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 all for what you do with my child. I am amazed at how much he has developed and learned. Being a working mom is such a hard thing sometimes but it makes it so much easier when you know your child is being loved and nurtured by truly caring individuals. Thanks for being his mom away from mom."

Learning at Home

Family Recipes

You Will Need:

Recipe cards, divider cards for a box, recipe box for each child or family member

Directions:

Have your child think about her favorite meals and foods. He may research ideas in magazines, cookbooks, or your recipe box. Then you or he can copy the recipe (or cut it out of the magazine) and glue it to the card. If your child can't copy the whole recipe, he still may be able to write the name of the food. Have him add it to his own recipe box and repeat with additional recipes.

Tip:

Foods often bring back memories. Talk about your favorite meals as a child. What did your mother or father cook for special occasions? What was/is your favorite food? Pass on traditional family recipes to your child and help him learn how to make them. Use the recipes your child finds to help plan menus, especially for holidays. Ask him to choose a vegetable dish, or a bread, etc. Encourage him to help with the cooking, too.
