School Age Program

Merry Pop-Ins Childcare Centre – School Age Program provides activities, rest-times, and free-time appropriate to the time of day and the ages of the children. Children will feel that this is their “home away from home” and parents will benefit from the easy drop-off and pick-up location at Englewood School.

We provide experiences that enrich and enhance each child’s cognitive, language, social, emotional, physical, and creative development. Within the program each child has the opportunity to create, explore the environment, learn problem solving and personal interaction skills, and learn new concepts through first-hand experiences. Children develop a positive self-concept through a balance of self-and teacher facilitated activities. Opportunities for solitary play as well as group activities are provided. Staff members serve as positive role models and provide care that is supportive, nurturing, warm and responsive to each child’s individual needs.

Merry Pop-Ins Childcare Centre – School Age Program is a before/after school program and Summer Camp that began operations on July 4, 2011.
