HOMEWORK HELP AND CHILDCARE OPTIONS AT AN AFFORDABLE PRICE

Pick-up and drop-off procedures

To better answer the unique needs of each family, we offer a variety of enrollment options, ranging from daily attendance to an as-needed basis. Full session rates for registered students are calculated with the goals of quality and affordability. A 10% discount is granted to families with at least two children registered at the same time in the childcare or homework help program. Our programs operate Monday-Friday and follow the school’s academic calendar. When school is cancelled due to inclement weather or for any other reason, there will be no Before- and After-school Programs.

Childcare and personalized Homework help options (3:15 to 6:00 p.m.)

After the school day ends, students in Pre-K through grade 5 are welcome to enroll in our after-school program. This program includes snack and childcare for students’ pre-k through kindergarten. Students are divided in three classrooms (pre-k, Jr-k and K), and enjoy free time, play, games and crafts. Students may watch TV, but no longer than 15 minutes per day. Staff may speak English or French to the students.
  
Students in grades 1 through 5 participate in a Personalized Homework Help program. Every day between 3:45 and 4:45pm, students are disseminated in various classrooms according to their grade. There is one Lycée teacher in each classroom, never more than 10 students per classroom, and a ratio of 1 adult for five students maximum is guaranteed. This setting allows teachers to ensure that homework is done, help with reading and spelling test, explain any notion that may need reinforcement, and challenge students wanting to learn more on a subject. To ensure quality, the same teacher remains with the same group of students for the entire session. When homework is done and if there is time left, students get to play fun educational games and activities. A general homework help classroom runs from 4:45 to 6:00pm for students staying later.

The program begins immediately after dismissal. Several enrollment options are available from 3:15 to 6.00 p.m. Students registered for the Evening 1 program must be picked up by 4:45pm. Families who are picking-up their children late consistently will be automatically registered for the Evening 2 option. After 6.00 p.m., families will be charged a late pick-up fee of $1 per minute. Prices below are for the entire session and do not include Ateliers. S1 = Sept-Feb; S2 = Feb-June
