IPC Day School

Enrichment Programs

  • We engage with the world around us by inviting community artists and first responders into the classroom to share their creative talents and valuable safety information. In years' past, these have included visits from police and firefighters, clay artists, live music performers, and puppeteers.

    Soccer Shots is offered as an after-school enrichment opportunity for children enrolled in Three-Year-Olds, Four-Year-Olds, and Five-Year-Olds. It is led by Jason Kendall, John Stagni, and Jacob Chambliss who believe that athletic involvement encourages self-discipline, social interaction, and better fitness habits. They also find great importance in providing positive role models and character development for children. Having played or been involved with sports since a young age, they found the Soccer Shots Organization to be a great way to get children involved with a sport that they not only love but believe to be the best sport for fitness development for our youth.

    We are excited to offer a new after-school enrichment opportunity this fall for our 4s and Top Dogs. Join Miss Beth this Fall in Step, Skip & Leap, a preschool music enrichment class. We will meet in the fall to explore the many ways God loves the world. "God Loves the World" based on John 3:16, invites children to explore how God expresses love to us and how we should respond. God's love embraces all people in all places, and we find fulfillment in loving all that God loves. Fun songs and activities from around the world bring creativity to your child's time with us each week.
