Our Before/After School Care Program offers five to twelve years old children. Here children’s can demonstrate a genuine enthusiasm for learning new concepts, make strides in gaining self-confidence. In addition to that they can develop the necessary skills to understand the world and people around them.
Project-based learning provide the backbone of the learning experiences for both educators and children. Children conduct the investigations with the assistance of educators and other community organizations. Whether it to be woodwork, artwork, sensory play, mud play, Legos and Blocks play, building structures, etc. We’ve built a solid staff of experienced and skilled educators in assisting kids with projects.
Projects may emerge from an event or a conversation. They may emerge from a problem that’s been posed to the group. They may come about as a result of a child’s interests or inquiry with the work following an unpredictable path based on the children’s interests.
Educator’s focus is not to follow a standardized curriculum with pre-determined outcomes. Instead, educators become partners in their play and help children become responsible for their work, guide them to document and report their findings, and provide opportunities for choices.
Child Development – We recognize the importance of B.C. Early Learning Framework curriculum Also ensure we are developing age appropriate activities for all of our programs.
Holistic Approach – We adapt a holistic approach that focuses on the development of the whole child.
Emergent curriculum – We are an emergent curriculum based program. We believe that children are most successful at learning when curriculum experiences account for their interests, strengths, needs, and lived realities. Educators commit to this philosophy use observations of children throughout their day as a tool for constructing curriculum content. Meaningful learning opportunities are then provided in support of key developmental skills relevant to a specific age group.
