Extended Day Program (EDP)

These programs operate with a recreational/educational focus. The daily program plan is developed by the staff and children and reflects the developmental needs and interests of the children in the group. Activities may include group games/sports, arts and crafts and drama. Activities and schedules are developed by staff and participants at the beginning of the year and changed as necessary. A light nutritious snack is provided both in the morning and the afternoon.

On all regular school days, the morning program operates from 7:00 am until regular school-yard supervision begins. The afternoon program operates from school dismissal time until 6:00 pm. Parents may register their children in either the morning, afternoon or both programs for 2-5 days per week. Programs will run from 7:00 am to 6:00 pm on all PD Days throughout the school year, for one week at Christmas, and the designated week of March Break if sufficient enrollment is present. Please note that spaces are limited and fees for full days will be charged separately. Extended Day Programs are run in conjunction with the Full Day Kindergarten program. The Full Day Kindergarten program is currently being offered in all of our schools.

For general information about these programs, please call Early Learning Services at 613-224-4455, Ext 2382.

Please note there is a two week waiting period between the time you complete the online registration and the date your child may begin in the program. The system will indicate your child’s start date. 


The daily fee for the morning program is $9.75. The daily fee for the afternoon program is $12.75. Families will also have the option to register for full days (one week at Christmas, PD days, March Break). This process will take place in September and the daily rate will be $35.00. Some City of Ottawa subsidies will be available in Extended Day Programs only.
