Les Petits Soleils Before and After School Care



In addition to care offered all non-school PD days, we will also now provide full-day childcare via camps offered at Christmas Break, Spring Break and Summer Break for children in Kindergarten to Grade 6! Registration is NOT exclusive to families who attend the out of school care during the school year. We can accept any student, from any school, registered in Kindergarten to Grade 6. Please contact us if you would like to be emailed information about each of these camps, held at Colchester Hall. For more information, please check out this brochure outlining the summer camps we offered last year. More information.

We offer both full-time and part-time care to children in Kindergarten to Grade 6. Though we offer part-time and casual care, these spots are not guaranteed and, should space be limited, can be relinquished for full-time requests. Part-time spots will only be guaranteed if the full-time rate is paid. In order to schedule children and staff, we require part-time care to fall on the same days and times every week. Please note that we are able to accept Kindergarten students before their morning class or after their afternoon class; however, care during the half day when they are not attending Kindergarten can not be covered.

For more information, or to register your child in the current school year, please email or phone us. Pre-registration forms to hold a spot in 2017 and beyond can be submitted by mail or in person at the school.

We love positive feedback from our families! To hear what parents have to say about our care, please take a look at this document.

Care on PD days and holiday breaks
Additional childcare will be provided at Campbelltown School, under Alberta Children's Services license:
  • On early dismissal Wednesdays
  • All day on Professional Development/No School days, including the week of November break
  • All day over Teachers' Convention

As it is Elk Island Public School's policy that our program unfortunately is unable to have access to Ecole Campbelltown School year-round, additional childcare will be provided at Colchester Hall, operating with the same policies and high-quality childcare standards as we offer during the school year, but without the requirement of falling under Alberta Childrens Services licensing parameters (as programs can operate without a license as long as the period of time lasts less than 12 weeks):
  • Approximately 5 days over Christmas Break
  • Spring Break
  • Summer Break weekly camps

*please note that subsidy through Alberta Children's Services will unfortunately not be accessible for any care offered at Colchester Hall.

** Students are required to bring a bag lunch when childcare lasts all day. **
