After School & Daycare Programing

Our Programs

St. Mary's Catholic School employs two certified Early Childhood Educators (ECEs) and additional support staff to implement our After School and Daycare Programs.  We have a beautiful space for our After School and Daycare Programs, including full access to the school facilities including 2 gyms, 3 outside playgrounds and our hot lunch program.

Ages

Our programs are open to everyone in the community.  Our After School Program is for students aged 5-11 and our onsite licensed Daycare welcomes children from 30 months of age and up.

Rates for Daycare (8:00 AM - 5:00 PM): $200/full-time child aged 30 months. The government subsidizes the difference.

After School Program rates: Effective September 5, 2023 our rates vary depending on the month. Full-time monthly rates are $200/month. Whole days where school is not in session fees are $40/day additionally. Noon dismissal days at $25/day extra.

Registration

Registrations and payments for all our programs go through our school office. If you need to drop off when the school is closed, you can always pay or drop off registrations in the 'dropbox' in the Daycare. Please drop by or call and speak to the secretary. If you require more information please ask to speak to our Daycare Manager, Ms. Wanda Dunn.  Spaces are sometimes available, but hurry, we fill up quick! 

We are blessed to have room for a 20 space Daycare although we usually only take 16 children a a time. We have an amazing bright, clean well-cared for space! We have  a separate sleeping room for nap-time. The children have access to our school activities that are age-appropriate for them.

During the school year, we run an After School Program from 3:00 - 5:30 PM daily and we are open all day on Non-Instructional (NI) days. On NI days we are open from 8:00-5:30 PM.

In the summer, we run weekly themed Summer After School Programs for ages 5-11.  

Our programming is vibrant and runs 12 months of the year. This program is open from 8:30-5:00 PM daily.

Mrs. Dunn oversees all these programs with a capable certified ECE and ECEA staff. Please contact her through our school office at 250-426-5017 or STMdaycareASP@cisnd.ca
