All after school programs will involve visits with the farm animals and gardening in addition to the themed activity.

Mondays: Cartography – Learn all about maps in our cartography unit on Mondays! We will talk about and make all different kinds of maps; weather maps, resource maps, topographical and landform maps.  Learn to use a compass, learn about latitude and longitude.  It’s not a lost art, maps are still super important and can help you get out of a jam! Knowing how to read maps is an essential skill, and we have lots of fun with it at the farm!

Tuesdays: Food! Around the world in 6 weeks – Part 1  – Tuesday’s after school program will be a look into our food system and healthy eating from around the world.  We will discuss what makes food healthy, where our food comes from, and we will have fun assembling creations made from healthy, fresh food traditional to other parts of the world.  This is sure to be a hit with everyone because it involves lots of hands-on work, and great food to eat!
*We will do our best to accommodate food allergies, but due to food prep limitations, a child with many food allergies may be best suited for another class.  Please email the education director for more information at info@philliesbridge.org!

Wednesdays: Math Fun! – Don’t like math? Do like math? This session is for you either way! With Montessori inspired hands-on work, kids will play games and learn about math concepts and have some fun with geometry.  String art, stories with Sir Cumference, and tessellations are just a few things we will do in this fun after school enrichment class!

FULL, but please waitlist if interested. We may have an opening soon. Thursdays: Nature Science Explorers – Explore the science of nature with a farm backdrop! We will investigate physics, biology, and chemistry, with fun experiments, inquiring into the fascinating processes that take place all around us and the connection of the earth systems.
