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.

Charades

You Will Need:

Imagination

Directions:

Alternate acting out an animal, the name of a children's book, movie, or song with your child. Whoever isn’t doing the acting can try to guess what is being acted out. The actor or actress can give non-verbal clues and hints.

Tip:

Animals are easiest for young children to guess. You can also play charades with teams.
