Sammamish Arts & Science Lab
For: Children 3-5 years old by August 31.
To further enrich your child’s school experience, the Parent Education Department at Bellevue College (BC) offers unique Enrichment Classes for children.
These classes offer an explosion of activities to excite the mind and growing interest of the preschool to kindergarten aged child. Whichever class you choose, your child is certain to burst forth with enthusiasm for the creative discoveries he makes through full, hands-on participation.
Sammamish Arts and Sciences Lab is a one day per week enrichment program for three to five year olds, including kindergarteners. We offer hands-on exploration of a weekly curriculum theme through art activities and science experiments, which support and help children deepen their understanding of that theme. There is even a cooking experience included in each class ~ children are able to prepare their own snack as part of the learning.
The Lab, offered in ten-week segments, is a cooperative program with direct parental involvement and support. Parents have two roles as part of the program. First, parents will act as a teacher assistant in the classroom at least one time per session. Second, parents are able to attend regular parent education discussions regarding parenting and family life with a preschool or kindergarten aged child. Two Parent Education classes, led by an experienced Bellevue College Parent Educator, are held each session while the children are in class, and parents choose one that fits their schedule best.
We invite you and your children to come experience, create, explore and discover with us!
