Child care programs

We offer a number of child care options right at your neighbourhood Ottawa Catholic School. With licensed child care, before and after-school programs, or play-based drop-in programs for little ones, we have programs to support the needs of all families.

Before and after-school Extended Day Program (EDP)

Our Extended Day Program offers your child a fun, safe, welcoming environment focusing on educational and recreational activities before and/or after school. Our daily programming may include arts & crafts, sports, and drama.

You can register your child in our morning, afternoon, or both programs for 2-5 consecutive days a week.

On regular school days, our morning program operates from 7:00 am until regular school-yard supervision begins. Our afternoon program starts following school dismissal until 6:00 pm. We will only operate on PD days and March Break if there is enough interest to warrant running the program, and in that case, our program runs from 7:00 am to 6:00 pm. Spaces are limited and fees for full days will be charged separately.

 

Extended Day Program Fees

  • Morning program $9.75 per day
  • Afternoon program $12.75 per day
  • Full day (PD days and March Break) $35

EarlyON Child and Family Centres

We have six EarlyON Child and Family Centres at the Ottawa Catholic School Board. This drop-in program is for children (0 to 6 years old) and their parents/caregivers. It is completely free of charge! Join us as we learn through play, focusing on literacy, numeracy, school readiness, and learn about community resources.
