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.

"We could not be happier with the quality care that these teachers provide to our daughter. She is so happy when we drop her off and pick her up - we know she loves spending time with them. It makes being a working parent a lot easier to know that such she is in such great, caring hands!"

Learning at Home

Sensory Bottles

You Will Need:

Empty clear plastic bottles (small water or soda bottles work great), rice, beans, small stones, feathers, small household items, masking tape.

Directions:

Fill a bottle up ¾ with one of the materials and seal it tightly with tape. Sealing it tightly is important because a baby can choke on a loose bottle cap. Play with your baby or toddler by rolling, shaking, and tapping the bottle. Explore the different sounds that the bottle makes. Talk about the colors and weights (heavy/light).

Tip:

If you see the tape starting to peel, fix it immediately. If you have a glue gun handy, you can also use that to attach the lid to the bottle. Infants may also enjoy watching water in the bottle that has been dyed with food coloring. Adding glitter or small confetti stars to the water can add interest, as well. Closely supervise – only allow your young child to play with the bottles when you are around.
