Holiday Program

Apply For Holiday Program Dates


Curriculum/ Snack Guidelines

Families who wish to use the Holiday Program are requested to sign up by the 20th of the month preceding the requested service. After the 20th, the Holiday Program webform will be removed from the SAP webpage. (Sign up by the 20th of the previous month to order lunch/snacks, when available).

For example, if you'd like to sign your child up for a Holiday Program date in June, you would need to do so by May 20th. After May 20th, all June Holiday Program dates will be removed and it will no longer be possible to enroll a child to attend in June.

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.

A minimun of 5 children must be enrolled in order for the program to open at 8:30am. Otherwise the program will be avialable from 10:00am. On Holiday Program days, and the day begins with quiet time. Children can do homework, read, or play quietly. Older children who bring electronic devices to do homework or reading will be permitted to use them in a designated place, and must use them for homework purposes only.

After morning snack, children engage in either structured or unstructed learning activities. 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. If children are not interested in the prepared activity they are also free to choose something that peaks their interet.

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, other wise they should provide a lunch box (bento) for their child to eat. Please make sure to pack a lunch which does not need to be heated as microwave oven use will not be available. Parents/guardians are welcome to eat with their child in the School Age Program room if there is space.

After lunch, children have free time for homework or other quiet activities, followed by outdoor play (weather-permitting).

The Holiday Program will merge with the Early After School and After School programs from 13:30.

Snack Guidelines

NO NUTS are allowed, due to severe allergies. Please be aware that some prepackaged purchased snacks contain nuts. Please check the ingredients on all packaging carefully.

Yogurt or other dairy products are not recommended as they might be in the backpacks all day and not be fresh during afterschool hours.

Sharing food with non-family members is strictly prohibited.
