Summer 2018 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 2018 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.
Your child's space in the program for the following September will be considered a priority if completed registration forms have been submitted by June 30 of the preceding school year. Families wishing to register after June 30 for the following school year may be subject to a waitlist.
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.
