Kindergarten Aftercare January – June 2017

If any families are interested, we would like to be able to accommodate you by possibly expanding our Aftercare to a second class. If you are interested, please discuss your child’s readiness with their class teacher and then contact our Admissions office as soon as possible. When we get a sufficient number, we’ll do our best to start another class. We feel very lucky (and proud) that, as a BC Independent School, we are able to offer parents the option of a half or full day of Kindergarten. Often part way through the school year, parents whose children have been attending half days, especially those moving to Grade 1 next year, begin to consider if their child and family circumstances are ready to try our Aftercare Program. The program is designed to provide children with a safe and nurturing afternoon in harmony with their morning activities, in their familiar Waldorf environment. As part of a health-giving rhythm of the day, a cooked organic lunch is provided and there is quiet rest time after lunch. Parents may choose 2 days (Th,F), 3 days (M-W) or 5 days, 12:15-3:00pm. Space permitting, we will also consider drop-ins, with at least 1 day notice.

Please contact Karen in Admissions if you have any questions.
