Lunch Hour Enrichment Program

Available For Currently Enrolled Explorers Students Only

We are excited to announce that starting this school year, Natural Start Preschool will be offering our Explorers students the option of attending a Lunch Hour Enrichment Class from 12:00-1:00pm, immediately following our regular preschool day. This is an optional add-on class specifically designed for concurrently enrolled EXPLORERS students who are developmentally and behaviorally ready for an extra hour of Pre-Kindergarten enrichment activities (please see *NOTE below). Students bring their own lunch and spend an additional hour of preschool time exploring nature, playing, and engaging in small-group activities related to science, art, music, pre-reading, and pre-math.  


*NOTE: If you are unsure whether this class would be a good fit for your child, please feel free to email us with any questions or concerns.   


We will only be able to accommodate a MAXIMUM OF 12 STUDENTS PER DAY in the Lunch Hour Enrichment Class, so please register early!  


Two Classes are Available:  


• Monday/Friday Class (for 3-day and 5-day Explorers students) 

• Tuesday/Thursday Class (for 2-day and 5-day Explorers students) 

• 5-Day Explorers students may register for one or both classes.  

• There will be NO Lunch Hour Enrichment Classes on Wednesdays due to Bellevue School District early dismissal. 

• Lunch Hour Enrichment Classes are not available for Junior Explorers students.   


Important Registration Information: 


• REGISTRATION OPENS AT 9:00am ON THURSDAY, AUGUST 30th. At that time you may register your child for Session 1 of the Lunch Hour Enrichment Class (see dates and class numbers below).  

• The initial registration must be done in person at the front desk of the South Bellevue Community Center.  

• As with all SBCC-affiliated programs, registration is done on a first-come, first-served basis. A waitlist will be maintained by SBCC when classes are full.
