ReCONNECT: A newly licensed after school program promoting empowerment, physical literacy, problem solving, and much more.
The northside of Fredericton has a newly licensed after school program quite unlike any other in the city. With a core focus on teaching the value of leadership, critical thinking, health and wellness, ReCONNECT is a unique program designed and implemented by The Ville Cooperative for children aged 5-12. Located in the recently converted Alexander Gibson Memorial School, the program promotes empowerment, physical literacy and problem solving through activities such as rock climbing on the 20ft climbing wall, cooking and baking in the licensed kitchens, quilting and sewing, woodworking and 3D printing in the ideation lab, and agriculture in the vertical garden room and outdoor gardens
Full time registration is $100/week. The program runs Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday 2pm-5:30pm and Wednesdays 12pm – 5:30pm, and includes District Personal Development days. There are limited part-time spots available as well for a minimum 2 days a week with a fixed schedule with a rate of $25/day. This also includes District Personal Development Days days for the same rate if it falls within the predetermined part-time schedule. School district busses accommodate transportation to ReCONNECT from the following schools: Gibson Neill Elementary School, Devon Middle School, and École Les Éclaireurs.
