School Age Program

Our Maple Grove and Oakhill Before & After School clubs are exciting programs for children from JK to Grade 6. Our Registered Early Childhood Educators provide stimulating activities, clubs and social opportunities designed specifically for the School Aged Child.  A nutritious morning and after school snack is also provided.

The younger children in this program are beginning to develop their own autonomy and desire an environment where there is an abundance of options and openness for them to make choices to suit their own individual interests.

The older children (aged 9 – 12) feel the need to be independent and in charge of their own environment. Our experienced program leaders offer children customized experiences to fulfill their different learning needs.  Our tailor-made special interest clubs provide ample opportunities to cultivate their individual interests while promoting social interactions.

 

Some of the Interest Centres Include:

  • A homework area where the children can complete the day’s school work in a separate, quiet and well-equipped room with assistance from our program leaders.
  • A library and writing area with a wide variety of reading materials ranging from: comic books, biographies, non-fiction, chapter books, research resources and more.
  • A gross motor area where the children are free to participate in organized games.
  • An artistic area for the children to express themselves through a wide range of medium and tools and the opportunity to make a variety of cool crafts.
  • A science/sensory station for the young scientist or the child who likes to get their hands messy; we offer unique science experiments and slippery/slimy sensory bins
  • The home living centre offers a social area for role playing, small group cooperation, and a space to relax in.
