Saplings After School Program is now OPEN for pre-registration for the 2018/2019 year!

Our Programs allow for exploring and experiencing the natural world through practical involvement. We believe outdoors encourages imaginative play, creativity, hand-eye coordination, balance, physical strength and mental clarity, as well as increased problem solving and critical thinking skills. Additionally, it encourages more cooperation and teamwork and raises children’s emotional awareness.

We currently have programs at  West Bay and Eagle Harbour, please contact me at

if you are interested in starting a program at your school!

West Bay Licensed After School Program

West Bay After School Program runs during the September-June school year, from 3:00PM-6:00PM, Monday to Friday.

The majority of after school sessions will take place rain or shine in the outdoor environment.  In some program we will have access to an indoor environment when needed (for example, during winter when the sun sets at 4:30PM or on particularly wet West-Coast days). The landscape itself adds to the experience of learning and offers different opportunities for child-led learning and play.  We will spend extended periods outside everyday so please make sure that your children are dressed for the weather.
