Out of School Care

 

The Victoria West Community Association offers a Licensed Out of School Care Program for those enrolled at Vic West Elementary.  Our program aims at a balanced combination of structured and unstructured program time. Activities are developmentally appropriate to support your child’s emotional, physical, social and cognitive needs. It is our philosophy that children learn best when the information provided to them is easily relatable to their lives, so most of the programming revolves around topics that they can find within their community.   The VWCA strives to provide a safe, welcoming environment for children to learn about their world as well as how to navigate in it. Emphasis on cooperation, using words to solve conflicts and build self confidence is a large part of the program. We strive to allow children to make their own choices and explore in an environment which is physically safe, cognitively challenging and emotionally nurturing .  

 

Important Information Registration commences in March for Fall intake. Children must be between the ages of 5 & 12 years old and enrolled at Vic West Elementary School. Prioirty is given first to internal families, then external families wanting both before and after school care, and then all other families.
