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

"The Staff at backup is excellent. My son only goes 3-4 times a year, yet they know who he is when we get there. They are awesome. He has gone there since he was 2 and he's now 10 and still likes going there. "

Learning at Home

Bug Hunt

You Will Need:

Non-breakable magnifying glasses, camera (optional), containers to momentarily house insects while examining them more closely

Directions:

Go for a nature walk. Talk with your child about possible places to look for insects (under rocks and leaves, on tree trunks, etc.). Capture insects in containers. Then, take pictures, observe, and release them. Take pictures of your child discovering them, too. You can refer to the photographs at a later time, too, while creating nature drawings or talking about insects and the outdoors.

Tip:

Magnifying glasses may be purchased at toy, discovery, or stationary stores. Before or after the hunt, read books about insects or look them up on the internet with your child.
