Buds & Blossoms After School Classes

Here at Buds & Blossoms, we offer an array of enrichment classes during the after school hours to kids 4-8 years old;
from gymnastics, creative arts, dance, languages to cooking, we have it all.

Our instructors are all certified professionals in their field. Classes are suitable for children that are 4-8 years old.

Our classes are organized in semesters throughout the school year: September – December (Fall Semester), January to March (Winter Semester), & April – June (Spring Semester). Registration for each term begins approximately one month prior to term commencement and enrollment for the full term is required. Current students will be given early re-enrollment privilege.

Classes will take place on school PA Days and parents are welcome to drop off children for their classes on those days. There are no classes during December & March school breaks or during summer holidays (July and August). Summer camps are offered during those months.

Bonjour B&B

As budding linguists, children will develop an oral foundation in French language through conversation that is appropriate to their current French language level. Led by an instructor, children will explore the French language through storytelling, songs and games, expanding their vocabulary and knowledge of common French phrases. *This class is especially fantastic for children in French language programs at school and children needing additional French language support!

Get ready for a crazy fun dance class that will make your “headspin”! (See what we did there?) If your child was a fan of our Turntableism and Hip Hop classes last year, Break Dance will be an awesome treat! Weaving together principles of hip hop culture, self-expression and physical fitness, this class will infuse your child’s day with an exciting introduction to breaking that will keep them enthusiastically engaged with positively poppin’ energy.

HandsON Science

Buds & Blossoms goes above and beyond science class at school to encourage children to explore, learn and grow in the world around them in ways they’ve never thought of before.

As they learn age-appropriate kitchen skills, they will also have the opportunity to put their imagination, creativity and decision-making skills onto their plates. Green cooking practices, nutrition and body positivity will also be an ongoing theme from week to week in their classes that they can bring home and share with you. Bon appetit!

Each week, kids will go on a journey together through story and movement. Kids become a part of the story, learning themes of diversity and friendship while practising empathy and building confidence.
