Play the healthy way

At MAX, we don’t view After School programming as simply a way to keep a child safe and occupied until parents arrive. We believe that the hours children spend with us are a critical part of their lives and development. We take a science-based approach, creating programming that builds valuable skills in fun, play-based ways, and sets the foundation for lifelong healthy habits. Importantly, we are able to group children by age so that your child gets to spend time with peers improving their social skills and often forming deep friendships. And, because they are grouped by age, our planned activities are age-appropriate and engaging for everyone, as opposed to being too simple or too advanced for some.

At MAX After School we understand that regular activity provides positive outcomes beyond just the physical. In fact, recent studies have shown that active children tend to do better in school and are happier overall. That’s why we follow the Canadian Physical Activity Guidelines by providing children with at least 60 minutes of moderate to vigorous activity per day. We keep things fun and fresh by cycling through a large number of activities including fitness 4 fun, yoga, martial arts, traditional sports such as soccer, basketball, curling and hockey and other various movement-based play. We also spend time outdoors each day, when weather permits. And of course, we also engage their creative sides with games and craft making.
