Our School-Age Program

Guiding children to experience their world and pursue their interests

Our school-age programs include before- and after-school care, back-up care for school holidays and school closing days, and summer day camp. We provide school-age children with the opportunity to live, learn and socialize in a relaxed setting outside of school.

We offer a wealth of enrichment activities that engage the interests of school-age children. You may find school-age children creating a magazine or a video, playing chess or shooting hoops, tutoring each other or forming a club. Teachers are there alongside, facilitating, guiding and understanding that learning does not have to take on the tone and texture of a school day but rather be filled with fun.

What Parents are Saying

Our greatest advocates are also our closest friends.

"From the moment we drop off our child to the moment we pick her up we are comforted by the care, education and love you provide to her on a daily basis. With each day she is brighter, happier and a more well-rounded child."

Learning at Home

Sound of the Day

You Will Need:

Nothing!

Directions:

Choose a sound that you have heard your child babble frequently. Repeat this sound many times during the day, using it in words, songs, or babbling it yourself. For example. “Ba” is a common early sound. Sing “Bah Bah Black Sheep”, play with a “ball”, sit in a “box”, drink from a “bottle”, etc. Stress the sound as you talk about what you are doing during the day.

Tip:

Babies under 6 months respond to a high pitched voice. By four months they are noticing the individual sounds you make and repeating them often. They are learning how vowel and consonant sounds are used together. For children over 6 months avoid using “baby talk” but make your voice very rhythmic. After 6 or 7 months your child may make a game of imitating your sounds of speech.
