Child Care


Website-Programs-Child-Care-Banner.pngThere are a number of child care opportunities for before and after school care and/or kinder care for our students through a series of community and organizational partnerships. Information on contacts and locations can be accessed here but we urge people to make arrangements early as there are a limited number of spaces for these popular programs.

YMCA

Our community partnership with the YMCA has been since 2016 and has provided facility sites with services within our community for Before and After School Care (BASC).

These services are for children in a variety of age groups depending on each facility site. Operated by YMCA staff, services are available at École Montrose, Riverstone Public School, I.V. Macklin Public School at Holy Cross, Parkside Montessori at St. Gerard, and at the Patterson facility.

Please note that these sites have limited spaces, therefore we urge parents to contact the numbers below for information on how to register.
