Before & After School Program

Richmond Hill before and after school program is an educational after school program based on the children’s interests. We will provide a safe and stimulating environment to effectively meet the needs of school-aged children. Our goal is to work with each individual child, and encourage the children to build respectful relationships with their peers within the community, all while having fun learning through various activities which are experimental, challenging, and based on their interest. During this period we will provide the children with a healthy snack, homework assistance, and encourage the children to work together in a social setting to be creative and learn about their new finding interests.
Further more, our mission is to work with the children in our community and help build self-esteem, help to build respectful relationships with peers, keep the children active, work with the children in their areas of interest, and expand in these areas with various learning activities. We make learning fun!

Half Day/Full Day Preschool/Kindergarten Program

Our Preschool Program builds and encourages the potential in every child through nurturing, praising, and in an enriched, safe early learning environment.

In our preschool program, we teach the children in a half structured/play based environment. We see the potential in all children and strive to work with each child in a small group setting so each child will be able to reach its goals. Every child learns at their own pace, and here at Play Island Explorers we work with the child and ensure the child learns, but while enjoying the learning process. We make learning fun and exciting!
