Jr. Explorer Clubs


Paddington offers discovery classes in Science, Computers, Art, ABC ~ 123,
Music and Movement, Children’s Yoga, English, Spanish and French Languages.
Clubs run from August-May, 9-12 or 12-3. They are also a perfect addition to your
Academic Program if you did not get the number of days you needed.

Explorers are considered students of the school and are eligible for enrollment in our
Academic classes as space becomes available and take precedence over those on the
waiting list. Children are required to be out of diapers and pull-ups for these programs.
Enrollment is open year-round. Explorer Clubs ages 3-5, Kids Club ages 2-5.

Immerse your child in the fascinating and magical world of Science! Your Junior Scientist will develop skills in observation, measurement, prediction, analysis and problem solving through exploring and experimenting with an array of fun, hands-on activities. We offer two completely different programs, providing the option for a two-year curriculum, with themes from Bugs and Insects to Space and Planets.






 

Your little one’s fascination with technology will thrive and grow while exploring the wonderful world of computers. We will study basic equipment care and handling, keyboarding and “techno-talk.” Junior Explorers also expand their skills through educational programs, games and the Learning Land series.



Jiggle, wiggle, dance and sing your way into this exciting club! Your little ones will be enthralled as they learn different styles of dance, yoga, and movement. They will also be a part of our marching band, learn all about the orchestra, have fun with musical games and make musical instruments. This club is orchestrated to have fun!



Bonjour et Buenos Dias! This early natural exposure to another language lays the foundation for future language success and is a gift that will last a lifetime. These languages are taught through phrases, games, counting, arts, crafts, Muzzy and the Little Linguist series. Celebrations, cultural stories and food tasting will also add adventure, to delight and intrigue your little ones.


We will be taking your child on a journey through the world of Art. They will be introduced to the famous Artists from Monet to Picasso and will be replicating many of their masterpieces. We will also expand their knowledge of art and all its forms through pastels, oil painting, decoupage, fabric art, masks, stained glass, clay modeling, pointillism and so much more! An Art Gallery Exhibit of your child’s work is held yearly.



This is an Academic Enrichment class that will encompass developmental activities in the areas of phonics, pre-reading, handwriting skills, mathematics and more. This class is ideal for the child who needs a little extra review or to reinforce what is being studied in class and for the child where English is their second Language.



Our Kids’ Club is a fun play-based program divided into two groups: Nappers and Players. Nappers will rest, then play upon waking. Players will have opportunities for both teacher-directed and child-directed activities, including Dress-Up, Library time, games, PE and other activities spanning from Nature Walks and Gardening to Cooking Projects. Monday–Friday, 12–3 p.m. ages 2-5.



Yoga engages a child’s natural boundless energy, and conveys valuable lessons in positive thinking and body-mind awareness. Our Kids’ Yoga class is alive with magical journeys where children meet with animals, fly an airplane, drive a car, grow into a tree or imitate ocean waves, all in the form of dynamic yoga poses. We use music and song, silly props, games, stories, relaxation and visualization, meditation, mandala painting and more.


Advance your English speaking skills. Your children will begin to develop the English language through a range of experiences such as conversational phrases, oral games, phrases used at home and at school, clothes, body parts, songs and so much more.
