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.

"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."

Learning at Home

Placemats

You Will Need:

11 x 14 paper, felt tip pens or paint, collage materials and photographs (optional)

Directions:

Have your child draw, paint, or make a collage on each paper (placemat). He might want to add photographs of each person. Help your child write each family member’s name on his/her placemat. Take the creations to be laminated at a local office store or cover with clear contact paper and use them at the dinner table.

Tip:

Make a few extra placemats for guests. Placemats also make wonderful gifts, especially if you write down the sentiments that your child dictates. If you’re making placemats with an infant, painted footprints work well.
