Blast is a brand new Weekday program for children 3 years old (potty-trained) through 8th grade.  The 2021-2022 season begins on Wednesday, September 8th and will continue weekly for 24 weeks. We will have a break the week of Thanksgiving and a 3 week break during Christmas.                                                                                                                                                                                     
 Registration opens August 1st. There will be one evening registration opportunity on September 1st from 6:30-7:30 PM. There is a $20 one time registration fee per child to help cover expenses. Scholarships available to help with the fee.  Pre-registration is encouraged but registrations will be accepted anytime during the Blast season.                                                                                              
 Meals will be provided each night from 5:30-6:00 PM for all children prior to their lesson time. Please pay attention to the planned menu and send an alternative if your child cannot or will not eat the meal being provided. 
 Children will be in classes split by age/ grade level.  (Pre-K, K-2, 3-5) They will begin and end in their classrooms, but they will rotate through 3 stations each night: Craft, Lesson & Games.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     All children Pre-K to 5th will have the same lesson each night. Parents will receive a weekly paper with details about what was taught & ways to discuss at home. Lessons are broken into sessions with a common theme. Sessions can be 4 weeks to 12 weeks long. For example, September is Olympics themed and relates to how athletes prepare themselves. The lessons are all on Daniel. A new session begins in October.
