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

Carpet Jumping

You Will Need:

2 or more carpet squares (remnants)

Directions:

Lay two pieces of carpet a few inches apart on the floor. With your child, take turns jumping from one carpet square to the other. Keep increasing the distance between the squares. With older children, have them measure the increasing distance between the carpet squares and chart it, along with the jumping results.

Tip:

This activity provides a wonderful opportunity for imaginative play. You and your child can pretend that the distance between the two carpet squares is a river or any other liquid your child might not want to fall into.
