After School Program
We are currently accepting children for our after school program. The following programs take place Monday - Friday, from 4:00pm till 5:30pm.
LEARN TO CODE WITH SCRATCH WITH KIDS CODE JEUNESSE
Over the course of the workshop, children build an interactive project using Scratch, a computer programming language developed at MIT. The course will build over the term and students will have the opportunity to help direct the direction of the classes towards the end of the session.
Each child picks a on online JAM course that they are interested in and begin working through the challenges. JAM courses show kids how to take initiative, design their own solutions, experiment, and share their ideas. The cycle of trying, failing and growing creates independent thinkers who are capable and confident.
DRAMA WITH OTTAWA CHILDREN’S THEATRE
This after school drama program focuses on building the ensemble and on learning to create together, as a group. Students explore various ways of telling a story through movement, voice, improvisation, word play and creating characters. Students explore ideas, myths, folk tales and stories from a variety of sources to discover themes and create original work. Working at individual levels, they develop their language skills as they perform poetry and prose. The group will create a final presentation for family and friends at the end of each season.
*Students in this course will have the option of registering for a Speech & Drama exam through Trinity College, London. The winter and spring sessions will have a special focus on poetry, prose, and mime to prepare students for the Trinity Exams.
We are all makers! On Fridays we will be offering mini-workshops in many different “maker” forms. From 3D printing to cross-stitch, littleBits to free exploration, Fridays will be full on innovation and fun!
