We understand the pressure parents face trying to balance work schedules with school drop off and pick up times. That is why we offer a complete before and after school care program catering to all John Stubbs Students from kindergarten to 12 years old.
Our program runs Monday thru Friday, September 4th to June 28th, from 6:45 am to 8:20 am and reopens from 2:30pm till 5:30pm. Please note that we do not provide care during kindergarten gradual entry weeks. Parents are responsible to ensure care and transportation for this period until children start attending school on regular schedule.
We also provide Pro-D day care as well as Summer, spring break and winter camps. Please refer to our camp information section for more details.
We have created a relaxed, inviting space where children can unwind after a hard day. We encourage teamwork and group social play through board games, art projects, Lego tables and more. We even have a bouldering/climbing wall within the space.
Our dedicated and caring bilingual staff strive to nurture and maintain a sense of inclusiveness, helping to build positive relationships and discover the importance of teamwork and diversity. Through collaborative problem-solving, we have been able to implement an effective anti-bullying strategy, which reduces aggressive tendencies and teaches kids to treat others with respect and kindness.
As part of our before and after school care, students needing extra support with their homework will have access to a French/English tutor. Our tutor will assist students with their learning. We believe this service may help both students and those parents who may not feel they can support their child's French homework needs.
Outdoor play is a big part of our program, and students will be able to enjoy our local trails and parks. The Galloping Goose and the Juan de Fuca fields and parks are all within walking distance. We also provide plenty of materials and games to keep them active and engaged on the not-so-nice days.
I have 2 kids at children of the island I am beyond impressed with the program. My toddler is learning so much and my daughter receives tutoring included with after school care. They just expanded and the new outdoor play are is incredible!!!
