Enrichment

Enrichment Registration is now open for Fall classes!! 
Fall 2022 Enrichments are for our future 4 Day and Pre-K students.
What is an enrichment? An enrichment is an add-on to your child’s school day that enriches their early childhood experience and extends the time they spend at school. Enrichments are created and run by the amazing staff at NFCNS and include activities outside the typical school day. Families can enroll in as many or as few enrichments as they like.
Enrichments occur immediately after (for 4 Day) or before (for Pre-K) your child’s preschool day.  On days when your child is signed up for enrichments, NFCNS teachers will bring them from their preschool class, to their enrichment class.  You will pick them up from school when their enrichment class is over. It’s a fun way to give them a little bit of a longer school day.  
How do I apply for my child to attend enrichments? Links for the Enrichment Applications are below.  There are limited spots open in some classes, others are already full.  Please use the application for your child’s classroom for the 2022-2023 school year.  Payment in full is due at the time of registration.  

For updated availability or questions, please contact the NFCNS Director.

Pre Pre-K Program at the Northfield Park District

Enrollment through the Northfield Park District will be available in August

Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays: 8:30-12:15

Due to staffing and transportation constraints, students who attend enrichments on these days are unable to attend Pre Pre-K.
