Summer 2017 School-Age Programs 

In partnership with community child care operators, we are pleased to support your child care needs, offering full-day child care programs in select schools across Simcoe County. See the list of Summer 2017 School-Age Programs.


Please contact the child care organization that is listed as the operator in your school to register for the program directly.

B&A program operators will strive to accommodate part-time scheduling; the availability of part-time scheduling will be at the discretion of the B&A operator. 

It is important for families to register for B&A programs before the end of the preceding school year.  Decisions about whether a program has enough enrolment to operate will be confirmed in June.  A program will not operate when it does not show it will meet the minimum enrolment required.


Hours of operation vary based on the needs of families in each school; child care operators will confirm hours in June of the preceding year.  Contact the operator directly to confirm B&A program hours at each school. 


All B&A programs are offered on a fee-for-service basis.  Fees are the same in all programs.
