2016-2017 Afterschool Program for Preschool 2’s and 3’s
The Afterschool Program is an enrichment-based, specialized program offered at the 152 North 5th Street Campus and supervised by WNP staff Monday through Thursday from 3:00 pm-4:20 pm. During Afterschool, the children receive a healthy snack and are invited to participate in 40 minutes of enrichment class and 40 minutes of free play. General monthly journals are posted to our school blog to keep you updated on the afterschool activities.
How does the Williamsburg Bridge stay up? Why wasn’t the Big Bad Wolf able to blow down the house of bricks? Through experimentation, research, and guided exploration, children will have the opportunity to answer their own questions in our newest addition to the Afterschool line-up. Students will be guided through basic engineering and planning processes using a myriad of building materials while engaging their creative side through story-telling and the visual arts.
Bon Appetit! Children will use fresh, natural ingredients to whip up delicious snacks and treats, all while learning about nutrition and healthy eating habits. Students will be encouraged to try new dishes, learn more about where their food comes from, and work together to create a comprehensive book of recipes to take home at the end of the session.
Imagine That! (with Child’s Play NY)
In our programming for pint-sized players we delight in dramatic play, song and creative movement and storytelling. Language skills, listening and collaboration blossom during the session. Using their bodies, voices and minds, students re-interpret classic and contemporary children’s literature and are inspired to create their own adventures. Simple props and costumes help them bring their characters to life. Connections are made to the world around them through story and play.
Super Soccer Stars
At Super Soccer Stars, it is our goal to teach soccer skills in a fun, non-competitive, educational environment. Our philosophy is to use soccer to nurture, to build self-confidence, and to develop teamwork in every class. Our specially designed curricula use positive reinforcement and a low child-to-coach ratio to ensure that each child improves at his or her own rate while having endless fun.
Extended Care Option – For 3’s families ONLY – NEW OFFERING!
This year, we are pleased to introduce our Extended Care option! During extended care hours, students will be invited to participate in teacher-led activities as well as unstructured free exploration that will be held in a familiar, comfortable setting. In addition, children will have the option to enjoy a light snack sent from home. Extended care is available from 4:20pm – 5:30 pm Monday through Thursday. Please note that Extended Care assumes enrollment in regular Afterschool and is a full-year program.
