If families need care unexpectedly, the after school program is available on a limited basis, subject to available space and the following:

  • Your child must be in school on the same day that they attend the After School Program.
  • Your child must be provided with an extra snack and appropriate clothing, particularly on wet-weather days. If your child is in the nursery program, there are additional rest-time items you may wish to provide as well.
  • All children who are not picked up from their school program by 10 minutes past dismissal time will join the After School program and will be charged accordingly.
  • Children in the After School Program who are not picked up at the agreed upon time are charged a $5/min late fee. This fee also applies to short-term schedule adjustments.
  • Children must be at least 3 years of age to participate in the After School Program.
  • Nursery children joining the After School Program must have their teacher’s approval before enrolling in the program.

Enrichment programs for Grades (subject to availability):

Our After School Program offers an engaging environment that often includes specialty classes and activities that might include: handwork, chess and math clubs, chamber orchestra, choir, dance, games, cooking and hiking. These programs may come with an additional surcharge.
