School Age Centre

Welcome to the School Age Centre

The School Age Centre is located inside of St. Lawrence Community Centre and has a license capacity of 102 children ages 2 1/2 years to 13 years of age. The School Age Program offers a Preschool Program (30 months to 6 years with a capacity of 47 children) and a Before & After School Program (68 months to 13 years with a capacity of 55 children). Please note that the organization has a “Day Care Space Availability Agreement Form” which states that there is no guarantee to remain in the Centre up to the age of 13. The Before and After School Program provides care on: 1. Instructional days:

  • Before school 7:30 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. and after school 3:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.
  • Day Care staff escort children to community schools which do not have a before and after school program

2. Non Instructional Days:

  • Full time care is provided on PA Days, December Break, March Break and Summer.

Our knowledgeable and dedicated staff provide quality care in a safe, healthy environment. All of our ECE staff are registered with the College of ECE and our Teacher Assistants are experienced in working with children. It is through observation, learning your child’s cues, and consistent parent/staff communication which enables us to build a partnership with families.
