The Waterloo Region District School Board (WRDSB) offers two optional, fee-based Before and After School Programs in our schools for our students: Extended Day for children in JK – Grade 2 and Youth Development programs for children in Grades 3 – 6. These programs are led by Early Childhood Educators out of full-day kindergarten classrooms.

School-based child care programs offer you access to high quality programs in one convenient location, with no waiting lists.

Programs are offered from 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., Monday to Friday, PD Days, March Break and the non-statutory week at Christmas.

All programs offer:

  • flexible registration
  • nutritional snacks
  • age-appropriate programming and resources

These programs are offered in schools with Full Day Kindergarten and are eligible for a subsidy through the Region of Waterloo.
