Enrichment Classes

The CDC offers a wide array of enrichment classes for kids ages 2-5. Classes range from art and language to cooking, and much more. Registration is required.  Typically, the instructor for the enrichment class will come to your child’s class, pick them up, and bring them to enrichment classes and then bring them back to their classroom. If you prefer to bring your child yourself, you must notify the office of your choice as well as the enrichment instructor.


ONLINE REGISTRATION

Online registration is EASY! Simply click the button at right to get started. Once at the registration page, search for the classes you wish to register for. Enrichment classes typically fill quickly so please register early.
