Out-Of-The-Box Before And After School Program


The atmosphere at SPARK! is nurturing and inclusive and we strive to maintain a high-quality learning environment tailored for children in different age groups that is a “home away from home”.

We integrate education and the arts and make it possible for children to explore their potential while cultivating lifelong friendships in an amazing community of supportive teachers, peers and parents.

Student learning is nourished and encouraged through open-ended projects, discovery opportunities, and inquiry-style instruction that makes the most of each child’s innate curiosity.

Parents will drop their children at our centre in the morning if they have chosen to participate in the before school session where children will be served a hot breakfast cooked by our onsite chef. They will also engage in quiet activities as their minds focus on going to school. The children will then be transported by bus from our centre to their schools where teachers will chaperone students to their classes.

After school, students will be picked up by one of our teachers and transported by bus back to our centre where they will enjoy a nutritious snack before taking part in our after school session which consists of one or two scheduled enrichment classes, depending on their ages.

They will be able to wind down at the end with a free time session before pick-up at 6:00pm

Students make important decisions about the direction of their own learning and discovery. At Renaissance Kids, we listen to our students. Instead of prescribing paths, we believe in presenting options and opportunities that cultivate leadership and choice and help children grow in confidence.


Children have multiple “languages”, or ways they can express themselves.  We offer opportunities for exploration in science, social skills, art, music, dance, language, and theatre.


We each exist as unique and powerful learners, but we also work together to transform our community and ourselves. We instill a sense of personal responsibility in our children and do our best to introduce them to the wider world.


Each child is part of a larger family unit, and Renaissance Kids seeks to nurture the relationships between students and their parents through collaborative communication and involvement.
