Activities Overview

inset_activityBee Me Kidz operates every Saturday morning throughout the school year in two Saint John locations. The program is currently offered to students in grades one to five. By starting at a young age, children can build their learning potential early in their school careers.

Each week’s session begins at 8:45am for children (grades 4-5) and their families in Bee Me Leaderz and at 10:30am for Bee Me Kidz (grades 1-3) and their families. Both groups enjoy a delicious family brunch where families can enjoy each other’s company over a healthy, homemade meal.

After brunch, parents/guardians attend a Parents Group where they can socialize and provide feedback on the program. They also receive a summary of what their children are learning that day along with strategies to reinforce the lesson of the day at home.

During the parent support hour, Bee Me Kidz offers free babysitting for brothers and sisters of the Bee Me Kidz children. Parents attending the Parents Group for three consecutive weeks receive a free basket of fresh fruits and vegetables in the fourth week.

While parents, brothers and sisters enjoy their sessions, the Bee Me Kidz/ Leaderz children take part in fun activities that develop their social and emotional skills through play, structured games, stories and yoga, along with lessons from the PATHS® Curriculum.
