Calendar, March Break, and PA Days

“Year at a Glance” Program Calendar

“Year at a Glance” 2017/2018

P.A. DAYS REGISTRATION

Our P.A. Day I’m Home Program (for ages 10-12) runs from 7:30 am to 6:00 pm at various Family Centre Locations throughout the city.

The day will be filled with fun and interactive activities that will prepare children to be safe, responsible, and confident enough to care for themselves without the supervision of an adult, for short periods of time. It will also give parents the peace of mind that they have taken the necessary steps to ensure their child is ready for this new responsibility.

Please Note: Registration for 2018 March Break and Summer Programs is not yet open.
