Aftercare Clubs

VMS Owl Pellet Lab-optWilderness Club
Come join us for our special wilderness club where we are enjoying the outdoors and learn to understand the workings of nature and our own unique connection to it. Our program gives the children the opportunity to experience and learn about biomes, plants, animals and more. The students engage with the animal and plant life around them, but also with the first people of this land, the Native Americans.

Team Building Nature Games train the children’s senses, teach them how to walk in the woods and how to orient themselves in nature. At the example of the Natives the children practice their wilderness survival skills. This club is very multifaceted and stirs up a love and passion in the children for the outdoors.

Science Adventure Club
The Science Adventure Club is for the curious student who wants to explore and learn more about science. Please join Mrs. Stephens and Mrs. Elliot on a fabulous science adventure. Each week the science club conducts a new experiment and students learn about a variety of science topics including earth science, physics, biology, zoology, chemistry, and more! Join us as we shoot rockets, build catapults, experience chemical reactions, dissect owl pellets, and build a solar power oven.

Movement Club
Movement Club is for all kids that love to move! Which child does not? We stretch, roll, wave, spin, skip, slide, and dance our hearts out. We watch, listen and learn either with a partner or in groups. Movement is natural, healthy and expressive, building confidence in these beautiful children.

Spanish Club
In this club we are introducing the children to the Spanish language and culture in a playful fashion. The kids learn first words, phrases and expression. They also learn more about South America, Spain, the Spanish speaking countries, their cultures and traditions. You can never start teaching a second language soon enough. The younger the kids the easier they learn while having a lot of fun.

Games Club
In the days of computers and social media we are rediscovering the art of the game in this club! We re-introduce our children to challenging and fun games of all kinds. From card games to board games, from individual games to group games, we cover the entire spectrum. In a fun and joyful way, the kids practice their social as well as their relationship skills, and much more.

Art, Drama and Music Club
We focus on many aspects of the performing arts! Putting on a show is much more than just walking on a stage, and much of what goes into building a performance are entire art forms in themselves. We cover topics such as auditioning, stage directions, prop building, costume design, puppet making, mask building, storytelling, improvisation, music design, and more. During other parts of the year, we introduce instruments and provide opportunities to play them in addition to exposing our children to a variety of art media.
