“Encourage your student to never stop learning, because life will never stop teaching them!”


WHAT IS EXTENDED CARE?

Extended Care is an extension of our students’ day and consists of four main components: Literacy Development, Social-Emotional Learning, STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) Activities and Physical activities (indoor and outdoor).
Literacy Development and activities are extended in to the afternoon so that students continue to have the opportunity to build their reading and comprehension skills.  Social-emotional learning is offered in order to build students’ understanding of their emotions, self-awareness skills, social-awareness skills , self-management skills, responsible decision-making skills and relationship skills through student and parent groups, various programs and Out-of-School-Time curricula.
In order to keep Extended Care fun AND educational, students are exposed to various STE(A)M activities (such as Nelson-Atkins sessions, School Beats program and the V.I.P. Movement among other programs.  Every student has the opportunity to participate in activities that involve physical science, incorporates technology, constructs engineering and design models, creates art and/or applies math.
Finally, students have the chance to exercise and get some fresh air.  Outdoors/indoor physical activity is a way to move oxygen to the brain so that students can focus and continue learning late into the afternoon.
