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.

The teachers have contributed tremendously to our daughters' growth and development, and the feeling of leaving your children with people they adore is incredibly comforting."

I Teach: School-Age

Teaching Since: 2009

I love teaching children because: It allows me to engage and teach our new generation of movers and shakers in society. Being able to interact with children and watch them grow into compassionate, smart, and independent people is a bonus!

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.
