Class Descriptions

From babies to our elementary aged children, there’s something for everyone!

Please note, age ranges for all of our children’s classes are carefully chosen to optimize enjoyment of the subject as well as for a child’s ability to thrive among their peers. We ask that your child meet the minimum age requirement by the first day of class.

If you find the need to change from one class to another, we will honor your request but only during the first two weeks of each semester.

Alphabet Soup (Ages 2 – 4 years)

Every week, little ones will learn letter and number recognition through music, books and crafts that reinforce the letter or number that has been assigned for the week.  This is a great primer for little ones gearing up for nursery school.

Bricks 4 Kids (Ages 6 – 9 years)

Where can your child develop teamwork, creativity and problem solving skills?  Is there a place where they can play and socialize with friends… and learn at the same time? Bricks4Kidzô after school classes build on the popular LEGOÆ bricks to deliver  high-quality educational play.  Each hour-long class is an engaging experience for your child with a new project each week.  Our unique models aren’t the kits you find on the shelves of a toy store.  They’re designed by Bricks4Kidzô to teach concepts across a variety of subject area. Working with a partner or by themselves, your child will experience the hands-on fun of seeing a model come together piece-by-piece, from concept to completion – and it’s motorized!  To register, visit the Bricks4Kidz website.
