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.

Learning at Home

Letters and Notes

You Will Need:

Paper and pens or a computer and printer, a clipboard or lap desk for writing in the car, envelopes, stamps

Directions:

Work with your child to send letters and notes to friends and relatives. If your child is using a paper and pen or pencil, you can write the words that he dictates or write his descriptions of the pictures he draws. He also might be able to copy or write the words himself.  If you have a computer, sit with him and take turns typing.

Tip:

Have older children address and stamp their own envelopes. Writing to a special person is a delightful ritual.
