After school classes provide social & academic support (+ save $10 with early bird registration)

Guest Blogger Sally Searls, Lifelong Learning Manager

Research continues to show that out-of-school time enrichment and recreational activities help kids socially and academically. Quality after school activities aren’t just “something to do” until a parent/guardian is available – they provide essential experiences for youth development.

That’s why we at Rec & Ed are so proud of our expanded after school programs. 

In our fall listing of after school classes, you’ll find:

Hands-on experience in Nutty Scientists' class.

• STEAM-based Science and Technology classes that support children’s curiosity about science, technology, engineering, art and math with new themes each term.

• Art classes such as the Power of Drawing to increase visual skills, creativity and use of the right side of the brain.

• Opportunities to learn chess, the perfect game for developing concentration, problem solving, and strategic thinking skills.

• Sports activities to promote exercise and help children develop physical skills, reach goals, and learn teamwork.

Save $10 Early Bird Savings for After School Classes

This fall we are discounting all of our youth classes for elementary-age children, as well as selected adult classes. One of our goals is to make enrichment classes more available to our participants. By offering a $10 discount per class we decrease the cost of our already affordable classes so more children and adults can enroll. View the Rec & Ed Fall Catalog for classes and fees.
