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.

What Parents are Saying

Our greatest advocates are also our closest friends.

"Back-up care is an extremely helpful benefit. It helps so much with the multiple teacher workdays and school holidays. Bright Horizons is a great place; my son always enjoys his time there. "

Homemade Butter

You Will Need:

Whipping cream, small jar (baby food size works best)

Directions:

Pour a small amount of cream into a jar. Seal tightly. Have your child shake the jar while you supervise. After several minutes of serious shaking, a clump of butter should form. Pour off the liquid (whey) and chill the butter.

Tip:

The more cream you add, the longer and harder you need to shake. You may need to help young children by starting the shaking. Older children may want to mold the butter into shapes. This can be done by spreading the butter on wax paper and then freezing or getting it very cold. Your child can then cut it with a cookie cutter or press a decoration into it.
