School Age Learning Areas

The School age child care program (SACC) is a cross between a social club, arts and craft class and a media center. We try not to duplicate the curriculum being taught in school.

We provide enrichment activities and an outlet for energy, creativity and emotions. After a hard day at school, often quiet activities are favored and books or just resting are welcome.

School age children are welcome on days off, snow days and during summer break.

The daily schedule may vary due to variation in times for departure to and return from school. The size and age of the group as well as weather conditions are considered in arranging SACC activities.
