The IMAGINE Program provides clubs-based enrichment programs for school age children in grades Kindergarten through Sixth. During before and after school hours, weekday evenings, vacation days and weeks, as well as summer weeks and evenings, children in the IMAGINE Program will learn to make healthy choices in a supportive, non-competitive environment!
There are five components of the IMAGINE program which reflect New Morning Schools' tenets of developing healthy bodies and minds in a non-competitive environment. At the IMAGINE Program, children are empowered to make their own choice about what activities to do, based upon the specific focus of that day, the child’s individual interests and energy levels. IMAGINE staff guide children toward making informed, healthy choices.
The IMAGINE Program has limited enrollment. Students must be pre-registered to save their spot in the IMAGINE Program, and attendance must be scheduled in advance. Please see our IMAGINE brochure for pricing and payment details.
