Every day is a special day at Hillcrest Safariland. Children are encouraged and supported throughout their day with us. Our staff are trained to ensure that every child feels safe. Structured play experiences, snack time and cooperative games teach children how to get along with their peers in a positive environment.
Here is a full list of our activities:
Our dedicated music specialist provides daily musical programming for all chidren, and encourages group participation, imaginative expression and the building of self-esteem. Unique group songs, children's classics and music circles provide endless opportunities for fun and laughter.
This is an educational, non-competitive sports program for all children taught by an experienced sports instructor. The program uses specialized sporting equipment and exercises combined with creativity and positive teaching methods. Popular sports such as basketball, soccer, hockey and baseball are introduced. Children develop confidence, gross motor skills and team-building skills while having fun learning new sports.
Our arts and crafts program features a variety of activities designed to maximize creativity and self-expression. Our experienced counsellors and Early Childhood Educators plan and implement age-appropriate craft projects to develop and enhance fine motor skills. Theme-based art projects are often inspired by weekly program themes. Children use a wide variety of materials and media.
During rainy days, our children are challenged and engaged by a variety of indoor games and activities that promote creativity and team-building skills. Our indoor facilities are air-conditioned and the rooms are filled with educational equipment for use when outdoor activities aren't available.
Every Friday during the summer, we celebrate with special theme days. Special events are incorporated into our programs such as costume days, treasure hunts, and carnivals add spirit and excitement to our busy summers. In addition, we welcome special guests and performers to add to our already exciting program!
