School age children are more independent and are learning society’s social manners. At Mahogany Learning Centre, our before and after school care program in Calgary combines guidance and security with independent exploration to give school age children both the freedom and structure they need. By providing group club activities and more complicated programs, our centre aims to provide an environment where children feel accepted and cared for.
At this stage learning through play looks differently as children begin their exploration into social norms and their individual roles in society. To help encourage the children’s development we aim to provide a program that is centred around the children’s interests but with diversity to allow for enriched and open-ended activities that supplement their development. Every child is unique and we consider every student’s individual needs. Whether it’s a quiet place to read, help with homework, or fun interaction with other children, your child will enjoy learning and growing at our centre.
