We are proud to be a Licensed and Accredited Before and After School Program available to children and youth ages 6-12years. Our Before School Program provides children with a nutritious full balanced breakfast, a variety of age appropriate activities and transportation to school. Our After School Program includes transportation from school to the Boys and Girls Club and snacks that follow the Canadian Food Guide.
The program is based on free choice and child/staff directed programmed activities in designated age related areas, kitchen, gymnasium and outdoors. Some of the programs we offer are: arts/crafts, music/movement, drama/theatre, blocks/construction, language/reading, science/nature, cultural awareness, etc. Children are encouraged to join in different activities, creating their own clubs, developing their own routines, sharing their skills and deciding on activities they can help the younger children with.
We strive to provide children with an array of different skills, abilities, self esteem as well as leadership opportunities.
On PD days our program has opportunities where children and youth can adventure outside of Fort Saskatchewan, where they are able to learn new skills, build relationships and increase self esteem within new environments. Some of our popular places to go are: Harbour Pool, Pottery Guild, Millennium Place, Telus World of Science, Private theater viewings, Kids Quarterz, Let’s Play, and many more.
