Trellis After School Enrichment
An Enrichment Program with Roots in The Children’s Garden
Welcome to Trellis, a magical after school enrichment program for 6 – 9 year olds focused on Citizenship, Creativity, Nature, and Community. Trellis is full of surprises including wonderful field trips and/or visitors where children learn about a remarkable person from our community. The first hour of each session begins in a beautiful forest, rain or shine. This time is spent building forts, mapping trails, learning plant names, looking for and identifying animal tracks, cleaning up our forest, clearing trails and running off pent up energy and playing incredibly fun games! Fantastic art projects are a regular part of Trellis, as well as other creative endeavors which teach children real life skills. For instance, teachers lead dinner table discussions during snack time which focus on a different value each week, while also reinforcing manners and polite conversation in groups. Trellis kids develop confidence and trust in the small group environment. Recognizing the importance of parent bonding and community building, we plan at least one event each quarter that includes the whole family. Find out more about the staff.
