Mrs. Sam Harless Extended Education Department Chair
Mrs. Sam Harless is our department chair for The Extended Education Department and our office administrator. She is a driving force with child-like energy that keeps the team on their toes. Mrs. Harless has been working with kids ever since she was a tween, which helped prepare her in becoming a mother to her two month old son, Wyatt. Mrs. Harless is passionate about getting to know each child individually and creating personal relationships so the kids know they are going to be where they are loved. Mrs. Harless's attention to detail and hunger for fun create an environment that is not only safe for your children, but also a place they look forward to coming to.
Thank you, Mrs. Harless, for loving our kids so much!
The Extended Education Department is for children in Kindergarten to Grade 5. We offer before and after school care, as well as care on E-Learning days, snow days, and all school breaks. In this program, we operate 2 classrooms: E1: Happy Campers (Kindergarten and 1st Grade), and E2: Ark Clubhouse (2nd through 5th Grade). These classrooms focus on providing a fun, safe environment for our elementary kids who stay with us after school. Not only do we love to have fun by participating in group activities, but we also encourage the kids to utilize the help of their teachers with their homework. Because we work with the older children, our opportunities to teach and support social growth are endless. With classes that are filled with high energy and continuous fun, our Extended Education department lets our older kids have a safe place to hang out after a long school day.
