Before and After School Care

We are now accepting registrations online for Alwin Holland, Bert Ambrose , Duncan Cran, Robert Ogilvie, and Taylor.

For Ecole Central or CM Finch transportation between a Before and After School site listed above and the school may now be possible (fall 2021). Please register and our coordinator will be in touch. 

With May 2021 changes to Child Care Licensing Regulations we are able to provide childcare to those registered in before and after school care on Non-Instructional Days, and select days during school breaks. Depending on interest care may be provided in one or two school sites. Preference will be given to students already registered in SD60 BASC programs.
