McKenzie Lake School

Our Program

At TOPP KIDS McKenzie Lake School, we foster a close-knit, high-energy 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.

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 McKenzie Lake School who attend the CBE AM Class (2022/2023). 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.

Lynleigh Keat

Program Coordinator

Lynleigh is a passionate advocate in the field of Early Childhood Education. She first started in the field as an ECE diploma graduate in Peterborough, Ontario and has since completed her Bachelor of Child Studies in Early Learning and Child Care at MRU. With over ten years of experience working with children, families, and communities, Lynleigh is committed to creating early learning environments that communities can thrive in. Her personal philosophy and image of the child is deeply rooted in the time spent outdoors and open-ended materials that promote inquiry and free thought. She believes that children are competent, capable, inquisitive explorers of the world and her role in their journey is to offer the time and space to wander and explore alongside them. It is a joy and an honour to experience the world through the eyes of a child and it is a privilege Lynleigh does not take lightly. In her free time, Lynleigh enjoys singing and listening to folk music and musical soundtracks, karaoke, camping, biking, hiking, watercolour painting and watching movies.
