About the Program
Evergreen Child Care Centres out-of-school program involves children grades one through grade six (ages 6-12). Our program is designed to meet the individual educational and recreational needs of a child and it has been developed to enhance the child’s existing skills while introducing and encouraging new interest areas and skills.
What The Program Offers
Evergreen Child Care Centre offers a variety of activities such as organized sports, planned group games, science, arts and crafts, co-operative games, field trips and more. Children will have a chance to choose based upon their own skills and interests. Areas will allow for active or quiet activities which give children an opportunity to socialize and work on co-operation and group problem solving skills. Time will also be provided each day for assistance with homework.
The staff will assist children in learning how to make appropriate decisions about their own behaviour. The safety and well being of all children in the program is of the greatest importance and will be maintained in several ways. Guidelines for behaviour will be developed with the children in their development of self-discipline. Positive reinforcement methods will also be used in order to help children develop a positive pattern of behaviour with the other children in the program.
Our purpose is to help children develop to their fullest potential by focusing on:
- self-awareness, confidence and feeling of self-worth
- values development
- physical skills
- health and nutrition
- social skills
Our goal is to have happy and safe children and to meet the fundamental needs for growth and development.
