Our Program

At TOPP KIDS North Haven School, we foster a close-knit, inclusive family. We believe it is our mission to mentor each child’s growth, creativity, and social and emotional development. Using our PLAY, GROW, LAUGH & LEARN model, we provide lots of opportunities through our S.T.R.E.A.M. programs (Science, Technology, Reading & wRiting, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics), literacy activities, nature exploration, life skills, leadership and Kids Clubs. We also support healthy lifestyles through our physical literacy initiatives based off of the new Alberta Active Afterschool guidelines.

Each TOPP KIDS program is also equipt with our extended Youth Community Facilitator Framework- Many children who require support with socialization can often benefit from some added groundwork in social-emotional learning. This framework focuses on acquiring and effectively applying the knowledge and skills involved in managing emotions, feeling and expressing empathy for others, making positive and responsible decisions, and effectively creating and maintaining a close group of peers, or community.

Our program is not just for those who need care but for every family that wants to see their child grow outside of school during those critical hours. Why waste time at home playing video games when there are so many fun things to do at TOPP KIDS?! Check out some of our daily PROGRAM HIGHLIGHTS.

Chelsey MacLellan

Sr. Regional Manager

The first 12 years of a child’s life are foundational in creating the morals, values, and self-esteem they will carry with them for the rest of their lives. Providing a safe creative and nurturing environment for children to explore, create and discover who they are and who they long to become has always been my passion. We are all a hidden treasure longing to be known and every child deserves to be seen that way and be appreciated and loved for exactly who they are. It is Chelsey's life mission to allow exactly that.

She began her journey with children working youth summer camps where she learned a foundational relationship to learning through play, community, and nature. Chelsey then continued in an integrative environment for children with special needs where again a foundation of community and play was deeply rooted in the progress of each child and the community. Having a background in Montessori teaching where children are encouraged to learn through natural play and self-exploration, the deep need and importance of leadership and self-ignition became paramount for a child to truly understand and treasure who they are. After a foundation of learning with younger children, she came to love the passion and creativity school-age children have. The way they allow themselves to truly explore and allow their inner selves to blossom.

"I am proud to say I have committed the last 15 years to working with school age children and excited my journey has led me to work and lead with the children, families, and team at TOPP KIDS."
