Additional Activities for Kids
In addition to activities based on arts, sports, fun learning, and academics, Kids Corner has other activities for kids to inspire and motivate them after school hours, during camps, and over breaks. All are professionally supervised.
Babysitting – CPR and First Aid Training
Learn how to be more proficient while caring for children. Learn aspects of awareness, of keeping a child attentive and keeping a child entertained. Learn some techniques when a child is disobedient, and learn some aspects of staying attentive when caring for multiple children.
Later Kids Corner teaches how to care for children (and adults) who are having medical emergencies. We will go over basic first aid treatment for injuries and illnesses, as well as how to properly do CPR. After this class students will be American Heart Association-certified to perform First Aid and CPR (valid for 2 years) and will obtain their own CPR book and certification card.
Start your own business. In these five sessions, students will work with one or two partners to build their idea into a business. (A few ideas are supplied if kids are not yet passionate about any one venture). We and the students build a web site, host it, and publicize it by the end of the week. Order taking, fulfillment, contracts, and even expansion (with partners or employees) are discussed.
Kids Corner lets students revel safely in the winter. So long as there is snow, children will be making snowmen, snow-sculptures, and snow-forts. Advanced children can even try an “igloo”. Each day concludes with some snow activity – sledding, snowshoeing, cross-country-skiing or ice skating.
On weeks with no snow, we conduct “winter explorations”, learning how animals store food, find food, keep away from predators, and find their way home. Let it snow!
