Morning Program:  All children attending our morning program will be given an opportunity to have breakfast if they have not already done so.  Parents who want their child(ren) to have breakfast at school must send their child with a packed breakfast, we will not be providing breakfast.  Please ensure that the food they bring are healthy choices.  We are a NUT FREE centre, please keep your child’s food free of nuts and nut products.  We also ask that you send water only, in a recyclable container, we are also a JUICE FREE centre. There will also be time for physical activity either in the gym or in the playground as well as quiet activities.  When the bell rings, they will be dismissed to go to their classrooms.

Afternoon Program:  Children will walk to the Out of School Care Program after school from their classrooms.  Kinders will be picked up from their classrooms. We will be providing a healthy snack, including fruits and/or vegetables and water among other healthy choices.  As a regular part of our program the children will also have an opportunity to bake and/or prepare their own snack in the kitchen.  Should your child have special dietary needs, please discuss with the supervisor.  Our afternoon program will also provide opportunities for children to get outside or engage in activities in the gym, as well as crafts, table games etc.
