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

Art in a can

You Will Need:

An empty can with a lid- such as a coffee can, Pringles can or powdered formula can-some paint, a piece of paper, scissors and a round ball or object (a golf ball works well as well as a marble or small wiffle ball)

Directions:

Clean out the can and then cut the paper to fit inside. Drop some paint into the bottom of the can-or roll the ball into the paint & drop into the bottom-and put the lid on. Seal the lid with tape and hand it to your child. Once they are done rolling, dropping, pulling and exploring open the can up and show them the designs the ball created on the paper!

Tip:

This can be done with infants of any age! Lay them on the floor in front of the can and let them push it, prop them up in a boppy pillow and let them kick the bin with their feet or let an older infant roll and drop it off of a low table. Talk to them about what the can is doing "Look! You rolled it across the floor" or "Did you hear that noise when it fell on the floor"? Let them explore the can- the different sounds it makes when you tap the bottom and the top, try to pull the tape off and of course, try to chew on the lid or bottom! When you take the paper out of the can, talk to them about their creation as well and show it to them. This is a really fun project but with little mess!
