The purpose of our School Age program is to provide a comfortable environment that children look forward to attending, one that is both fun and challenging. The goal is to enhance self-esteem, support children’s social development as individuals and as members of a group, and to encourage creativity through activities that support interest levels and enhance cognitive skills.
