Age group: 5 to 12 year old's
Most of our Eagles are in kindergarten, attending a variety of schools in the Seven Oaks School Division, and only in the Eagle room for half a day. During summer holidays, winter break, spring break, and in-services, children are here all day. We also have several children up to 12 years old who join our group before and after school.
Documentation is posted to display what the children have been doing in the classroom. Children are encouraged to ask questions and share ideas when involved in an activity. We provide many types of materials and loose parts for children to explore through both child-led and adult-led experiences.
Real Life Tasks:
The children are encouraged to help prepare the table for snack and lunch and help sweep the floor after activities. We believe that children are capable and encourage the children to complete tasks on their own where it is appropriate to do so.
Relationships with our children and their families are important in our program. We spend quality time with each child to really get to know them and build a foundation of trust. We want to create an environment where children and families feel welcome to come in, share, and spend time with us.
We like our parents to be involved with our classroom so we may from time to time ask for your assistance with something we are collecting or a project that could be taking place.
