Our before and after school program at Ecole Regent Park is very different from a usual childcare centre. Because the children are older (grade five and six), the program has more of a casual, home-like atmosphere. We find that the older children really enjoy the program. It provides them with a safe place to be after school, and they receive our support as they work through their social development issues. Our Regent Park program is often called “The Pre-Teen Club” and the children who make up the program have a lot of control over how they spend their time. This year due to changes in the school we will have one room set up full time, and the second room as a roll away. Because of COVID-19 we will have two cohorts. The cohorts will rotate between the rooms on a weekly basis.  Inservice care is not available at our Regent Park site and we are also closed for the school Christmas break, spring break and summer holidays. We work closely with the staff at Ecole Regent Park to ensure a good transition between the school day and the after school program!
