After School Program

We operate between the hours of 2:30-5:30pm. The children in our program are organized into individual grades. Each group has their own home base with a Team Lead and 1 to 2 counselors. Our program accommodates Grade 1 to Grade 6. Our ratios for counselor to children exceed recommendations. Daily activities are programmed around physical, mental, and social.

Each Friday is a Funday Friday, a day where children participate in a special activity planned and organized by the group’s team lead. The activities run as stations. Where the children visit each room and rotate. During the program children are playing organized games, doing crafts, socializing with friends and building long lasting relationships.

Some examples of our bigger activities include a full production of “Beauty and the Beast”, DIY mini putt course, video dance parties, life sized board games, learning a new language and more. We have also have a popcorn and movie day at the end of each month. Popcorn is priced to $1.00. Proceeds from the popcorn with go towards children who cannot afford a recreational program at Canterbury.

The After School program hosts March Break Camps and PD DAY camps throughout the year. These camps often include an out trip and a full day or week of planned activities. The skills and attributes taught in our program help each child to become more responsible and successful in their own lives.

We also have amazing clubs in the after school program that change every month, at an extra cost. These programs run from 3:30pm to 4:30pm.
