We understand that for many parents the school day ends before their work day. In order to meet the needs of our families, we offer age appropriate after school care for our Junior Primary to Grade 6 children.
Our Primary to Grade 6 children are cared for from 3:30 p.m. (3:00 p.m. on Fridays) until 5:30 p.m. at a nominal cost while our Junior Primary children are cared for from 2:00 p.m. until 3:30 p.m., with the cost included in our fees or for those wishing to remain beyond 3.30 p.m. until 5.30 p.m. for a reasonable fee.
All the children begin this part of their day with a healthy snack followed by supervised outside play on our well-equipped playground when the weather permits. In the event of inclement weather, indoor activities are organized for the children. There is an opportunity for the children to complete homework if they wish. An array of after school clubs are also offered to our Elementary students dependent upon grade level. Some of these clubs and activities include Yoga, Gardening, Mandarin, Running club, Basketball club, Guy Time, and Karate.
A program of child care is also offered on in-service days, during March Break and in June after school has ended. Tax receipts are provided. As one of the top junior primary schools, Halifax parents can rest assured that their children are learning and engaged even after the school day is over.
