St. Philip Fine Arts School

Our Centre

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.

Centre Values

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.

Karen Clements

Active Play Coordinator

She started her career with children after many years of being a stay at home mom. Having three children, it was a dream to be able to take them with her to work. She quickly fell in love with the families and the work she did with them.

Now all her children are grown and she still loves working with this age group. She enjoys seeing the children grow and learn, they inspire her to appreciate the simple lessons and opportunities we have on a daily basis. She is excited to be a member of the TOPP KIDS family and cannot wait to meet you!
