Childcare Programs At Our Schools

There are a number of schools throughout our board that work with community partners to offer childcare programs on site. Some of the schools participate in the province of Ontario's Best Start Program, some are offering programs as part of the province's Full Day Kindergarten program and others have independently operated childcare facilities on-site.
