Your after school program is designed to meet your child’s cognitive, physical and social/emotional needs. We understand that after a day of school your child is eager to be active and socialize. You child can select from planned and unplanned outdoor athletic activities each day. Teachers lead a variety of athletic games to help your child learn good sportsmanship and the importance of physical activity. During our homework tutorial, your child can complete homework with teacher assistance. A nutritious snack is provided to encourage healthy eating habits. Weekly topics of exploration give your child the opportunity to enhance their appreciation of science, cooking, gardening, music, art and drama. Our teachers lead class meetings to invite children to offer their ideas about projects and activities for the class. Field trips provide your child with enjoyable outings with fellow classmates. Full day care is provided on school holidays for an additional fee and includes breakfast, lunch and an afternoon snack.
