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. This class is 30 minutes long, pick-up time is 1:30pm

Rhapsody in Rainbows (Tuesdays during our Aftercare Program from 2:30-3pm)

Rhapsody in Rainbows is an imagination inspired program.  Each child will have the opportunity to experience the freedom of art and music through each of the five senses, including having the opportunity to create their own musical works of art! They will be introduced to a variety of musical genres, including bluegrass, hip hop, classical, tribal drumming and punk rock, as well as fun multimedia art techniques. My hope is that each child will discover their own love for free expression, creativity, rhythm and rhyme and carry it with them for the rest of their lives.

The class is taught by one of our very own Beth Ami teachers, Amanda Burwasser. For questions, pricing or to register for this class, you may e-mail her directly at rhapsodyinrainbows@gmail.com.

Amazing Athletes (Wednesdays)

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 1:35pm

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.
