Kids Can Explore Various Interests at the Weston Community Center

The Weston Community Center offers an exciting menu of enrichment courses for children and teens this season, especially with the introduction of its newest program, Gourmet Kids.

With separate classes for children ages three to five and five to eight, Gourmet Kids is a fun way to inspire aspiring chefs and introduce picky eaters to new foods. In this unique and engaging hands-on cooking program, children will discover the importance of being healthy from the inside out as they learn good nutrition habits and the importance of eating a balanced diet. The class meets on Thursday afternoons. 

Children can express their creativity in Cartoon Club. All skill levels, from ages five to 18, will study famous characters before creating their own character and comic book. In addition to learning cartooning technique, children will expand their imaginations as they master the art of storytelling through drawing and character development. This club meets every Tuesday. 

The popular Code Explorers program returns with a focus on 3D Animation and Programming this session. Young minds will explore engineering, computer science and technology by working with 3D animation to create digital storytelling projects and character animation. The STEM class meets on Monday afternoons with different sessions for three age groups, from five to 14. 

Chess Club is another way to motivate children to think outside the box. All skill levels can participate in this program which develops memory skills, self-confidence, intuition, imagination, logical and critical thinking, concentration and reasoning skills. Children, ages five to 18, can meet on Monday afternoons for Chess Club.

Other programs to help expand young minds include Fun in Spanish, for ages two to five, and a SAT Preparation Class for high school students. Children can develop physical strength, stamina, posture and self-confidence in Youth Karate, Posture & Alignment Class for teens (and adults) or Superstars Dance and Baton. Kidokinetics offers five different sports classes this season, with programs for infants through elementary school. Babykinetics is a great way to introduce families to the Kidokinetics program. The course is free for infants and their parents or caregivers. Children then advance through the program with Kidokinetics, Jr. and Kidokinetics. In the Sportskinetics sports clinics children will learn the basics of a variety of sports in a safe, non-competitive environment. Running and conditioning, as well as game play and drills, are all part of the fun in this fitness class.
