Together with the City of Kingston and Prince Edward and Lennox & Addington Social Services, the Limestone District School Board is seeking information to identify the potential need for school-based Before and After School programs for the 2017-2018 school year.
Families who require a program for children in Kindergarten to~Grade 6 outside of regular school hours may be interested in a Before and After School program. These are optional programs offered by independent, qualified child-care operators. Fees will be charged for these services.
School-based Before and After School programs are not intended to replace existing child-care arrangements families currently have in place.
To help understand the demand for Before and After School Programs in our school communities, we are asking parents interested in such programs to:
- Check to ensure your school doesn’t already have Before and After School Programs. Please visit our website to access all child-care options currently available in Limestone.
- If you did not find child-care is offered at your school, please complete a short survey to help us understand the demand in your school.Click here if you reside in the City of Kingston
- Click here if you reside in Prince Edward or Lennox & Addington
Completion of these surveys do not indicate a commitment on your part, but provides an indication of potential interest or viability in your school. This is not a registration form or a guarantee that a program will be offered.
While financial details of the Before and After School program are not yet finalized, it is anticipated the fee structure to be based on a minimum of 20 children. In the case where enrolment falls below the minimum requirement, the Before and After School program may not be offered or the model may be adjusted.
The average cost of school-based Before and After School programs for 4-12 year olds in your community is approximately:
- Before Care: $9-10 per day
- After Care: $11-12 per day
- Before and After Care: $19-20 per day
Thank you for taking the time to provide your feedback.
