Children at Time for Play enjoy a fun and educational enrichment program. In addition to paid professional instructors, our program also brings community members such as parents, grandparents, friends and neighbours into our classroom to share their talents, jobs and customs with our children. A parent from each class is in charge of organizing our volunteer enrichment program and all costs are covered in the Program Fees.
Some examples of the amazing enrichment programs at Time for Play:
A dance instructor from Swansea School of Dance visits and runs a 30-minute music and movement program twice a month. The children learn basic dance fundamentals through songs and games. Students enhance their co-ordination, locomotive, and cognitive development.
Students will experience a unique children's yoga session led by our recently retired assistant teacher, Ms. Jane. The use of creative storytelling, props and music will guide children in this engaging activity.
Time for Play organizes class outings including nature walks, visits to the Runnymede Library and High Park Nature Centre, with extra volunteers on hand, of course!
More volunteers from the community really round out the program and may include parents reading stories, sharing a musical talent or a particular skill or interest with the class.
