Enrichment classes for children ages 3 to 5
These classes give children a chance to explore music, science, the arts and more after Preschool dismissal. Both children enrolled in JCP’s ECC, as well as those from other schools, participate in these programs. JCP ECC students whose class dismissal coincides with the start of their after school program will be escorted to class by a member of JCP staff.
Classes are designed and paced especially for preschoolers ages 4-5. Children will enjoy lively interactive lessons and original mini-games under the guidance of extraordinary and nurturing chess instructors who are expert with young chess players. The class is limited to a small size to ensure an excellent teacher to student ratio.
Children will develop critical social skills including effective turn-taking, flexibility, reading social cues and conflict resolution. This small group provides support for creative play and teaches children to navigate social situations in a structured, fun and warm environment.
Every week children devise their own unique concepts and designs and the play is a wonderful balance between fantasy and concrete problem solving.
Is your child ready to get started learning Spanish, or to improve his or her existing skill sets? Using games, songs, stories and activities, children will learn Spanish vocabulary and conversation in an age appropriate and fun way.
Using games, stories, and hands-on classroom science demonstrations, children will learn the basics of scientific exploration. Each week, children take on the role of a scientist and explore different properties of chemistry, physics, and biology.
Past experiments have included constructing a mini volcano; exploring basic mechanics using ramps, wedges, tubes and blocks; and dissecting a flower with tweezers and observing their findings under a magnifying glass. Children will be encouraged to ask questions and explore the world around them.
Our unique Tennis program introduces children 3-5 years old to tennis skills. This program features small, age appropriate breakout groups to focus on skill building. Children will learn tennis, hand-eye coordination, balance, and athletic skills through play. They will socialize, exercise and build confidence in a fun, nurturing, highly motivated environment.
This monthly class welcomes children into our community of learners. Through art, story, and shira (singing), students will explore the Hebrew language and Jewish holidays to lay the foundation for their continued Jewish learning. This class is geared toward Pre K aged children. We welcome families old and new to JCP to join this program and our community.
