Science and Drawing and Chess, Oh My!

From engineering to sewing, graphic design to ooey, gooey slime, Community Education Youth Enrichment classes and activities are important to the development of all children. These after school activities can enhance the classroom experience in a non-threatening, fun environment.

A child that participates in enrichment classes reaps benefits that include life skills of all kinds.  Self-confidence is built while learning negotiation, cooperation and conflict resolution skills in a safe and relaxed environment.  Experience working on a team expands a child’s learning experience by exposing the child to other points of view, or different answers to a question.  Working toward a common goal and focusing on the group, rather than the individual, is a life lesson that is necessary to be successful in most environments your child will face.

Creativity and problem solving is also taught through enrichment classes by providing outlets for children to pursue their interests and curiosity.

Encourage your child to get involved in after school enrichment classes.  They not only will help with preparing your child to become responsible adults, but may also unlock a world of interest that could possibly continue into adulthood.  Farmington Area Community Education has summer enrichment opportunities available through August and watch for our fall catalog to be delivered mid August.  Find all our opportunities at
