Enrichment Class (Pre-K)
In addition to our sessions for children enrolled in our Pre-K 4 year old programs, we offer an Enrichment Opportunity for your child. Perhaps your child would love to have an extra day of creative learning experiences, and can join the class that meets on Tuesday mornings, September through May.
This class adds one additional half-day morning to your child’s week so he/she would attend CUMC 4 days per week. Children will LOVE this extra-special, theme-based class!
The children will explore a wide range of themes, crafts, literature and activities that involve STEM, creative writing, and mini projects and more! Each class will have a Lead Teacher and an Assistant Teacher.
The Lunch Bunch Express is loaded with fun and looking for passengers! We would love to have your child join us for lunch.
Lunch Bunch Parent(s) will provide the child’s (nut-free) lunch: drink, napkin, hand wipe, in a labeled disposable bag or lunch box.
Lunch Bunch takes place on Wednesdays from 12:00-1:00PM or 12:00-2:00PM. Children must be fully toilet trained. The children will gather in a classroom and have a supervised lunch, play inside and outside, weather permitting, and engage in age-appropriate play activities and stories.
Curious Kids Club (ages 3-5yrs)
This weekly program is designed to stimulate creativity in children ages 3 and up and is offered on Monday afternoons from 11:55am-2pm.
Children enjoy a packed lunch from home, then participate in a variety of activities centered around a monthly theme such as cooking, science, gardening, games, crafts, and more. The Curious Kids Club not only develops skills, but also encourages children to explore their unique talents and interests in a structured setting.
As with the Lunch Bunch Program, parents are invited to use the Curious Kids Club Express to extend a child's day. Enrollment is offered month to month. Fees vary per month, depending on the number of sessions held, and the cost of craft supplies. Cost is determined by number of sessions in a month.
Activities and Special Events
Throughout the school year, we offer a variety of activities, special events, holiday celebrations, guests and field trips to create a multidimensional learning experience.
We invite parents to share our quest for learning, and welcome their time and talents. In keeping with our ecumenical philosophy, the church pastors are invited occasionally to share classroom lessons and activities.
