Ontario’s After School Program (Ages 6 to 12)
The POAAE program supports free after-school activities in priority neighborhoods. The aim is to promote physical activity, healthy eating and well-being in a non-discriminatory environment. Students enjoy a fun, culturally diverse environment where participants feel involved and respected.
After-school program staff prepare physical activity games, cultural and artistic activities, educational workshops and more to ensure that every student’s interests are met.
A healthy snack is offered daily and we offer help with homework two days a week.
We also offer special activities in collaboration with other CSCHN staff, such as :
- Activities with our dietician once a week to talk about healthy eating habits and snack ideas.
- Activities with a mental health counselor and a mental health educator to talk about managing emotions, stress, bullying, etc.
- Activities with our School Settlement Workers (SSW) to learn more about the diverse cultures present not only in Canada, but around the world
Who is it for? The program is open to children in Grades 1 through 6.
Eligibility: Any French-speaking child can participate as long as their parent or guardian can ensure transportation to and from the site.
