After-School Enrichment
Jahn partners with several local vendors to provide after-school enrichment programs for students at an additional cost to parents.  These sessions are usually for an hour after school, once a week.  

Green Explorers Club:  Each week your child will explore sustainability through hands-on activities that demonstrate the importance of taking care of our planet. Topics this session will include: weather, the water cycle, endangered species, mangrove forests, climate change, sustainable food, Chicago wildlife, and more. Each class is tailored to provide students with a growing curiosity about the environment so as they grow into future engineers, artists, doctors, farmers, clothing designers, presidents, or whatever they want to be, they will have the basic tools they need to incorporate sustainability practices into their initiatives.

Register here for Tuesday, 10:30-11:30am: 3 year olds (Fall Session)

Register here for Tuesday, 3:00-4:00pm: 4-9 year olds (Fall Session)


Unicoi Art Studio: Unicoi Art Studio has been providing exceptional art activities for kids in Chicago since 1999. We were voted the best art classes in the city for 2008 and 2009, by the parents of Chicago (Nickelodeon’s Parents Picks Award). Unicoi’s mission is to “draw” out the imagination in every child, with projects designed to be informative, engaging and fun for children ages 3-15. We use premium quality artist materials, so at a young age the students experience rich colors, unusual textures and a variety of unique materials. Our teaching philosophy is for children to be able to use their creativity to explore the subjects that interest them and for our teachers to provide the safe and structured environment to support their exploration.
