DOORSTEPS CORNER

 

OUR MISSION

To provide accessible resources to the communities we serve through innovative programming and effective partnerships.

 

Doorsteps Neighbourhood Services (D.N.S.) is operating two programs at Tumpane for the 2016 – 2017 school year.

 

The Breakfast Program was introduced in January of this year. Breakfast starts at 7:30 AM and ends at 8:45 AM. The student intake started off slowly but we have reached our full capacity since the new school year started. Parents can feel at ease knowing that their children are receiving a well balanced meal to start the day. All meals are prepared fresh every day on site. Supervision is provided until the bell rings at 8:45AM.

 

The After School Program (A.S.P.) has been at Tumpane for a number of years. We extend a warm welcome to our old students and also our newcomers. Doorsteps is happy to offer these services at a minimal cost to the school community, and we must thank the school administration for partnering with our organization.

Our programs follow the Ontario After School guidelines, and our meals and healthy snacks follow the Ontario Food guidelines. Students enjoy a variety of activities and are supervised by our trained staff. Our afternoon routine includes a healthy snack, homework help and daily physical activities to name a few.

 

Activity Highlights

Program rules established and students participated in making this agreement.

Birthday chart – we celebrate each other.

Students made “thankful jars”. Each student wrote four things they were thankful for.

Teamwork and communication skills – students worked in groups to carve pumpkins.

Remembrance day wreath – each student made a poppy flower and discussed the importance of living in a free country.

 

We welcome feedback from all our parents and partners to better serve the needs of our community. Our office can be reached at 416 – 243-5480 and on the web at www.doorsteps.ca.
