Information & Resources

STEM FairChildren’s Enrichment at the Nantucket Community School serves children between 3 years of age through the 5th grade.

Enrichment classes are typically offered after school on a trimester basis.  Activity calendars are released in September, January and March of each year.

Classes offer an opportunity for children to learn new skills and information, explore their interests and develop their strengths.  Each session offers a variety of subjects that may include: dance, singing, theater, language, nature exploration, art, cooking, baking and science.  We are always looking to expand our offerings.  Please contact us with class ideas any time!
