At Chesterfield Academy, we believe “Learning is Doing”, and what better way to achieve this than to create an Enrichment Program with low teacher-child ratio that utilizes a hands-on approach to experimenting, discovering and understanding! We have developed a unique and original enrichment curriculum that at our day care that provides children the opportunity to build confidence in their abilities, as well as to explore and express their individual creativity.
The courses offered are designed to enrich and enhance your child’s learning experience at our preschool and encourage children to become lifelong learners!
Space and availability is limited. Please speak to our team for more details.

Our Cooking Class will revolve around three main topics each session: Prep Time, Recipe Review and Ingredients. Together the children will read through the recipe, gather ingredients, assign jobs and prepare the dish. Ingredients will be based on healthy choices, cultural diversity and items that will stimulate the senses. Cooking Quest focuses on keeping our bodies healthy through the food we eat, the importance of safety and cleanliness while preparing food, building confidence by following detailed instructions and creating a product the children can enjoy, share and be proud of! This class has a 1:4 ratio, will be held once per week for 40 minutes each session, and is available for day care children 2 years and older.
Classes will be comprised of children on the same academic level.
Early development of number concepts is critical in developing positive attitudes about mathematics at an early age! This class will include the use of concrete materials that children can manipulate to help concepts such as heavier/lighter, bigger/smaller, weight and mass make sense. Special methods and activities will assist children as they develop early numeracy skills. This day care class has a 1:4 ratio and will be held twice a week for 40 minutes each session and is available for children 2 years and older. Classes will be comprised of children on the same academic level.
Phonics & Reading Quest
This class will be taught using the nationally recognized Zoo-Phonics program! Zoo-Phonics uses a whole brain approach to reading and spelling. Children will learn the sounds of the alphabet and phonemic concepts through a method of presentation that is easy to understand. With a ratio of 1:4 your child’s learning style and progress will be easily monitored by our teacher, and the lessons each week will be tailored to the specific needs of each small group. This class will be held twice a week for 40 minutes each session, and is available for children 2 years and older. Classes will be comprised of children on the same academic level.
Super Science Quest
Children are naturally curious about the world around them, which makes them excellent little scientists. In Super Science, we will use the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) curriculum to explore many different subjects. These topics include “Earth and Space”, “Physical Sciences”, “Life Sciences”, and “Technology/Engineering”. Children will learn these topics through super fun and super messy hands on experiments! Super Science will introduce children to a new science topic each week. From experimenting with magnets to building basic structures, this class will captivate and stimulate the minds of every inquisitive child! This class will be held once per week and has a 1:4 ratio and is available for children 2 years and older.
