Choose Your Own Adventure

What fun stuff would you like to do? Bring your ideas to share and we will decide as a team what fun games and programs to participate in each week. We may decide to make gifts for friends, choreograph a new dance, or maybe even build a habitat for backyard birds. The creative and fun instructor will bring team building and loads of fun activities to start with. Then it will be up to you to unlock the imagination and creativity to plan an afternoon of fun.

Health Kick

Ready to run, play, and learn? Get moving with activities focused on healthy, active lifestyles that will make our bodies and minds feel great. Each class session includes games and sports, along with lessons on fitness, creating healthy snacks, food choices, and relieving stress.

Awesome Authors

Come with us on an adventure as we transform into authors and illustrators. The course will focus on brainstorming story ideas, creating a story board, writing and editing work, illustrating, and book binding. There will also be exciting pirate crafts and activities each week. The course will end with a book sharing celebration. Each child will leave with a copy of the book the group has created that can be cherished for many years to come!  Each session of this class will have a theme so many different types of books can be created.

Our favorite parts of the class were working together with a friend and the teachers. - 1st grade participants


Get ready to cut, tie, dab, mix, and glue! Each week we will work on a creative and fun art project. Learn to make snow globes, coasters, bouncy balls, slime, and much more! Students will help choose  the project for each following week. This is a great class to help each student express themselves in new and creative ways!

Hanover Habitat Explorer

Are you curious about what animals, plants and other creatures are living near your school? We will finally find out who we have been sharing our space with all this time! We will frequently go outside to examine and discover creatures and other living things. We will also discover ways to help make a positive impact on our local community and habitat.

Lesson plan topics can include Life in the Cold, Backyard Birds and Animals in our Area.

Junior Chef

Get your chef hats out and join us in our Junior chef class! We will explore various ways to make food and be safe in the kitchen while using hot plates, blenders, and griddles. We will create a variety of recipes and have anew theme each month. You will learn how to follow a recipe by understanding the amount of ingredients needed and the preparation instructions. We will be looking for ideas from you as well. So dust off the cookbooks and come in ready to make tasty treats!

My son has been telling all his friends how fun this class is and they want to join the next session.  - Quincy Mom
