From Kindergarten through Age 12, our School Age Program gives children a chance to unwind, further their learning, or simply play and make new friends, all in a safe, comfortable, supervised setting.
We know how demanding schedules of the outside world are on parents. At Rose Hill, we provide a place where caretakers know their kids are safe and secure in the early morning or late afternoons, in those sometimes tricky hours between home and school and vice versa.
We can accommodate a variety of scheduling needs by supporting your child's needs as they progress through their academic career. We foster an atmosphere of respect for others but also self-respect and balance based on a range of ages and needs, allowing for activities and educational games, outside play, quiet time or dedicated time to work. For example, if desired, children can choose to focus on homework assignments with teacher guidance, freeing up more time for when they return home. Alternately, hands-on activities are available for children to create and imagine, as well as a selection of games and books to explore. Snacks are also available to those who may want one.
Example of School Age Program Schedule
Schedules vary slightly for each location and depending on the season. We keep all parents and caregivers up-to-date through regular communications kept in a folder with your child's name on it.
