Our school age program is available for children aged 4 to 12. We include kindergarten-aged children (aged 4 to 6) in our school age program as part of the 25% mix permitted by the Ministry of Education.
The staff-to-child ratio for school-aged children is 1 staff member to every 15 children. We currently operate with only one school age educator and, thus, at a maximum of 15 children.
Our school age program at our Redwood Avenue site is currently only able to accept children from St. Vincent school with a very limited number of spaces available from Agnew due to licensing, staffing, and bussing limitations.
The unique individual needs of the school-aged child will be met in an informal, relaxed learning environment in which each child can make activity choices within a recreational atmosphere. The educator will provide stimulating, challenging, and fun experiences through creative art, science and exploration, language, and physical activities. These activities intertwine with the Indigenous culture, promoting identity, language, and culture retention for the children.
Our school age program does not have a designated space and uses the St. Vincent school gymnasium after school hours.
