After School Policies
Welcome to the Early Achievers After School program offering exciting activities in the areas of Fine Arts, Enrichment, and Academics with a bonus of outside recreation and exploration. Our After School programs are facilitated by dedicated educators who bring together their wealth of experiences to provide the most outstanding educational opportunities to enrich the minds of children.
Hours of Operation
Our afternoon programs run Monday to Friday from 2:45 – 5:15, with pick up by 5:30.
Please note: A late fee of $40 will be charged for late pick up.
Holidays and School Closures
The Early Achievers school year program runs from September to June. We close for all statutory holidays, Easter and Christmas vacations. Visit our website regarding these specific dates. If by chance we close due to weather or other unforeseen reasons, a message will be posted on our Facebook page and also on local radio stations. If schools should close due to weather during the school day there will be no bus pick-up for Early Achievers as we will also be closing as soon as possible. Therefore, you will be responsible for picking up your child from school on those days. Generally, if schools close we will close too.
Professional Development Days
Full and part day programs are available during Professional Development days. Limited space is available and pre registration is necessary.
Half Day: 11:30 – 2:45 $25.00 per day
Full Day: 8:30 – 2:45 $35.00 per day
Children will have numerous opportunities to go outside and will therefore need to be dressed accordingly. We suggest hats, mitts, snow pants and boots for winter weather and hats, shorts, T-shirts, sweater and sunscreen for warmer weather.
Personal toys and games are not permitted at our After School program. Toys and games from home will need to be kept in the child’s book bag at all times unless notification is given otherwise.
One half of the first month’s tuition is payable at the time of registration for students to hold a space for September. This deposit is non-refundable and will be credited toward September’s tuition. Prorated monthly payments will begin thereafter.
*A $25 penalty will be charged for all NSF or returned cheques.
Cheque (Monthly Post Dated Cheques dated for the 1st of the month for the remainder of the year or payment in full).
PRE-Authorized Debit (PAD) (Direct Debit for the 1st of each month)
Visa or MasterCard (Monthly or payment in full – 2.25% user fee will be charged)
Cash – not accepted monthly
When registering your child(ren), you are committing to the full school year. You will be required to pay for the remaining months in the program if you decide to withdraw after January 1st and before the school year is complete. A 30 day written notice must be submitted in writing no later than January 1st. Depending on when this notice is given, there may or may not be a balance of fees due as our fees are prorated monthly.
We provide healthy nutrition to your child with water available daily. We suggest sending along a reusable water bottle labeled with your child’s name. If your child has an allergy, dietary restriction, or would like to bring his/her own snack, please provide a healthy alternative following Canada’s Food Guide. No ‘junk food’ please. Please note our school food allergies: all nuts, seafood, kiwi, and egg (subject to change).
