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

"You impressed me on my first visit and I continue to appreciate your wisdom supporting so many young lives at the center. You know your employees and the children well enough to form solutions that support each family. Thank you."

Fractions

You Will Need:

Ingenuity

Directions:

Notice and discuss the fractions in your child's world! When eating pizza or a pie, count the pieces of an eight piece pie, 1/8, 2/8, etc. Help your child cut their sandwich in half, fourths, thirds. Discuss with your child what part of the family they are: if you are one of six members of a family, you are 1/6th of the family. Let your child divide the dessert among your family members, i.e. if we have 5 brownies and four people, each person gets 1 and 1/4 of a brownie. Include your child in baking that asks for measurements that require fractions. Some books to read: "The Door Bell Rang" by Pat Hutchinson, "Eating Fractions" by Bruce McMillan, and the "Half Birthday Party" by Charlette Pomeranz.

Tip:

If your child does not show an interest in fractions, wait until another time.
