Enrichment Program (Up, Up Exploration)

We are pleased to offer The River Academy’s Up, Up Exploration after school class for Kinder-Prep and Kindergarten students. This program has the same standard of excellence in care, culture, and Biblical foundation that is a mark of every classroom at The River Academy.

Up, Up Exploration is intended to enrich your child’s learning experience through play, fine motor skills and exploratory learning through activity stations.

Up, Up Exploration is well suited for parents who desire a safe, convenient, comfortable, happy place for their young student to play and interact with other children.

After the dismissal of the Kinder-Prep and Kindergarten class, those students staying for the after-school exploration class would follow a schedule similar to the one outlined below:
