The Curriculum in our School-Age Program helps children:

  • Focus on developing positive relationships, foster a caring community, and practice living in a democracy.
  • Develop skills sufficiency – taking responsibility for their things and their actions(e.g. tying their shoes).
  • Learn to be problem-solvers and decision-makers.
  • Play a key role in planning and implementing projects.
  • Stretch their imaginations.
  • Value experimental learning and broaden their understanding of the real world by giving opportunities to act and dramatize.
  • Practice life skills that they can use throughout their lives(e.g. baking, sewing, working with tools).
  • Enjoy leisure activities (e.g. sports, clubs, crafts).
  • Explore their community by taking field trips throughout the year.
