Before- and After-School Programs - Expression of Interest for 2017-2018 School Year

This survey is for families who will have children in Kindergarten to Grade 6 for next school year (2017-2018)

To help us determine interest in, and plan for, before- and after-school programming for the 2017-2018 school year, we are asking our parents/guardians and families to answer a few quick questions regarding programs at your child(ren)'s school. The intent of a before- and/or after-school program is to provide care for children in Kindergarten to Grade 6 in our elementary schools outside of regular school hours. A before- and/or after-school program (e.g. 7:30 - 8:30 a.m., 3:20 - 5:30 p.m.) may be provided at an elementary school where there is enough interest to run a viable program to support our families.

For information on before- and after-school programs currently offered at our schools for the 2016-2017 school year, please click here.

Should you have any questions about this survey or child care at one of our schools, please contact Ann McDonald, Early Years Lead, toll free at 1-877-275-7771 ext. 315, or email her by clicking here.

**Please be aware that completing this survey does not register your child for before- or after-school programming.  Should you wish to arrange child care for you child, please click here for a list of programs by community and contact information.**

* 2. Please list the age(s) of your child(ren).

* 3. Does your child(ren) already attend the before- and after-school program at your school?

* 4. If provided at your child's school, will you be enrolling your child(ren) in the before- and/or after-school program for the 2017-2018 school year?

Fees for both before- and after-school care are estimated to be in the range of $22.00 to $26.00 per day

A before-school only fee is estimated to be approximately $7.00 to $12.00 per day.
An after-school only fee is estimated to be approximately $13.00 to $18.00 per day.

* 6. Would you be interested in child care programming on PD days and in the summer?

* 7. What before-school hours of operation would best reflect your family's needs?
