Using the form below, you may register your child for Extended Care as either a regular user or drop-in user. If you choose regular use, you will select the day(s) of the week on which your child will use the program(s). The regular user fee (shown in parentheses) is a single annual charge billed at the beginning of the school year through SmartTuition, and has been calculated according to our school calendar. This fee is nonrefundable (ex. snow days, student absences, etc.).

If you would like to use Extended Care on an occasional basis, you can register your child as a drop-in user. For Before-Care, drop-in users will be charged a flat rate of $15 per day for the 2s and $12 per day for 3s and 4s. The 2s After-Care flat rates are $15 for a 2:00 p.m. pick up, $30 for a 3:30 p.m. pick up, and $45 for a 5:30 pick up per day.
