Cleaver Kids is an early introduction to 4-H Alberta through fun, hands on learning that is age appropriate for youth aged 6 to 8 years.
To register with Cleaver Kids for the 2020-2021 club year, the child must be age six as of January 1, 2021 or must not have reached age nine by that time. Those who will turn nine before January 1, 2021 will register as Junior 4-H members.
Cleaver Kids enjoy learning about 4-H by first learning about the basic requirements and then focusing on the four areas of skills development. 4-H Clubs can be creative and design stand-alone activities that foster skills development in a progressive manner. Stand-alone learning activities, that are age appropriate and different than 4-H Members’ project activities, serve to prepare Cleaver Kids to transition into Junior 4-H Members and progress through the 4-H program. Keeping learning fresh at each stage helps to ensure that they remain engaged and interested. Engagement of Cleaver Kids at club level is about FUN, FUN, FUN and the fun requires family involvement.
