After School Programs

Little Medical School of Ottawa offers students grades K-7 an engaging after school enrichment programs. Giving kids a safe and educational after school activity is central to our mission of bettering the lives of children in Ottawa and instilling in them a passion for healthcare, medicine, nursing and veterinary disciplines.
We can work closely with Schools, to customize a complementary curriculum which covers a wide swath of medical and scientific subjects:

  • Understanding the tools that doctors use
  • The human body and organ systems
  • Nutrition and the science of eating
  • Applying basic first aid and treating common sports injuries
  • What pharmacists do and why medicine works
  • Performing CPR and the Heimlich maneuver*
  • Caring for pets and what to do in case of animal injuries
  • Much, much more!

All of our after school programs are taught by exemplary instructors who have passed our rigorous background check process and who have experience with and a natural love of teaching children. We will capture kids’ imaginations with our interactive activities. They’ll role play, work with models, develop skills, draw, think creatively … and most importantly, they’ll learn!*Our program does not offer CPR certification
