Our After-school Early Learning & Childcare program provides a wide variety of activities, keeping in mind each child’s experiences, development, strengths and interests.
Boys & Girls Clubs are the largest provider of after school programs in Canada. Our approach to working with children and youth is grounded in the latest research and meets the developmental needs of the children at a very important time in their lives.
It is estimated that 60% of children under 12 spend their after school time being home alone while being sedentary. Our program seeks to change these statistics by providing diverse, engaging, educational activities for every child that comes through our doors.
Daily/weekly schedules will be posted on the After-school bulletin board and copies will be sent home with the youth. The weekly program will be provided in an open and flexible environment where playful exploration, problem solving and creativity are encouraged and planned.
The program will be offered in an intellectually, socially and culturally engaging environment where communication, literacy and respect for diversity is valued and supported.
Our program exposes kids to a variety of exiting opportunities including:
- Weekling swimming lessons
- STEM activities
- Rookie League Baseball program
- Field trips
- Kids Tech Nation program (coding etc.)
We pride ourselves on the affordability of our programs. Our fees for the after school program are:
- Full time rate – $85 per week
- Part time rate – $20 per day
- Family discount – $15 reduction for second child
