School Age Centre
Welcome to S.P.L.A.S.H. Child Care INC.
School Age Centre (CC)
S.P.L.A.S.H. Child Care Inc. first opened up in April of 1985 and has been a beacon of early learning since. Through working with the community, building partnerships, and creating relationships with families, S.P.L.A.S.H. has developed and continues to create an excellent environment for children to learn and grow. The staff at S.P.L.A.S.H. take the time to help guide the children and provide them with new and fun experiences to build up their many talents and skills.
The nursery program runs from Tuesday – Friday, 9:00 AM – 11:30 AM for children ages of 2-5 years old.
The Nursery program involves the children experiencing a welcoming environment with lots of fun and exciting things to do. They learn about many of the necessary skills that children can use before starting school. Along with learning essential skills, the children will have the time to interact and have fun in a safe setting. Singing songs, reading stories, making art, our Moe the Mouse program, playing with, and making new friends, are just some of the things bound to happen in the Nursery Program.
Our School Age Centre runs from Monday – Friday, 7 AM – 5:30 PM for children ages 5-12 years old.
Our School Age Program at S.P.L.A.S.H. Child Care Inc. is a very involved program that happens when the children are not in school. When the children arrive in the centre in the morning, they are given the opportunity to have a nutritional snack and engage in activities provided by the staff. When the children return for lunch, they are given a chance to enjoy their meals and interact with the other children in the centre. After our older children leave back to school, our Nursery and Kindergarten children remain at the centre for a more focused curriculum. Some of that curriculum involves the children exploring our Moe the Mouse and Tea Tree Tells programs; these programs are taught to the children to help with literacy and safety. The staff provides all of the curriculum created to include all of the fundamentals that children need to learn and grow. Some of the curricula that we run here at S.P.L.A.S.H. is Indigenous curriculum, Moe the Mouse, and Tea Tree Tells.
One of the things that the children learn about at S.P.L.A.S.H. is the importance of responsibility. We do this with the children with a chore chart. The children take the time to do chores around the centre at the end of the day. They are given, what we call, Splash Cash that they have written down in their Chore Chart book and then on a specific day, the children have “Cash Out,” in which the children are allowed to take their books to spend their hard-earned Splash Cash and buy toys and the like from our Cash Out bins.
