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

Rice Play

You Will Need:

1 or more pounds of uncooked rice, large plastic bowl or container, wooden spoons, measuring spoons, plastic cups

Directions:

Put rice in the container, along with the cups and spoons. Place the container on the kitchen floor for your child to practice spooning, pouring, and scooping. Encourage your child to think about what he is doing by saying things like, “How many scoops does it take to fill up the cup?”;“What does the rice feel like?”; “How is it different from the rice we eat?”

Tip:

Place the container on a tray or piece of cloth -- rice will likely spill on the floor.  Since rice is slippery, keep a broom handy to sweep the floor often   and explain to your child how important it is to keep the rice in the kitchen. This activity will give your child the opportunity to be with you while you are working in the kitchen -- he can even pretend to cook dinner!
