Our Afterschool Enrichment programs have been developed in a way to complement accelerated academic and physical learning. We believe our programs will equip our students with the invaluable ability to express themselves physically, intellectually, artistically and emotionally.

Our Weekly Activities
Our science program offers fun, hands-on experiences that get the kids excited about the world around them. Students learn about astronomy, chemistry, physics, earth science, animal life cycles as well as minerals and ores through experimentation and observation.
In our multifaceted technology program, students use laptops or iPads as tools to learn practical IT topics in addition to creative projects such as video game design and animation. Coding classes include using MIT’s intuitive, kid-friendly Scratch program. In Scratch, students have the opportunity to create a world of characters, animations, and special effects.
Students in our engineering program will acquire skills in communication, cooperation, intellectual curiosity, critical thinking, and creativity. Through the process of testing new ideas, students learn through trial and error. Activities include fun, hands-on challenges, such as building simple machines and robots or designing amazing bridges. Every session has a creative theme to inspire the children as they experiment with new tools.
The goal of our Art class is to inspire children to create and invent in every program. In addition to engaging art history sessions, students enjoy hands-on art projects. Students experience traditional art in addition to creating mosaics, and expressing themselves through code design and movie-making.
At Sunshine Kids Academy, we teach math concepts in a passive manner to keep kids engaged. Whether it’s calculating room sizes while blueprinting or calculating gear ratios while building a Ferris Wheel, children will learn math concepts in a fun way.
Our English language development lessons help support non-native speakers who struggle in school or simply want to perfect the subtleties of the English language. Our qualified and experienced teachers focus on grammar, pronunciation, reading comprehension, and vocabulary. Sunshine Kids Academy’s goal is to help children become well-spoken and comprehensible individuals. Our teachers achieve this by using various learning materials and delivering a balanced learning environment.
In our Japanese lessons, our experienced native or native-level educators teach Japanese to both native and non-native speakers. Students are taught listening and speaking skills through the study of daily vocabulary and practicing reading and writing both hiragana and katakana letters. We make language learning fun by incorporating songs, games and art projects to engage our young learners.
Music & Chorus
Our music classes nurture a child’s natural love of songs, instruments, movement, and imaginative play with age-appropriate activities to introduce early music concepts. Through an engaging, relatable, and fun learning process, our choral class encourages proper vocal exercises and techniques, posture, muscle control and stage presence. We also aim to boost our student’s independence, social, emotional skills, confidence, language development, and respect for one another.
Ballet & Hip-Hop Dance
Our exciting dance program introduces children to both classical ballet and modern hip-hop dance while encouraging creativity & self-expression. Dance is not only enjoyable, but a key component in educating the whole child. Children learn coordination and rhythm while exercising their bodies through fun movements. This leads to healthy hearts and happy faces.
Yoga & Gymnatics
Yoga at an early age encourages self-esteem and body awareness with a physical activity that is non-competitive which fosters cooperation and compassion instead of opposition. In addition to physical benefits, their concentration and sense of calmness and relaxation improves with practice. Gymnastics is a great way to enhance children’s flexibility, strength, coordination, and body awareness. Our studio provides ample space for a variety of agility activities.
