SmartieSpecialties – Afternoon
Check out the descriptions for our new afternoon SmartieSpecialties!
SmartieAthletes, are you ready!? It’s time for Smartiepants to become the SmartieGym!
It is not all about sports…at SmartieAthletes it’s all about movement! We will focus on skills like jumping, balance, coordination, and teamwork. Our SmartieAthletes will participate in movement-focused activities that will help strengthen their gross motor and fine motor skills. Whether it be running an obstacle course, learning to do a jumping jack or moving to a beat – our SmartieAthletes will all have the best time! In addition, the children will have time to explore the Smartiepants Studio during the session allowing them to enjoy all of the various play-centres.
SmartieAthletes is facilitated by our SmartieCoach, Jenni Diamond.
Get your aprons, SmartieChefs…and let’s have fun in the kitchen!
Our SmartieChefs will go on a delicious journey – learning about healthy eating, getting messy in the kitchen, and exploring new foods! As the yummy foods are cooking and the aroma fills the air in the SmartieLoft, the group will have fun participating in various activities, such as playing with gross motor toys, puzzles and games.
Our SmartieChefs will take home the recipes each week – allowing parents and kids to replicate the healthy recipes at home! Let’s give our kids some responsibility for knowing what they eat, how they eat and why they eat it!
SmartieChefs is facilitated by our amazing head chef, Cali Guttman.
Welcome to the SmartieLaboratory… where the SmartieScientists will put on their goggles and get to work!
It is time to experiment – where the kids will learn to predict, do experiments and track results! At a young age, our Scientists will begin to investigate, spark curiosities and engage in purposeful collaboration with their peers. Using all kid-friendly materials and tools that could be found in your home, these experiments will be easy to repeat with your kids (though, we can’t guarantee that they will always be mess-free!). Get your labcoats and goggles – it’s time to get down to business!
SmartieScientists is facilitated by the incredible, Laurel Etkin.
It’s time to take centre stage at SmartieBroadway!
SmartieBroadway welcomes children in JK, SK and Grade 1 for a chance to ACT, SING & PLAY! This program will help your child build confidence, express creativity, and explore their imagination! In a fun-filled, safe environment, our SmartieBroadway actors will engage in theater games, learn songs and and create their own characters and stories. On the last day of the session, our Smartie Actors will present you a short performance and go home with a special award from the ‘Smarties’ (our version of the Tony’s!).
SmartieBroadway is facilitated by Broadway veteran and TV actor, Darrin Baker.
