After School Programs

After School Programs

The After School Program offers children a fun and safe place to be active. Our programs are based on the High Five philosophy and Healthy Child Development is fostered through the following principles:  Participation, Play, Mastery, Friends, A Caring Adult and FUNamental Movements. Children experience a wide range of opportunities through: community involvement, cooperative and sport based games, creative learning activities and building and exploration. All After School Programs run Monday to Friday from September to June for children in Kindergarden to Grade 6.
