Park Play does offer care on PD Days through our School's Out program, however enrollment in Before and After School Care does not secure a spot for your child. Enrolment does provide you with an opportunity to preregister for our School's Out programs. Care is also available for the February Break and Easter Break. Please see School's Out on the side menu for more information.
Children who are enrolled in our After School care will be provided with a snack once they arrive at the church. Our snacks consist of two or more food groups with at least one serving of fruits and/or vegetables. For example, one afternoon we may have cheese and crackers with cucumber. Children will also be given a glass of water with their snack. Once a child is finished with his or her snack, he or she will be responsible for washing his or her cup.
All of our snacks will be peanut free. If your child has special dietary restrictions, we will try our best to work within them, however, we may require your assistance on occasion. If you have any further questions regarding the snacks being provided, please contact the program administrator.
Park Play provides bus transportation to and from the three schools. Students will be dropped off in the following order: Centennial, MacNeill, St. Angela's. A Park Play staff member will accompany the children on the bus to ensure children get off at the correct school. Students will be picked up from school in the following order: St. Angela's, MacNeill, Centennial.
