Families who wish to use School Age Program services for Holiday Program days are requested to sign up at least 2 business days prior to the day services are needed (sign up by the 25th of the previous month to order lunch, when available). Please sign up for each Holiday Program day by clicking the link above. Sign up is separate for each child. Space is available on a first-come, first-served basis.
Doors open at 08:30 on Holiday Program days. The day begins with quiet time. Children can do homework, read, or play quietly.
Following a morning snack, children engage in a structured learning activity. Some examples are: measuring ingredients to make the perfect slime, using homemade playdough to make stress balls, exploring chemical reactions to make paper rockets, blow up balloons, or make elephant toothpaste.
Children are encouraged to take care of the room by cleaning up after themselves and making sure tables and other surfaces are clean and tidy before lunch begins.
Lunch begins at 12:00. Parents/guardians who have not ordered school lunch for their child are welcome to take their child out for lunch or provide a lunch box for their child to eat. Please make sure to pack a lunch which does not need to be heated as microwave oven use will may not be available. Parents/guardians are welcome to eat with their child in the School Age Program room if there is space.
Food guidelines for food brought from home:
Please prepare your child a healthy lunch/snack.
Due to severe allergies, no nuts are allowed. Please be aware that some prepackaged purchased snacks contain nuts. Please check the ingredients on all packaging carefully.
Fruits and vegetables are recommended.
Yogurt or other dairy products are not recommended as they might be in the backpacks all day and not be fresh during afterschool hours.
Candy, cookies, or sugary snacks are not allowed.
Sharing food with non-family members is not allowed.
After lunch, children have free time for homework or other quiet activities, followed by outdoor play (weather-permitting).
