BEFORE AND AFTER SCHOOL CARE
Before-School Program – starting September 5th
Students in Junior Kindergarten through Grade 5 can be dropped off by parents in our Junior School lunchroom between 7:30 - 8 a.m, and an Early Childhood Educator will be there to welcome your daughter with books, puzzles and colouring activities, designed to start her day in a peaceful, calm environment. At 8 a.m., students from Grades 1-5 go outside for regular morning supervision. Kindergarten students will remain with an Early Childhood Educator until classes begin at 9 a.m. Note: For all students in Kindergarten, supervising teachers are on duty from 8 a.m. until classes begin at 9 a.m. There is no fee for supervision of Kindergarten students from 8-9 a.m.
The before-school care program is available on a regular basis, or on an as needed/drop-in basis for students in Junior Kindergarten through Grade 5. Please note that the safety of our students is always our first priority; any student arriving at Junior School before 8 a.m. will automatically be placed in this program, and the family’s Elmwood account will be charged. The cost is $5 per child per day ($25 for the full week). A family registering for the entire term will receive a discount of 15% ($380 versus $437.50) per child.
Note: A registration form for the Before-School Care Program will be sent to you in August.
After-School Program – starting September 4th
Students must be picked up promptly at the end of classes. Children whose parents are unavoidably detained will be placed in the After-School Program and $30 will be charged to their school account.
Should you need longer after school care, you may register your child(ren) in the program which runs until 5:30 p.m. and is led by Mrs. Arlene Clark-Brown. An additional charge will be levied after 5:30 p.m. You can select the full five-day program or any option of your choice (for example, Mondays and Wednesdays). Using the Junior School dining room as “home base”, the program consists of playtime, a supervised study period, planned recreational activities and a nutritious snack. The emphasis of the program is on creating a nurturing, structured atmosphere, where each student feels welcome. On very rare occasions, a student whose behaviour is disruptive will be asked to withdraw from the program.
The cost of the After-School Program is $2,800 per student, (pro-rated, if necessary) billed to your account as follows:
Term I September 27, 2019 $950
Term II January 31, 2020 $950
Term III March 27, 2020 $900
The cost of this program is fully tax deductible, and a tax receipt will be issued automatically based on the calendar year. If your child requires occasional after school care on a per diem basis, please inform the Junior School office. A charge of $30 will automatically be billed to your school account.
Note: A registration form for the After-School Program will be sent to you in August.
