ENRICHMENT (Winter 2024)
What is enrichment?
The purpose of enrichment classes is to offer your child experiences beyond the typical preschool day. We bring in a variety of programming, including soccer, art, gardening, LEGO workshops, science, yoga, etc. If you want your child to experience this type of programming, this may be a convenient choice for you as it is offered during the school day.
Enrichment classes are offered to the 3s and 4s classes at JPS between 1:15-2:00pm on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays in three semesters: fall, winter, and spring. The classes are provided at an additional cost to families and are not included in tuition.
A staff member will escort the children to and from the enrichment classroom. If your child is enrolled beyond 1pm, they will be transferred from the classroom to the enrichment and returned afterwards. These children miss their nap time, so if your child is still consistently napping, they may not yet be ready for enrichment.
If your child is enrolled until 1pm, you may pick up at 2pm on days your child is enrolled in enrichment classes.
