What we have to offer...

Our goal is quality program experiences for the children. The Assistant Director plans and prepares stimulating activities with the children’s input. Children’s interests, needs and abilities are met, and their unique and diverse qualities are celebrated. We ensure that sufficient supplies and equipment are provided to meet the children’s needs. Our programming, in both group and independent activities, promotes physical health, provides for intellectual growth and many social opportunities.

OPTIONAL PROGRAMS & LESSONS

Special lessons or programs are offered for additional fees. Registrations are provided at the Centre and some programs/lessons are supervised by our staff.  Parents who are interested in having children attend must register through the Centre.

We like to help keep your kids active and healthy. Our relationship with our neighbour the U of A allows for your children to utilize their great resources.

It can be busy for parents during the weeks. Karate is a great way to ensure your kids are staying active, learning good principles, and engaging with people while you work hard to provide for your family.

PROGRAMS FOR OLDER CHILDREN

A special program operates for older children at the Centre. “Club” is usually for children in grades five and six. This program runs with a supervisor in a separate room(s). The intent is to provide increased opportunity for students to have input and be responsible for designing their program. Students plan activities with assistance from their supervisor, engage in age-appropriate activities and learn leadership skills. Children in Club may hold fund raising activities for their program. The Club may have distal supervision, which is intermittent supervision when there is a planned, time-limited program activity. The goal of distal supervision is to enhance children’s ability to function responsibly and independently of direct adult supervision. There is no Club program on full days such as Spring Break, PD Days or the summer program.

“Individualized small group programming.”
