BKC Presents: Healthy Beginnings 2019

What is Big Kids Club's Healthy Beginnings 2019?

Every afternoon, from December until February, our teachers present a structured educational program that will allow our preschoolers to find Healthy Beginnings.

Through sharing and team work, Big Kids Club enhances overall social development, and when children attend twice a week, they practice the rhythms and routines they'll need in kindergarten:

  • Cleaning up
  • Setting for circle time 
  • Story sharing time between peers and teachers 
  • Music and songs 
  • Art projects
  • Science experiments 
  • Weekly fieldtrips around greater Vancouver
  • Sharing and reflecting
  • .... and much more!

Weekday classes run from 1 - 4 pm everyday at Broadway and Storybook, and develop over the 12-week season. Sign up for your favourite classes every week, or mix and match across the board. 

Read below for class details! 

Mondays: Looking Up with Sarah and Talia

Our winter season will be extra special because.... *drum roll*

We are happy to announce that BKC masters Talia and Sarah will be co-teaching Monday's class called Looking Up! If  you like to appreciate the air we breath, or the creatures we share the sky with, then this class is for you! This topic doesn't end there because our Big Kids will be taught that "Looking Up" is more than just a direction. It is a feeling, mindset, and way of life!

Mondays: Super Natures with Kezia

 Are you ready to be a super hero? In Kezia's Super Natures class you get to be one! 

As a class, our big kids will get the chance to defeat real world villains together through team work! But what does it mean to be a Super Nature? Our big kids will learn to defeat real world issues such as deforestation, plastic pollution, and animosity. Learning about different ways to keep our world clean by preserving nature is an excellent way to introduce awareness for the environment. 

Tuesdays: Civilizations: Egypt with Aïda

 The history class that you have been waiting for is finally here!

Civilizations is a year long program that will dive into the ancient world of Egypt, Greece and Rome during the middle age. For the Winter season, Aïda will first introduce Egypt. Join this class to learn about Faraons, Pyramids, Mummies, and more! Egypt's history is full of rich stories, and through numbers, art, and geography, our Big Kids will never have a "mummified" moment! 

Tuesdays: Everyday Heroes with Ehlssie

There are heroes that live among us everyday. Every Tuesday at Storybook, we will celebrate them.

Our Big Kids will learn about what is means to be a good citizen. We will learn about firefighters, police officers, medical practitioners, and what impact they make in our society. Through this class, our big kids will be molded into citizens that have great love for humanity, as they learn that "not all heroes wear capes." We will draw from inspiration from everyday heroes, as we learn to be the best person we can be!

Wednesdays: Healthy Storytime with Ayumi

They say that books are the key to knowledge. In the class Healthy Storytime, Ayumi will open the doors to the healthy food world using her literary keys from Japan!

Every week Ayumi will introduce classic Japanese stories that will inspire our Big Kids to eat healthier through handmade books, puppets, and picture cards! This class will enhance cultural awareness by broadening their understanding of the Japanese culture, and enhance their taste buds too!
