Our School-Age Program

Guiding children to experience their world and pursue their interests

We provide school-age child care for school holidays, school closing days, summer day camp or when there is a need for back-up or emergency care. In our school-age program, we provide 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

Learning at Home

Treasure Hunt

You Will Need:

Brown paper, markers, “treasure” (favorite snack, small toy, old jewelry)

Directions:

First, without your child watching, hide the treasure around the house. Draw pictures of the places you want him to look. Leave picture clues that direct him to the next location -- send him outside, to the mailbox, into the basement, and all around the house. If your child can read or decode sounds, add the name of the location or a short written clue and help him sound it out. You can also use pictures from magazines as your clues instead of drawing. Glue the pictures to index cards or crinkled brown paper. To make the paper look like an authentic treasure map, soak it in tea or burn the edges of brown paper.

Tip:

This is a fun way to do afternoon snack. You can hide the clues while your child is napping, and lead him to his snack. Keep the clues; you will want to do this many times.
