Before & After School Program

Our Before and After school program accommodates children in
K - Gr. 7 in the Pemberton Heights area. Staff from Sunflower Early Learning provide walking drop off and pick up from Capilano Elementary School. 

Goals

  • To create a setting in which children will find warmth, comfort, and gentleness as well as an abundance of opportunities for movement, exploration, and self-discovery according to individual needs, interests, and abilities.

  • To assist each child to grow to his fullest potential by recognizing each stage of development and fashioning an environment (i.e. curriculum, facilities, staff) designed to nurture and facilitates growth during each stage.

  • To help children achieve independence, self-discipline, social competence, self-knowledge, enthusiasm for learning, positive attitudes, intellectual growth, and an organized approach to problem solving.

  • To assist parents in understanding the developmental stage of their child enabling them to contribute most effectively to the child’s growth and enrichment.
