CAG After School Programs for 2017-18

Posted Spring 2017

Due to changes made by the Government of Ontario to the Child Care Act that came into effect for the 2017-18 school year, CAG has had to make changes to the after school care we provide as are no longer permitted to include children aged under six in our regular after school programs.

Brantwood Fieldhouse
After school care for junior and senior kindergarten (JK and SK) children at Brantwood is no longer offered as of September 2017. Daycare licensing would be required and this is not possible at Brantwood based on a number of factors, including:
• Proximity to the river
• Lack of a fenced yard
• Size of the building
• Feedback from the licensing office

Old Town Hall
Following conversations with provincial staff and assistance from the Andrew Fleck Child Care Services, we feel optimistic that the Old Town Hall could meet the requirements for an after school care program for junior and senior kindergarten children. CAG is currently pursuing the acquisition of a license for the Old Town Hall.
If a license is obtained, we will have room for up to 16 JK and SK children at this location.
Some changes would be implemented with the new after school care:
• Due to increased costs associated with a licensed program, the price for one of the spots in this program will be $300/month.
• The kindergarten program would operate in the downstairs room, Grades 1 – 6 in the upstairs room.

Update - July 2017

The CAG Kindergarten After School Program offered at Old Town Hall for September 2017 was cancelled due to insufficient registration.

Update - October 2017

CAG is undertaking a survey to gauge demand for September 2018. If there is demonstrated demand and we can meet licensing requirements, we would offer a program starting September 2018. If you have children who will be kindergarten age in the next few years, please complete the survey here. Survey closes at midnight on Friday, November 17, 2017.
