Welcome to TOPP KIDS Out of School Clubs – North Haven
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 Philosophy & Mission Statement:
At TOPP KIDS Out of School Clubs we know each child is unique. There are 4 fundamentals that we both believe in and practice every day in everything we do: Play, Grow, Laugh & Learn.
We provide an environment that is safe, nurturing and stimulating, where children learn and develop through play and exploration. Our physical environment, as well as our developmentally-appropriate curriculums, are designed to meet the needs of children in all areas of development (social, physical, intellectual, cognitive, and emotional). Individualized planning and supportive interactions between our staff and the children help us to create an atmosphere that feels safe and encourage feelings of self-worth, creativity and leadership. We aim to develop true TOPP KIDS!
It is our mission to provide accessible, affordable & high quality Out of School programs and training to Albertan families and Early Childhood Educators.
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.
