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

Investigating Absorption

You Will Need:

Egg carton, eye dropper, cup of water, and assorted small objects that either do or do not absorb water (such as buttons, marbles, plastic figurines, rubber or plastic bath toys, cotton balls, fabric, sponges, paper towel, napkin, toilet paper, etc.)

Directions:

Start by showing your child how a towel absorbs water and explain the concept. Then, have your child put the objects in the compartments of the egg carton. Using the eye dropper, have your child add a few drops of water on each item. After discovering which items absorb water, ask him to group the items accordingly.

Tip:

Relate this exploration to real life situations. When there is a spill, ask your child what can be used to clean it up.
