What makes Moorelands Kids unique?
Our Habits & Qualities programs offer year-round opportunities for kids to learn, practice and benefit from positive life and leadership skills. We set the stage for children as young as six to become leaders – first of themselves and then in their community.
Our programs, rooted in positive youth development, are designed to provide opportunities for kids to develop leadership skills and qualities and practise them in a safe space. Through our Habits and Qualities, kids develop and practise critical thinking and decision making; emotional intelligence; communication; conflict resolution; problem-solving; strategic thinking; influencing skills and teamwork.
Our programs promote: 1) physical literacy; 2) life skills development; 3) character development; 4) cultural competence; 5) tolerance and appreciation for diversity; 6) connections with peers, role models and community.
Kids leave our programs with the leadership skills they need to succeed and the ability to build leadership in others.
