Kindergarten Enrichment Classes

At schools where the kindergarteners have early out, this is a special program just for our youngest learners. With hands-on learning experiences that integrate math, literacy, and social skills in meaningful ways, students create while building friendships. This program helps the children quickly make and deepen friendships while increasing confidence during school. Each class follows this routine:

  • Story Time Literacy
  • Imaginative Literacy and Math Play
  • Student Presentations

We do not have a Kindergarten only enrichment class at Hatch. Kindergarten students may attend our regular program which begins at 1:45 daily, or at school wide early dismissals.   

 

Special Note To Hillsborough K Parents:

At Hillsborough, if you are not sure whether your kindergartener will have 1:15 early dismissal or 2:45 regular dismissal, please register for 1:15 early dismissal, and email your site director once the placement has been determined. Please give the school specific reasons when you request early or late dismissal, including the need for early out Workshop.

 Colleges want innovative leaders, and we create them here. Our 180 innovation classes a year in all subject areas teach children STEM, design thinking, and leadership skills with our unique innovation classes in all subject areas including writing, science, public speaking, entrepreneurship, fine arts, math, and design thinking as taught at Stanford University's d.school. 

 

Our classes follow this routine:

From creating and marketing the perfect ice-cream recipe to developing their own companies, Workshop students are fully engaged in learning. Each class is designed to provide a stand-alone learning experience for drop-in students, as well as richer learning experiences for students who complete the 1 to 2 week units.
