School Age Program
Fun with Friends
Our School Age program is desiged for children aged 6 to 12 years. The children are provided with an environment where they are able to continue their development before and after school. The school age children are actively involved in guiding the teachers to plan and implement activities based on their interests. The children develop their skills through play in clubs such as culinary, homework, creative/science, sports and games clubs. Some examples of what they learn through these clubs are how to maintain a healthy life style, team work, self confidence, individuality and opportunities to build life-long friendships.
We adjust our operating schedules annually to meet the children’s school schedule. Professional development days, Christmas holidays, March Break and Summer become full days for our School Age program at the Children’s Place . We are familiar with each Board’s school closure days and we plan our activities in accordance to those needs. We provide meals and snacks for this age group, as we do for our younger children. So parents, lunches are not necessary!
A Summer Full of Fun and Learning
with peace of mind for you!
School age children who are use to learning all day, can often find themselves “bored” after only a few days out of school. We have planned our summer program particularly with this in mind. Our summers at The Children’s Place are full of fun active field trips, special guests and daily activities that keep your children engaged, relaxed and happy for these warm months. One of the highlights every Summer is a 2 night campout. Each year, our dedicated staff go above and beyond to devote their time and energy to planning a fun filled campout for the School Age children.
Our rates include:
We provide meals and snacks, field trips, special visitors and an annual campout. Ask about our Extra curricular opportunities and our dinner program.
No scrambling for care on Snow days, PD days, Christmas/March Break and Summer, we offer a year round program!
Our School Age program has the added opportunity for children to move freely throughout the center choosing where they would like to be. We have a variety of clubs available for their choice.
Culinary Club teaches the children the basics of safe tools in the kitchen and food preparation.
Homework club is offered during the school year and is a quiet space where children can complete homework with the support of a staff.
Creative/Science club offers a mix of opportunities for both creative expression and exploration.
Sports/Physical Activity Club
Our sports and physical activitiy club is the perfect way to burn off energy, stay fit and have fun!
The games club is a laid back environment with a little healthy competition. With air hockey, fooseball, ping pong and arcade basketball, this club has it all!
