St. Philip is a Fine Arts School so TOPP KIDS carried this idea through the creation of this program and developed a sophisticated art program where the children have the opportunity to create by both themselves and as part of a team. Many of our projects are designed to incorporate ideas from the weekly themes. Coupled with the art program, the children at St. Philip participate in lots of free time for child-led play, clubs, and daily group games lead by the daily leader. Our centre design allows for active play with half of the gymnasium left open for active play, sports, dancing, etc.
Using the “Bucket Filling” technique, children learn and discover how they can experience the joy of helping, sharing, and giving. This approach focuses on positive behavior. The term fill a bucket is taught and its call to action is: What can you do to fill a bucket? Imagination and creativity are valued, fostered and encouraged.
