Early-Out Think Team program

CLINTON — Enrollment is now being taken for the first session of the Felix Adler Children’s Discovery Center’s new weekly afterschool program, “Wednesday Early-Out Think Team.”

It’s a great place for your child’s brain to be during Wednesday early-out days.

This educational program is open to children in kindergarten through third grade. Space is limited. With a curriculum designed and led by professional educators, the Think Team program will introduce children to many different topics in science, history, math and culture — all taught with a literacy emphasis.

Participants will keep their own journals and share their writing in small groups. Positive communication and respectful behavior will be the rule, and snacks will be included.

There will be three sessions of Wednesday Early-Out Think Team offered during the school year, which will coincide with Clinton School District’s trimester schedule. Session I will run on Wednesdays, from 2 to 3:30 p.m., Sept. 4 through Nov. 6.

Children may ride the bus from their respective schools or parents may bring them at 2 p.m. Dismissal and pick-up time is promptly at 3:30 p.m. The cost of this program is $75 per session. Children’s Discovery Center members receive a 10 percent discount. For more information or registration contact the Children’s Discovery Center at 243-3600 or email to info@adlerdiscoverycenter.org.

The Discovery Center is 501 (3)(c) non-profit children’s museum affiliated with the international Association of Children’s Museums. Its mission is to provide a safe and positive environment for families to discover the world by exploring arts, culture, literacy, and science through educational programs and interactive exhibits.
