Afterschool@Home

Engaging Virtual Afterschool Programs for Kids Ages 6-8 and Ages 9-12

Led by our trained staff, University Settlement’s AFTERSCHOOL@HOME programs offer age-appropriate, unique, fun experiences that nurture exploration, spark imagination, and provide opportunities for physical activity.

Daily Activities

Children participate in a Welcome Activity as we sign on and take attendance. After a Movement Break (either an active game, yoga flow, or dance session), the Activity-of-the-Day begins. Activities include science experiments, arts/crafts/DIY projects, virtual board games, and computer workshops.

Weekly Outdoor Challenge

We know it’s hard spending so much time online, and we want to encourage children to get outside as much as possible. The FREE Weekly Outdoor Challenge encourages children and their families to get outside. Through scavenger hunts, photo challenges, neighbourhood drawing explorations and nature journaling, participants of all ages can enjoy their neighbourhood together, safely.

Weekly Challenges can be done at your child’s pace. We encourage families to send us photos of their children completing the activities so we can upload them on our website!

Materials for Activities

All materials required for each week’s activities are included in the registration fee. Kits will be available for pick-up at University Settlement’s 23 Grange Road location. Families will be given staggered pick-up times.
