Kindergarten to Grade 3

We welcome you to our brand new home in the multipurpose room of Ecole Lord Tennyson.


We’ve welcomed a lot of young friends over the years and we know that children learn through play. At TOSS we engage children in activities that are not only fun, but help them develop their gross & fine motor, cognitive and social skills. We use our mixed age grouping at TOSS to foster a sense of leadership in the older children and a sense of belonging in the younger ones.

Weekly & Monthly Events...

Friday Draw Day

TOSS can get pretty messy and we like to acknowledge our hard-working cleaners!  Every day we put the names of our cleaners into a jar and each Friday we pick three names to win a prize!

Birthday Snack

We have a monthly birthday snack to celebrate all the children who have a birthday in that month.  The birthday kids get to be servers, too!

Weekly & Monthly Events...

Check your monthly calendar to see when the sign-up for these activities will be posted on the Afterschool News board.  Children are welcome to sign themselves up for an activity in which they would like to participate.

Cooking Day

Cooking Day happens every Tuesday. Cookers  will prepare and serve snack to the group. Children will be given one week’s notice of their cooking day so they can make sure they are here and can stay for snack that day.

Baking Day

Baking Day happens the last Monday of the month. Children will create two delicious treats to take home. Children grades K – 3 are welcome to participate in this activity.

Yoga

Children kindergarten to grade 3 are welcome to participate in this activity.

Sign-Up Outings...

Check your calendar to see when the sign up for these outings will be posted on the Afterschool News board.  Children are welcome to sign themselves up for the outing, but we MUST have a parent signature as well, as these activities take place off-site.
