Supplements to Academics

Here at Countryside we have special guests who come once a week, after 3:30pm when our curriculum ends. The children love these classes and enjoy going each week.

These enrichment classes are offered in the Preschool Building after school. These classes are not included in Countryside's tuition and have separate monthly fees. Information is available in the entryway on the bulletin board next to our Preschool Classroom.
