Enrichment Offerings

These classes are unavailable at this time due to COVID - 19 restrictions. We will offer them as soon as restrictions are lifted by IDPH and DCFS.

At Little Angels we offer Enrichment classes in the afternoon to support and extend what the children are learning in the classroom. These classes are held from 12:30 - 3:00 pm. There is a minimum of five children enrolled to hold the class. 
 
Monday:
Hooked on Books ( 3 & 4 year olds)

This class will give the children an introduction to children's literature in a creative way. They will focus on a book a week, doing art, drama and activities related to the story.  This class is available for daily sign-up or as a year long commitment

Jolly Phonics (4 years old)
This class will continue the Jolly Phonics lessons presented in the fours classes each week.  The children will learn the 26 main letter sounds, use different multi-sensory methods to form and write the letters and learn how to blend the sounds together to read and write new words.  Each lesson builds on the previous week's lesson.  This class is available for year long commitment only. (this class will be repeated on Thursday's). 

Tuesday:
Kitchen Creations  (2 & 3 year olds)

Pre-K  Enrichment (4 year olds)

Wednesday:
Creative Builders ( 2, 3 & 4 year olds)
In this class children will create their unique designs and make structures using Legos, blocks, recycled materials and many other unique and interesting materials. We will learn to problem solve, work as a team and get creative!  This class is available for daily sign-up or as a year long commitment.

All "STEAMed" Up (4 year olds)
The children will have the opportunity to have hands on Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math experiences.  Each child will be able to put his/her ideas into action.  They will explore, question, hypothesize, and problem solve through the interaction with real things in the environment.  Instilling an interest in any of these fields at an early age can spark a lasting desire to learn more and to develop a child's intellectual learning that will enhance their experiences throughout their education.  This class is available for daily sign up or as a year long commitment.

Thursday:
