Before and After School Care

Before School Care

Need to get to work or an appointment early? No problem! Get your student's day off to a great start while you get to your early morning appointment on time by using our Before Care program! Each morning, students may be dropped off at the Before Care entrance to the school (by the school store) beginning at 7:00 AM and two of our teachers will welcome them into the 1st grade classrooms. Students remain in the classroom until the bell rings at 8:30 AM, playing quiet games, reading, and/or doing homework. Before Care may be used on a drop-in basis or on a regular schedule. Please see the rate sheet below.

 

After School Care

Students enrolled in our after school program will enjoy an atmosphere of caring, fun and growth, and will also experience some new challenges along the way. This structured after school time is staffed by our staff and teachers and includes a daily routine that will give our students time for refreshment (both body and mind), exercise, homework/reading time, relaxation and the opportunity to learn and grow through the introduction of new skills and games. Logic, math, reading and social interaction will take place and develop as they learn to play hands-on activities such as card games, memory games, checkers, board games, etc. Fine motor skills will be honed through the use of manipulatives, artwork and crafts. Imaginations will be expanded and listening skills fine-tuned as story time takes us to new and exciting places.

This sounds like a busy time after a full day of school; however, these activities will be performed on a rotating schedule. We want your child to come home feeling refreshed and satisfied after a good day at school and happy to have accomplished their homework or learn a new skill. Through our Homework Club, we can also assist your grade 3 - 6 child with homework difficulties and give you that feedback for follow through at home. We are there because we care.

 

Please note that parents must complete an Extended Care Registration Form each year for each child before using the Before or After Care program. Please see the link below for the appropriate form.
