North Haven School

OPENING SEPTEMBER 2019!

 

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.

Full-Time Kindergarten Program

In addition to our regular before and after school programming, TOPP KIDS is proud to offer full-day kindergarten programs for students at our North Haven School. Our team has created a program that compliments what they’re learning in their classrooms, while still PLAYing, GROWing, LAUGHing & LEARNing with weekly themes based on their interests.

Claire Gipson

Room Lead - Kindi-Care Club

Claire has always known that childcare was the field she wanted to pursue in life; it’s not just a job to go to each morning, but her passion that is being fulfilled. She studied Child Care in Cambridge, United Kingdom, where she achieved her Foundation Degree in Early Childhood and her Bachelor of Honours in Early Child Care and Education. Not only does she have over 10 years’ experience working with children, but she also has 6 years of personal experience being a mum to her own children!
