A place where amazing things Get Done!
1st Class After Class - New Brighton School is located in the New Brighton elementary school Calgary, it is located right next the New Brighton community Centre. We run out of the school gymnasium and serve all families of the New Brighton School. This location offers a Before and After School program only. Our Kindergarten program runs at the New Brighton Community Centre. At 1st Class After Class – New Brighton School we believe that each child is unique in their talent, skills and interests and we are committed to providing an environment that encourages the children to use these talents and skills while discovering new ones.
Our staff dedicates a large part of our programming to Social Development through Art/Craft Experiences, Literacy Activities, clubs, Leadership Programs, professional and well thought out curriculums, designed to establish a strong skill base and love of learning and so much more with our educators who are trained and qualified to provide a superior level of instruction and teaching.
It is a time for story and language development, music and movement activities, and other varied learning experiences.
Our programs all have a pretend and learn area devoted to developing a child’s sense of “make believe”.
Before & After Grade 1-6
Our before- and after-care programs go well beyond homework help. We support children in becoming the kindest, most capable, and most resilient version of themselves.
With regular outdoor time and planned indoor activities, our children experience a world of movement, dance and recreation.
Books allow children to enter a world of “make believe” and learn about new and exciting things.
Our programs use a research based curriculum that is individualized to every age, with planned activities that combine learning and fun to create happy, curious kids.
