Welcome
SCHOOL BREAK CAMPS!


      


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.

Specific to Kindergarten students only:
To respond to a childcare need in high demand at Campbelltown School, we will now be offering preschool classes for 4 AND 5-year-olds combined in the afternoons via Les Petits Soleils' PRESCHOOL (a different licensed program requiring a separate registration from the out of school care program). Parents must secure registration for their Kindergarten students in morning schooling, to then have the opportunity to be picked up from Kindergarten at Campbelltown by our staff, walked the 6-minute walk to the preschool at Sherwood Heights, supervised for the eating of their lunches brought from home, and then offered afternoon French Immersion programming, combined with 4-year-old preschool registrants. Afternoon classes will never have any repeated programming during the week. At the end of the preschool day, students can either be picked up from Sherwood Heights at 2:45pm, walked to Campbelltown School to take a bus home, or walked back to Campbelltown School to be signed into our out of school care program. Families of Kindergarten students who secure spots in these afternoon preschool classes can therefore have access to full-time care: before their Kindergarten class and also after school following their preschool afternoons.

** Please note that Kindercare families are still required to commit to all parent involvement expectations of preschool families, as outlined in Parent Info AND, in order to attend five afternoons per week, Kindercare students are registering in TWO preschool classes and are therefore required to commit to double expectations. A special parent orientation meeting for Kindercare families is held in June and will outline options to opt out of snack and cleaning days via a monetary alternate.

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 2018 and beyond can be submitted by mail or in person at the school.

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
* care for November break may occasionally need to be offered from Colchester Hall


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. **
