Extended Hour Programs (2-12 years of age)

This unique program is designed to help families whose work or schooling hours extend past the ordinary  “Day Care” hours of operation and/or include the need for care on Saturdays. Very few programs like this exist in Canada and although we cannot accommodate all of the various needs that families have, this is the most flexible program we offer and we are pleased to provide this diversity to our community.  We have several categories of families (i.e. regular – casual – occasional) with varying fee arrangements for each, so this program is really best explained in person.  Do give us a call for more information at 204-889-2689.
