The Program
The STARS Program is for children in JK- Grade 6 at McMurrich Public School, Regal Road Junior Public School, Kensington Community School, and  Rawlinson Community School. It provides a wide variety of enjoyable activities during the after school hours. The program includes drama, arts & crafts, and indoor/outdoor games and activities.

Our Staff
We hire well-trained and experienced childcare workers into our children’s program. Our staff bring an outstanding experience and knowledge base with them. Our staff have qualifications in HIGH FIVE, First Aid/CPR, and CATCH Training. Our counselors are fun, energetic and have a strong commitment to quality children’s programming.

Asset Building
Research by the Search Institute has identified 40 “Developmental Assets”, which have a tremendous influence on young people’s lives. Mastering these assets helps children and youth make wise decisions, choose positive paths, and develop into competent, caring, and responsible adults. We follow a weekly schedule based on Asset Building themes.

C.A.T.C.H. Kids is a recreation program designed to promote behaviours that assist in developing and maintaining health in school-age children.  The primary goal is to promote healthy physical activity behaviours. 

HIGH FIVE Quality At Play
St. Alban’s Boys and Girls Club is a proud partner in Parks and Recreation Ontario’s HIGH FIVE® program.  This program provides agencies with tools for measuring the success of their recreation programs for children in the area of healthy childhood  development. When children participate in recreational play, they develop physically, emotionally, socially and cognitively. What they learn at play provides a strong foundation that will help prepare them for future life experiences. Through our programs we strive to provide activities and environments where children feel safe, welcome, competent, connected, empowered and special.
