The Summer Enrichment Program is for children entering 3 or 4 year old preschool (child must be 3 by Sept. 2, 2017 and potty trained), kindergarten and first grade in the fall. We are also considering having a mixed age class rising 2nd grade to rising 6th grade doing project based work if there is enough interest. The program will run Monday-Thursday from 9-12 for the weeks of June 19, June 26, July 17, and July 24. The program will include a Monday Chapel, educational group times, art experiences, outdoor and creative play, snacks, and Bible stories. The cost is $65 per week per child. On Monday, parents will be given information on what learning activities and bible verse will be the focus of that week. Spaces will be limited. There will be a one-time registration fee to cover supplies of $15 per child. Applications will be at the church’s reception desk and outside of the preschool office. Acceptance will be emailed and the first week’s fee along with the registration fee will be due by April 21 to hold your spot. The registration fee is non-refundable.
