About nex gen's
While going to school is certainly one way to learn, there are so many other ways to learn, and topics to discover. To this end, New Gen is proud to announce the launch of our brand new Enrichment Class program that is chock full of STEAM activities offered in a variety of ways including in-person at our brand new Center, at people's homes, or at a local park and virtually.
Enrichment classes provide ways for children to make discoveries, use critical thinking, teamwork and more to learn and unearth newfound skills. Enrichment classes also provide children with the tools needed to reveal passions and skill-sets they may not have known existed before. Providing children with the opportunity to try new things and evolve and change through enriching experiences is one of the bests gifts you can offer a child.
Nex Gen's classes are taught by instructors that are experts in the programs they are sharing. Each has specialized enriching talents. From doing fun science experiments, to learning new art formats, and discovering how to cook new dishes and build with LEGOs, and more -- Nex Gen offers something for everyone.
While we have initially launched our Enrichment program with a small menu of offerings, we will continue launching new classes on a regular basis. In fact, 5 new classes were recently added to the mix: Intro to Traditional Art, Watercolor Painting & Meditation, LEGO Building Tips and Tricks, LEGO Stop Motion Filming and LEGO Art Challenges.
Here is a full list of our current class offerings (descriptions are below):
Intro to Traditional Art
Story Time Comes Alive
Traveling Taste Buds Cooking Series
Watercolor Painting & Meditation
LEGO Building Tips and Tricks
LEGO Stop Motion Filming
LEGO Art Challenges.
In addition, there are MORE WAYS to enjoy Nex Gen's enrichment classes:
You can add a weekly enrichment class on to an existing learning pod that takes place once the school day is over. Any of the current classes and more are available.
You can create a structured socialization enrichment pod just for weekly enrichment classes.
You can host a one-time structured socialization playdate or get-together.
You can host a themed enrichment birthday party.
NEX GEN offers classes: in-person, virtually and in open outdoor spaces, as well as at people's homes. All COVID safety precautions are adhered to including: classes are small, student and teacher temperatures are checked before anyone can enter class, masks must be worn at all times, all surfaces and materials are disinfected many times a day. For information on how Nex Gen is handling COVID, click here.
In addition, we'd love your input. Please take a moment to drop us a note letting us know of any classes your child(ren) would like to take that we are not currently offered. Please send email to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Also, if you or someone you know has an enriching skill they'd like to teach to children, please email us at email@example.com. We look forward to hearing from you.
NEX GEN'S CLASSES ARE NOW AVAILABLE VIRTUALLY AND IN-PERSON!
Many of our classes are now being offered in-person and virtually. In-person class sizes are small, and are filling up fast! Masks must be worn. We are taking all COVID-19 precautions. (Click here to learn more about how NexGen is handling COVID).
Please let us know what class format you prefer when calling to register. Virtual classes will take place on the same day, at the same time, as live in-person classes. If you sign up for a virtual class(es), we will send you a link to use on the day of the live class(es). For those classes available virtually, we will have a packet of supplies available for pick up so your child(ren) can participate right alongside the live class.
YOU CAN NOW PURCHASE NEX GEN'S CLASSES AS A COHESIVE PACKAGE OF FOUR OR AS ONE-OFFS!
At Nex Gen, we know that there are only so many hours in a day and that your time is precious. In addition, in these ever-changing times, sometimes it is difficult to commit to a four-class schedule. So, to meet your needs, we are now offering our classes in two ways: 1) As 4-week packages; and 2) As one-off sessions. While the classes are meant to be taken as a unit of four, no prior knowledge from the preceding class is needed. Please let us know if you prefer a package of 4 classes, or if signing up
for 1 class, please let us know your prefered week.
NEW CLASS REGISTRATION SYSTEM COMING SOON!
Please bear with us as we wait for our online registration system to be completed. We know it is a pain to have to call and register for classes, (we don't like doing it either), but until our new system is up and running, this is the only way for us to process registrations. In the meantime, please call 201-618-7444 to register.
If you really hate calling to register, please email us your interest and we will be in touch. Please include your name, phone number and town, your child(ren)'s name(s), age(s), and grade(s), and the class name and format of the class(es) you'd like to register for. Thank you! Send email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
