Enrichment Classes

Cougar Cub Academy Enrichment classes begin each year at the end of September. Registration forms are available at the front office.

Ballet Bees is a creative movement and music enrichment program that offers activities that enhance the development of the young child’s intellectual and physical abilities. In creative movement and music class, the child learns basic creative dance movements related to songs and stories, as well as the use of simple musical instruments and props. With a unique Creative Movement Syllabus based upon a combination of Anne Green Gilbert’s BrainDance, and the syllabi of the Danish, English, French, Italian, and Russian Schools of Ballet, the child’s intellectual, creative and physical aptitudes abound. Classes are weekly 30 minute sessions. Twelve week session fee: $150.00. 

Yummy,Yummy is a fun culinary experience for your young chefs. Each week we will be reading a book and then making a yummy treat. Your little chefs will learn about cleanliness, utensils, and kitchen safety. Classes are weekly 45 minute sessions. Eight week session fee: $100.00.

The Instructor for both Ballet Bees and Yummy, Yummy, Ms. Danielle Wester, holds a B.F.A. Degree in Dance from Cornish College of the Arts, and has been a performing artist for over twenty years. For many years she has been a member of the Tacoma City Ballet School faculty, specializing in Creative Movement, Elementary Ballet, and Pre-Ballet classes.

From Parents at PELC:

"You and the staff are like family. You have provided not only a safe and sound environment for her learning, but you have given her the hope and education of Jesus as well as love as if our daughter was your own. Your staff has consistently amazed me with their thoughtful and kind support and I will not forget the many friends I have made with her teachers and breakers. Truly exceptional people at CCS-PELC. You should all be proud of what you do, we are incredibly grateful for the care we have received.  I pray that God continues to do wonderful things at CCS-PELC and blesses your whole staff."

"My son is very outgoing and loves to say "Good Morning" to everyone when we arrive and all the teachers/staff are always so kind to him even if they are busy with something else at the time.  He gets so excited when they know his name, with all the kids there it amazes me how they all do know his name!  I'm very excited for the positive experience in the years to come with Cascade Christian!"
