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

Setting the Table

You Will Need:

Silverware and napkins

Directions:

Explain to your child how to set the table, and then set it with your child. After the first few times, your child might be able to do it herself. . Ask your child how many people will be at the table and how many of each item she needs.

Tip:

Helping at mealtimes is a wonderful way to spend time together when you have chores to accomplish. Don't worry too much about correctness of placement - focus more on the concept that each person gets one plate, one cup, etc.
