Before and After Child Care 2016-2017 Projected Fees
The GECDSB is pleased to endorse the use of licensed, community child care organizations who operate before and after school programs to support GECDSB families. The before and after school program offers more opportunities for children to learn and grow and delivers a seamless day with fewer transitions.
To date the GECDSB has implemented before and after school programming in all schools that have demonstrated sufficient interest to do so. Selected schools may be also offering programs during school breaks or on professional development (PD) days.
Below you will find a link to a table listing each school, the programs available, and the operator’s contact information. Fee information and hours of operation are included. More information can be acquired by contacting the child care agency.

The Extended Day Program
The Extended Day Program is specifically developed for four and five year olds under the operational framework of the Education Act under S.259. The program is optional to families on a fee for service basis. The viability of the Extended Day Program is explored by conducting an annual survey of families' needs. This program will be considered if twenty or more children demonstrate an interest in registering for the program on a consistent basis.
Surveys are currently being collected for the 2015-2016 school year. If you are interested in completing a survey, please see your local school.
