe that regular, explicit instruction in motor skill activity is vital to the development of the whole child, and, as such, is an integral component of any educational setting. The class is 35 minutes long, pick up time is 1:40

Our once-per-week, 35-minute classes are fast-paced, interactive, non-competitive, and most of all, fun! The curriculum features plenty of variety as well as repetition, and allows for differentiation based on students’ wide ranging readiness levels. Our program also incorporates stretching, fitness, muscle tone, agility, and nutrition. The skills we teach children translate to greater confidence on the playground, playing field, and classroom, and will benefit them now and as they continue to elementary school.
