Early Childhood Program
Our developmentally appropriate, challenging educational curriculum is based on knowledge and understanding of how children grow and develop socially, emotionally, cognitively, and physically, and integrates learning opportunities with high expectations. We focus on recognizing and expanding each child’s interest, strengths and learning abilities. Play is an essential part of our childhood and is therefore an integral part of our curriculum.
After School Program/ Winter Camp/ Holiday Camp
School’s out! Every day our school buses pick up children from local schools and bring them to our doors. The center is buzzing with activity and excitement as kids enjoy a productive afternoon – there is never a dull moment here!
When school is closed, we are here to offer your children much of the fun of Summer Camp! This is an option for a full day program from 8 AM – 6 PM which includes dance, science, swimming, and much more! As always, a hot kosher lunch and snack are provided. Holiday camp is free for children currently enrolled in our After School Program.
The Lenny Krayzelburg Swim Academy utilizes the SwimRight® Method which is composed of 7 levels. Using the SwimRight Method, we utilize the swim-float-swim technique as our foundation, and focus on providing children with the knowledge of confidence and safety in and around the water. From these basic skills we take students from beginning stages of swimming all the way to learning all 4 strokes, freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke and butterfly.
Welcome to the exciting world of competitive swimming. We believe that the most important part of your child’s swimming experience is that he/she learns about him/her-self while enjoying the sport and learning swimming skills. Our mission is to provide a healthy, safe environment which encourages learning and fun while developing technical skills and an intense desire to realize each individual’s potential. Pre-team, Junior Team, and Senior Team.
