Niny’s Day Care & After School Care offers a truly diverse array of activities to the children in their care. We keep children well-rounded and active during their time with us.
1. Exercise Activities (Indoor and Outdoor)
We bring in a professional fitness trainer once a month to do workouts with the children. We also go on a number of excursions, such as our partnership with seniors’ homes where children spend quality time with grandpas and grandmas, Edmonton Valley Zoo, John Johnson Nature Centre, and more! We also do a yoga session every month.
2. Creative Activities
At Niny’s, we know how important it is to engage a child’s creativity. A professional painter comes in once a month to work with the children. We also have a Lego section and an arts section.
3. Learning Activities
We structure our learning sessions so that the topics and questions are always brought up by the children, whether the topic is about airplanes, technology, or something else. Once a week, we host a language session where a child has the opportunity to teach the other children about his or her ancestral language or mother tongue. We have done sessions in French, Spanish, Amharic, Arabic, and more.
4. Seasonal Events
Niny’s does it all! Hallowe’en, Christmas, Easter, a powwow with dancing and a ceremony, a summer barbeque, and more!
We offer counseling with parents and counseling with children. For the children, we take time during the snack to have a special meeting with each child where we can get to know the children and talk to them about how they feel, and what they like to see and do in the program. Every day we have a half-hour dinner table meeting with the children where they and the staff are together. It’s a bonding time.
