Homeschool Enrichment Program

Join us for a day of learning and fun each week to enrich your child’s homeschool experience and connect with homeschool families. Each session is 7 weeks and includes a new combination of activities based on the interests of the group and staff availability. Some of the possible activities could include:

  • Yoga - Children derive enormous benefits from yoga including enhanced flexibility, strength, coordination, and body awareness. In addition, their concentration and sense of calmness and relaxation improves. 
  • Swimming - Including 45 minutes of swim lessons and open swim time in our indoor heated pool. 
  • Intro to STEM - This innovative enrichment program is designed for students interested in deepening their knowledge of STEM concepts. Presented in collaboration with the Connecticut STEM Academy. For more information on our program, please see our website at
  • Intro to Theater - Does your child like to act, sing, and dance? We have the perfect program for them! A performance, with simple costumes and props, is held during the final class. 
  • Cooking
  • CrossFit Kids 
  • Gymnastics 

Day/time: Fridays 9:30 a.m. - 2:30 p.m. Runs in 7 week sessions.
