Who We Are

Our Approach


Monotasking


Monotasking, in our Vancouver after school programs, refers to the ability to focus on one job, project or goal at a time and then moving on to the next one.

Self-Regulation


Self-Regulation refers to monitoring and controlling our own behavior, emotions or thoughts. This includes modifying them in accordance with the demands of the situation. Mindfulness is key!

Inquiry-Based Learning


Inquiry-Based Learning refers to an individual who presents questions, problems or scenarios rather than simply established facts or a smooth path to knowledge. This process is assisted by our program facilitators.

Our Story


Mindesign Kids Vancouver after school programs creates unique empowerment programs for children between the ages of 5-12 years old.

We design quality out of school alternatives for busy parents and families.

Our Vancouver after school programs are designed to compliment each child’s developmental needs with fun and practical life skill building activities. The Vancouver out of school programs take place indoors, and importantly outdoors as well, assisting children to connect with nature.

Children in our programs learn the best practices of technology use, communication and socialization. They do this naturally through our specialized self-regulation approach. What is the best part for them? They love it!

Apart from our routine of life skills and character building exercises, we use current trends among our youngster’s today For example, we build virtual worlds using Minecraft® which becomes the foundation for the building components of their imagination, stories and characters. In conjunction with Lego Story Starter® kits and software, we begin to bring children's virtual worlds, stories, characters and imagination into tangible form using building blocks. This touches on many core educational components found in school curriculums today.
