Our Before/After school program provides care for children ages 4yrs -12yrs. We offer daily programs that supports growth and development based on the children’s interest and needs. The philosophy of the program is that children learn best through purposeful play-based experience that fosters and support our program statement.
We view each child as being competent, capable and curious. Our program is built on the foundations of belonging, well-being, engagement and expression. These foundations are a vision for all children’s future potential and what they should experience every day.
Strong connections with families, educators and the environment are vital for the healthy growth and development of young children in our program. These will be cultivated through the four foundations for learning, as outlined in “How Does Learning Happen”, Ontario Pedagogy for the Early Years:
Programming is done on a daily basis, based on the needs and interests of the children. The children learn and master through activities and learning opportunities provided for them. This is done in various learning areas. Quality Before and After School care is a triangle of programming in which education and recreation is woven with care. This triangle of programming allows children to increase and build essential skills that they need to become adults.
