Child Care in our Schools

A variety of child care programs are offered in our schools. These programs range from Extended Day Programs for Full Day Kindergarten Students, Before and After School Programs for 6-12 year olds, and Full Day programs offered in childcare centres. The programs are operated by licensed not-for-profit child care organizations. The hours, costs and services provided at each site vary. (Information on each of these Child Care Organizations, their pricing, hours of operation, and registration details can be found on each organization’s website. See Directory below for information regarding which Child Care Providers operate in the various schools.

Extended Day Program for Full Day Kindergarten Students: 

Compliant with the operational framework of Education Act under s.259, Peterborough Victoria Northumberland and Clarington Catholic District School Board will be providing, on a fee basis, through third party providers, extended day programs for full day kindergarten students at the school locations as noted below during the 2021-22 school year and beyond, contingent on sufficient demand being present. Some operators are licensed to offer the program at a particular school, but may be waiting on a sufficient number of families to commit before running the program.

Peterborough Victoria Northumberland and Clarington Catholic District School Board is required to determine its own base fees if an extended day program was offered directly by the school board. By establishing these fees in advance, PVNCCDSB confirms that should a third party provider cease operations, and where a program is deemed viable, the board would provide the extended day program directly, on a timely basis, based on the following base fees: 

For 2021/22 school year: Before School (from 7:00 am – Morning Bell time) $13.00/day

After School (from End of Day Bell – 6:00 pm $15.00/day 

For both Before School & After School $25.00/day 

For full day (7:00 am – 6:00 pm, non-instructional day) $50.00/day 

It is the Board’s intention to seek third party operators to offer Extended Day programs, and as such fees will vary from the above rates.
