Students have the opportunity to interact with friends in a fun and stimulating environment while taking part in instructor-led activities in this enrichment variety class! Various engaging activities in Stay & Play balance creative, recreational and educational enrichment. Each day consists of new and exciting activities that foster fun, friendship and hands-on learning. Arts and crafts, LEGO building, brain games, music, scavenger hunts, science activities and more make Stay & Play our most unique enrichment option!
One-on-one is individualized instruction at its best! One-on-one activities include academic tutoring and private music lessons such as guitar, piano and voice. Tutored students receive personalized instruction to help increase and expand their knowledge in a variety of subject matters. Music lessons focus on increasing the student’s knowledge in music theory, terminology and repertoire, while refining their specific instrumental or vocal skills.

My girls absolutely loved iKids! I only got positive feedback from them. One specific thing they liked is that they had a choice in activities. My girls have different interests so they appreciated having a choice and being able to participate in different things. They also both loved our Program Coordinator as do I!! Thanks for taking such good care of my babies!
I want to thank you again for everything, patience, care, follow-up, etc. We are happy with all the enrichment activities. The program is very rich, diverse and awesome! Thank you very much for designing it!
My son enjoys the robotics immensely; it is a wonderfully innovative program!
