OUR PROGRAM STRIVES TO REACH THREE GOALS :
1. TO ENRICH, EDUCATE AND CARE FOR STUDENTS, IN A SAFE CATOLIC ENVIRONMENT.
We use a wide variety of creative activities, thematic projects and special events that are both educational and recreational for children’s enjoyment.
2. TO PROVIDE OPPORTUNITIES TO LEARN WITHIN THE “CHOICE SYSTEM”.
Students will be presented with a list of activities and then encouraged to choose something that interests them. Children are empowered by good decision-making. Although we do offer some activities that are grade/age specific, students are not separated by grade. Children have a lot of input and often lead projects for other students.
3. TO HELP STUDENTS DEVELOP AND MAINTAIN POSITIVE PEER RELATIONSHIPS.
We promote problem solving, listening, discussion, student self-esteem and responsibility through intervention and mediation. Children learn an important social skill when they learn how to make and keep friends.
Within this structure, we offer a variety of daily activities which are based on our monthly themes. In addition to our thematic events we have these other exciting activities:
- Homework Club - Dance Club - Arts and Crafts
- Science Experiments - Board Games and Puzzles - Creative Dramatics
In addition, we try to incorporate special entertainment events or our own special activities every month. They may include:
- Animal shows - Guest Presenters - Parties - Library Program
- Water Activities - Sports Challenges - Golden Coin Hunt - Holiday Celebrations
