School Aged Program
This group shares the largest room in the center with the preschool age group . The learning emphasis for this age group is both fine and gross motor control, early literacy skills, and social competency. We achieve these skills through a variety of hands-on materials, team-building games, and a literacy-rich environment.
Activities for independent and structured learning occur daily. Children do project-based learning and get involved with the community. They are encouraged to devise and implement plans of their own inspiration and take the steps to realize them. This may be something like a community car wash, building a toy house, or performing a play.
Snacks are provided twice daily by the center.
Children engage in snack prep and clean up.
All of our Little Dippers enjoy a huge outdoor backyard with a garden, sandbox, slides, swings, and sports equipment. Children participate in weekly field trips and hikes in the majestic Alaskan wilderness, just steps outside our door.
