ENRICHMENT ACADEMIES – NEW FAMILIES
Enrichment Academies, Inc (EAI) welcomes all new families to Kensington Parkwood! EAI has been managing the after school club program at KP for 7 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, right at KP’s campus 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 2021-22 School Year
Due to the fact that there are still some unknowns about the student’s return to school and full community access to school facilities, EAI will continue to offer two types of clubs this school year. On Mondays, EAI will offer outdoor Soccer and Tennis at Norwood Park as well as virtual (Zoom) coding clubs. On Mondays, Tuesday and Thursdays, EAI will offer live, in person clubs in classrooms, the gym and/or field at KP. Popular morning clubs at KP will also be available.
EAI Club Experience
Enrichment Academies will offer three sessions of clubs: fall, winter and spring. Parents can view all club opportunities, at a glance, before registering.
Club Schedule Overview
EAI will provide an overview of the upcoming fall schedule by late August and an overview of the winter & spring clubs by late 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. Notifications will be sent via KPEaglenet once the schedules are posted. Please keep in mind this is a draft schedule for the year and some revisions to the club schedules may occur.
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. 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.
Registration EAI provides a simple, easy-to- use 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.
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.
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. EAI requests that parents email the student’s club instructor ahead of time if they know that their child will not attend club on any given day. This improves the efficiency of attendance-taking to maximize cub enjoyment time.
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.
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.
