Enrichment Programs are immediately following daily school hours and are from 12:00-2:00.  Students have lunch, a fun STEAM activity, outside free play, and one of our special rotating enrichment programs: Fitness Fun, Music and Movement, Smiling Easel Art, Gardening, and Little Scientists.

STEAM early childhood curriculum encourages learning while tapping into children's natural interests in the following areas: Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math.  We build, garden, and more!  Children rotate into STEAM activities along with outside free play when they are not in the day's scheduled enrichment activity.

Fitness Fun encourages use of both large and small gross motor skills while engaging children in fun physical fitness activities.  Kids use hoops, scooters, and more!

Preschool Music is a developmentally appropriate music class that includes instruments and traditional songs.

Art with The Smiling Easel guides children in art activities to encourage creativity and engage children's artistic sides.  Children also learn a little art history!

Little Scientists is a hands-on enrichment where children explore scientific principles through exciting experiments.

Gardening is our newest enrichment and the children will have fun learning about nature and seeing where their food comes from.


Extended Day with STEAM 2:00-4:30 (1:30-4:30 2021-22 school year)

Extended Day is offered every afternoon from 2:00 until 4:30.  Children will have the opportunity to play outdoors and will also cook, sing songs, work on crafts, and participate in science activities.  Children who need to nap will have the opportunity during this time; non-nappers have a little quiet down time with books or puzzles during the first part of the Extended Day time.  


A Note from our Director

At Memorial Presbyterian Day School, we believe in giving children the opportunity to grow, explore, and learn at their own pace. We facilitate the growth of the whole child:  intellectual/academic, social, emotional, physical, and spiritual.  We realize that each child is unique; we look to complement individual needs and work to reach each child's next step. At PDS, we have high curriculum standards and flexible hours to further enrich your child's day. We have highly qualified, experienced, and loving teachers with small classroom sizes so all children receive the attention they need. I look forward to hearing from you!
