New Parents

Enrichment Academies, Inc (EAI) welcomes all new parents to CCES!  EAI has been managing the after school club program at CCES for six years.  It is EAI’s mission to provide a rich, rewarding and diverse after school experience to students, parents and educators with a variety of price points, session times and days offered. Most clubs are offered directly after the school day and provide students opportunities to explore new activities, develop skills, exercise and connect socially with a greater cross section of their school peers outside the classroom.


News for 2017-18 School Year

Thank you for participating in the annual EAI Club Survey. This is an invaluable tool to help improve our After School Club Program at CCES. Based upon parent survey feedback, EAI will be offering new clubs and bringing back popular ones. We will be adding dance, maker clubs, core strength training and additional art clubs. Photography will be returning as well as the most popular sports clubs. Since CCES now serves grades 3-5, division of grades for some clubs will be different than in past years.

One additional item to note is the Activity Bus scheduling. This fall the Activity Bus will be running on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 4:40pm. Dismissal options for Monday, Wednesday and Friday will be Wonders, walking (without crossing Connecticut Ave) and parent/care-giver pick up.


EAI Club Experience

Enrichment Academies will offer club three sessions of clubs: fall, winter and spring.  One of our goals is to give the parents and students an entire view of the clubs and activities offered at the school under one umbrella.  This helps parents view all club opportunities at a glance without registering for a club and then finding out a week later an additional activity has been added to the school’s schedule.

Club Schedule Overview

EAI will provide an overview of the upcoming fall schedule by mid-August and an overview of the winter & spring clubs by mid-fall.  This enables parents to start planning their child’s schedule with other activities.  These overviews will detail which clubs (with appropriate grade levels) will be running on each day of the week.  Please keep in mind this is a draft schedule for the year and some revisions to the club schedules may occur.

Club Catalog

EAI provides a club catalog to all students a week prior to the start of registration.

In our experience the catalog generates anticipation, excitement and interest amongst the students about upcoming club opportunities.  The catalog will be provided to students at school to be sent home in your child’s book bag.  EAI encourages students to be part of the club selection process and collaborate with their friends in exploring club opportunities. The catalog provides details on the online registration process, club descriptions, club dates, pricing and additional club policies for parents.

Open /Early Bird Enrollment

EAI offers open enrollment, with a specific registration start date. Club fees for the first four days of each registration period will feature discounted Early Bird pricing. We urge all parents to take advantage of early bird enrollment so minimum enrollment numbers can be met and accurate rosters can be distributed to instructors prior to club start dates. After the four-day Early Bird window, online club registration will be available at an additional $10 per club.

Club Communication

In an effort to provide proactive feedback on club activities, EAI requests that each club instructor send weekly emails (or eight week club overview) to parents of enrolled students to inform them of events in their children’s club experience.  In addition, EAI provides an email (or phone call if needed) to parents of absent students.  This helps parents and students adapt to the weekly after school clubs routine.

Registration

EAI provides a simple, easy-to-use online registration system.  This system provides parents a weekly calendar view of the clubs along with specific club meeting dates and times (in case their club catalog is not in arms reach!)  Website address and more details will be provided closer to the start of fall registration.

Annual Registration Fee 

A registration fee of $25 is required during each students' first club registration of the school year.  This is an annual fee per student per school year.  Once paid, subsequent club registrations for that student during that school year will not incur this fee. This revenue from this fee helps offset the cost of providing a quality after school club program. EAI does exempt Scholarship students from the annual registration fee.

Scholarship Program

EAI is pleased to continue the ASC scholarship program put in place by the CCES PTA.  100% of all ASC scholarship donations generously given by the CCES parent community will continue to go towards supporting ASC scholarship students.

Parent Feedback

EAI welcomes and encourages feedback from parents.  Your input helps to build a stronger program as clubs can be added or improved in subsequent sessions.   All correspondence should be directed to Gabrielle@Enrichment-Academies.com
