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.

I Spy with My Little Eye

You Will Need:

Imagination

Directions:

Start the game by selecting an object in the room (or car) and give clues to your child so he can try to guess what the object is. Say, “I spy with my little eye, something that is… (give a hint of color, shape, use, etc). Then, have your child ask up to 20 "yes" or "no" questions to see if he can figure out what it is. Then, switch and have your child pick an object while you ask the questions.

Tip:

This is a wonderful game to play while commuting or during waiting times.
