AFTERCARE for Preschool to Grade 6
The Calgary Waldorf School offers Aftercare programs to children enrolled in our Preschool, Kindergarten and Grades One to Six Programs.
We know it is preferable for children to go home with their parents after their regular classes but when this is not possible, we believe it is best to provide extended care in an environment consistent with the Waldorf School values and approach to childhood development.
Our staff members have qualifications and training in early childhood development and education, Waldorf education and Provincially-certified teacher education. The programs are held in the Kinderwing and the staff work closely with our teaching staff to provide a smooth transition for each child from their regular classes to the Aftercare programs.
NEW for the 2019/2020 School Year: The Calgary Waldorf School will offer an Aftercare program to children enrolled in our Kindergarten, Preschool and Grades One to Six Programs. The Aftercare Programs operate from 3:00 pm to 5:30 pm each school day.
For the 2018/19 school year Early Childhood Aftercare operates 11:30 am to 5:30 pm each school day for Kindergarten and Preschool students. The Grade School Aftercare operates each full school day 3:00 pm to 5:30 pm for Grades 1 to 6 students. The Aftercare will not operate on the School’s holidays, organizational days or professional development days.
Early Childhood Children are picked up by the Aftercare staff from their Preschool/Kindergarten programs and spend the afternoon based in the West Classroom of the Kinderwing. Their afternoon includes lunch time, outdoor play, occasionally short walks around the schoolyard or trips to the elementary playground, rest time, a late afternoon snack, free play with active and quiet games or activities.
Grade School Children are met by the staff member in the boot room at 3:00 pm and after a period of outdoor play they go to the East Classroom in the Kinderwing for a snack (provided by the program), followed by time for indoor play, games, reading or homework until picked up by their parent.
