Lendrum Elementary School
Welcome to Lendrum Site! We are a two room out of school care. Here we provide service for children attending Lendrum School, grades 1-6. Our educators strive to be researchers together with the children. Being co-researchers allows experiences to be deeper and fuller. Using the Alberta Curriculum Framework for Early Learning and Child Care, we can extend what the children are already engaging in. We have a diverse team of educators coming from many different teaching and learning experiences.
“It must not be forgotten that the basic law of children’s creativity is that its value lies not in its results, not in the product of creation, but in the process it. It is not important what the children create, but that they do create, that they exercise and implement their creative imagination”
- Lev Vygotsky

☼ Some Summer Support ☼
Summer time is definitely a welcome time. We get to enjoy longer days, plenty activities around the city, and especially warmer weather! Although summer is obviously awesome, it can also have some subtle struggles. The adjustment between school and summer routines may be challenging for children.
To help ease this transition we would like to share this resource from Southeast Edmonton Early Childhood Community Coalition. The following information can help to ease some sizzling emotions the hot summer days may bring.
