We offer after-school Lunch Bunch programs for our 3’s, 4’s, and Pre-K children as follows:
Monday: For 3’s, 4’s, Pre-K until 1:30pm
Free Play: Your child will bring a lunch, eat with teachers and other children and then have relaxed playtime, inside and outside (weather permitting).
Tuesday: For 3’s and 4’s until 2:30pm
Craft Happy: For the child who loves doing crafts, this Lunch Bunch is right up their alley. We host a variety of projects and each week the kids make something to bring home, including potholders, mobiles, wooden planes and boats, beading, rain-sticks, stained glass, sand art, molding clay, wind chimes, pinwheels, picture frames, sewing, masks and more.
For 3’s until 1:30pm
Fingerplays Three-year-olds love using their hands and bodies to ‘bring a story to life’. This class incorporates beloved oldies like “Itsy Bitsy Spider” with newer finger plays such as “Monkeys & the Alligator.”
For 4’s until 2:30pm
Letters & Literature: Children learn about symbols when they do and when they are involved. Each week silly puppets will introduce a different letter through games, songs, activities and stories. Children will practice writing the letter of the week in the air, in sand, on paper – they may even try to form the letter with their body.
For 3’s until 2:30pm
Kitchen Capers: It’s all about the measuring, sifting, mixing, pouring, stirring in this class. The results (quesadillas, fruit smoothies, twice-baked potatoes, colored rice) are often delicious, but not always – what’s important is the process the children go through to create.
For 4’s until 2:30pm
Numbers & Science: Each week children will investigate numbers and life sciences through hands-on activities and experiments. They will count, measure, mix, balance objects, and test different combinations. They will discover many things to start understanding the world around them such as: Why does hair stand up in the winter? How can an ice cube stick to a string? What is hibernation? And what do worms eat?
For 3’s, 4’s and Pre-K until 1:30pm
Pizza Friday: We celebrate the end of the week with pizza, fruit and cookies and then enjoy free play and a story. If you’re child doesn’t eat pizza, they are free to bring their own lunch.
