Before and After School Care Service

About Le Trait-d’Union

Welcome to the before and after school care program managed by the AFV. Our mission is to create an opportunity for children aged 4 to 12 to interact in French in a fun, stimulating and safe environment.

Le Trait-d’Union program focuses on developing the creative, social, intellectual and physical skills of each child through activities and play. We offer the following activities : recreational activities, sports, arts, collective games, free playtime with games such as LEGO bricks, puzzles, board games, etc. Starting in grade 1, under the supervision of our counsellors, children can attend a homework session of a maximum duration of 30 minutes. During this period, we assist children with their academic assignments.

The objectives of the before and after school care service are the following :

  • To ensure the general well-being of the children and to facilitate their global development with activities that take their interests and needs into account;
  • To offer support to families in offering, among others, an adequate location and, when possible, assistance from an adults for the children’s homework.
  • To ensure the safety and the health of children, while respecting safety and the code of conduct.
  • Schedule

    • Morning 7:00 am to 8:05 am
    • Evening 2:21 pm to 5:30 pm
    • Pro-D days 7:00 am to 4:30 pm

Snowstorms/force majeure

When the Conseil Scolaire Acadien Provincial announces that classes are cancelled because of the weather, the before and after school care service is closed as well.

When the announcement that the school is closed because of a storm is given after the beginning of classes, the Trait-d’Union will remain open and will welcome registered children for a maximum of two hours after the school closes.

Fees

The service is offered from Monday to Friday, from September to June, following the school calendar.  Le Trait-d’Union will be closed on holidays, during spring break (unless announced otherwise) and during the Christmas break.  Several pricing options are offered, based on the schedule that you choose.

Parents are responsible for lunch and additional snacks.
