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.

Marbleized Gift Wrap

You Will Need:

Paper (white, freezer, butcher, or white drawing), plastic wrap, several colors of tempera paint, newspapers or vinyl tablecloth to cover work surface, trash can, smock or old shirt to protect your clothes

Directions:

Cover work surface. Have your child drip paint onto the paper, letting several colors touch. Place plastic wrap over the paint. Then have your child smooth the paper, creating designs with his or her fingers. Remove plastic wrap and allow paper to dry completely before you use as gift wrap.

Tip:

Make the paint thin to prevent clumping or flaking. You may want to tape the paper to the table to keep it from moving when your child rubs the paint around. Have the trash can handy to toss the plastic wrap once you’re done.
