Cardinal Kids Fall 2019 Programming

Cardinal Kids was founded in 2018 by four Wesleyan students who believe that all children should have access to quality extra-curricular enrichment. They hope to create a safe and inclusive space in which all kids feel free to explore, express, and ask questions. They also seek to provide teacher training and experience for Wesleyan students interested in going into education.

Using their unique set of skills, each teacher at Cardinal Kids adapts their on-campus work and passions into fun, kid-friendly lessons. Lessons are taught several days a week at RJ Julia Bookstore, Oddfellows Playhouse, North End Action Team, and Snow School.
