HPCDC offers three enrichment programs:
Music instruction is provided by Bilingual Birdies. During music class, all of our children are taught Spanish while learning new and familiar songs.
Movement and gymnastic instruction is provided for the toddlers and preschoolers by STREB who teach the toddlers and preschoolers creative, fun and inclusive body movement.
In Sportsball the children in the toddler and preschool programs are provided with a skills-driven, high-energy and fun-filled curriculum. Sportball introduces children to the fundamental concepts and skills behind eight popular ball sports: baseball, football, basketball, golf, hockey, soccer, tennis and volleyball. Using creative instruction and positive encouragement, the program focuses on the development of gross motor skills, along with balance, strength, co-ordination, stamina and timing. The equipment that we use is age-appropriate and sized just right for the children.
For all ages, we offer a curriculum with a wide array of materials that provides stimuli for learning through play and exploration.
Our classrooms are designed to make children feel comfortable and are stocked with books, blocks, toys and designated areas to help children adapt to a schedule in a new learning environment.
