Extracurricular Opportunities

At The Learning Tree, we partner with amazing local organizations to bring you a variety of extracurricular activity choices. We realize how busy schedules can become during the work week and how valuable your weekends are for enjoying quality time with your family. Our extra-curricular options give children a chance to enjoy activities that interest them during the school day. This saves time in the evenings and on the weekends for families to relax, travel, and spend time together!
All extra-curricular options are available by choice and require an additional fee. These include LaPetite Dance Academy and Soccer Shots. Payments are made directly to each individual organization either on-line or in a drop box located in our back building.

Please read more about each of these incredible programs below.

LaPetite Dance Academy

La Petite Dance was created to bring dance as an art form to young children during their most influential and formative years. The purpose of La Petite Dance is to help children express themselves creatively, develop self confidence and self esteem, develop motor skills and coordination and most of all to instill a life-long love of dance.

Our preschool program offers traditional Ballet and Tap classes on-site for 3 to 5 year-old children throughout the Wilmington, NC area. A dance professional will visit your child’s preschool weekly and conduct a 45 minute dance class on-site.

In addition to our popular preschool classes we offer school-age classes in Ballet, Jazz and Broadway style Tap at our studio location. All classes are combination classes according to the child’s age and level of dance training and ability.

La Petite Dance is popular with Wilmington parents because of the convenience we offer with on-site preschool classes as well as the noncompetitive atmosphere of our school-age studio classes. Most importantly all choreography, music and costumes are age appropriate and tastefully selected for our end-of-the-year Spring Performance which is the “highlight” of every child’s dance year!

Soccer Shots

Soccer Shots Cape Fear is a character education/introduction to soccer program perfect for children looking to learn a sport in a non-competitive way.  Each week, we play fun games and learn skills based around our character word of the week, including such words as respect, enthusiasm and confidence.  Each week has a theme.  We may visit the farm, travel to outer space or be super heroes on soccer island.

Coach Scott and the team of trained soccer instructors individually work with each child to ensure it’s a highlight of their week.  Our goal is to provide a growth experience for each child each week.  We are honored to work with the children at The Learning Tree each Friday morning.  The classes cost $50/monthly and come with a jersey and prizes at the end of each season.  Children are able to join any time and opt out at any time as well. ​
