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.

"Thank you for everything you do for our son and our family! The ongoing communication you provide to us about our son's daily activities, interactions with other children, and growth experiences help us to feel better equipped as parents."

Houseplants

You Will Need:

A hardy houseplant (ivy, aloe vera, etc.), a small watering can

Directions:

Help your child choose plants to care for. When you are watering your plants, your child can care for her plants. Talk about how much water the plants need. Have your child measure that amount of water into the watering can. Let your child decide where the plants will get the best amount of sun and fertilize the plant. “What do you think the plant food will do to the plant? What does food do to you? (it makes you grow). What would happen to your plant if you didn’t feed or water it? Do you think your plant looks any greener?” Dust the leaves when needed – “Can your plant get air with dust on it? What happens to you if you can’t breathe?”

Tip:

Use nonpoisonous plants. Some common plants - poinsettias and philodendrons - are mildly poisonous. Other plants - shamrock and dieffenbachia - are highly poisonous.
