Sweet N Silly KinderCare Offers Fun Social Learning for Growing Minds

by Jocelyn Ottenbreit

Ron Biberdorf, Principal of Venture Heights school in Martensville, saw a need for an educational, fun program for kindergarten kids that could be available every day of the week. Keeping them in a school like routine, Biberdorf, along with Educational Assistant Jaimie Doell, came up with a program called Sweet N Silly KinderCare.

This program started in the 2021/2022 school year and is an extension of learning that is run full days on the opposite days of kindergarten, allowing continued learning opportunities for little growing minds.

Open to all Kindergarten students in Martensville and surrounding area, it is currently run this year on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. “If I receive enough registration for days opposite of Venture Heights Kindergarten days, we can run Monday through Friday in the 2022/2023 school year,” said Doell.

This fun social building program offers educational activities, library time, sensory play, dress up, and free time play stations. Students also get to take part in small science experiments, crafting, outside exploring and learning.

Sweet N Silly KinderCare is located at Venture Heights School and runs from 8:30am – 3:15 pm. Before and After Care hours are 7:30am – 5pm. They provide supervised outside recess, and indoor body breaks when weather does not co-operate.

Doell stated, “I also host day off care from 7:30am – 5pm for days such as PD days, Days in Lieu, and February/Easter Breaks. This isn’t just for Kindergarten age, this is for ALL K-8 students from anywhere in the Valley. There are limited spots for these days and the cost will be $35 per student.”

Registration is now open for the 2022/2023 year. If you would like to register or want more information about the program, contact Jaimie at sweetnsilly.care@gmail.com, or call 639-998-4788.
