The Cathedral Area Coop Daycare is excited to offer a new Before & After Program at our partner location at the corner of Cameron and 13th avenue in Westminster United Church. This program is open to students attending Ecole Connaught Community School, Holy Rosary School and St. Pius. Our program offers families full-time care, which includes PD days and school holidays or care just for PD days/school holiday.
The Cathedral Area Coop Daycare walks children to and from Connaught School and Holy Rosary each day, as well as the closest bus stop for student attending St. Pius School. On school days in the morning, after a light breakfast, children are provided a short period of time to engage in table top activities before leaving for school. Afternoon snacks are served when children came back from school, and students are then given the opportunity to choose activities based on their interests which may include time spent in the facilities gymnasium.
Programming on PD days and school holidays will run all day, with a variety of activities planned for children to participate in. Use of the facilities gymnasium will also be available on these days, as will group trips to nearby playgrounds and parks, in addition to, field trips to the museum, science centre and other destinations. The Cathedral Area Coop Daycare requires children attending on PD Days and school holidays to provide their own lunch; however, there will be access to a fridge and microwave during these times. Periodically, the Before & After Program will arrange food service through Healthy Hunger (https://healthyhunger.ca/)
