The Boys & Girls Clubs of Kawartha Lakes is working with your school to determine if/what the need for Before and/or After School programs would be needed at your school. The Club has been offering Before and After-School programs in the City of Kawartha Lakes for over 40 years and is currently offering After School programs in 5 locations. The Clubs After-School program is a non-licensed program that has been recognized by the city as service provider.
Our staff are trained in High Five Principals of Health Development (www.highfive.org), First Aid/CPR, C.A.T.C.H (Coordinated Approach To Child Health), Behavioural management, Health & Safety, communication, program planning and implementation and all our programs are regularly evaluated for quality.
Our Before & After School programs are built on 4 key areas- Physical Activity, Nutritional Education, Health & Wellness and Local needs. So what does this mean well let us explain!
Physical Activity- We provide children/youth with a variety of sports and recreational activities on a daily basis. Some of these programs would include- Ball Hockey, Volleyball, Soccer, Basketball, C.A.T.C.H, Mountain biking, Baseball and a variety of activities.
Nutritional Education- We believe that physical activity is a significant part of being healthy but that the food we consume is just a important. So we provide- daily snacks, nutrition lessons and activities based around knowledge and awareness of food and what is in it!
Health & Wellness- We look to address a variety of health issues faced by children and youth. This can include physical, mental and emotional health issues. Our programs support children and youth to care for their bodies- Flex Your Head (Mental Health), Take It EASY (Self-esteem), Substance usage (tobacco) and hygiene to name a few programs.
Local Needs-We provide a variety of programs that meet the needs of the individual community. These programs would include- music, homework, digital arts, Leader in Training all designed to meet community needs.
To offer these programs we do have to charge a fee to offset the expenses. The cost of our program is $8.50 per day for either Before School or After School. Our Before School program runs from 6:30am- start of school including activities and breakfast! Our After School program starts at the end of the school day and runs until 6pm. Children will have an opportunity to have daily snack, homework support and a variety of social activities.
We would appreciate your help to better understand your school and community. We would appreciate it if you would answer the questions on the reverse side of this page and return to the school office by February 27, 2014.
Thank you!- Boys & Girls Clubs of Kawartha Lakes
