Before/After School Programme
The Giles School understands the pressure parents face trying to balance work schedules with school drop off and pick up. That is why we offer before and after school care in addition to an activities-based After School Programme.
Before and After School Childcare Programme
The Giles School provides childcare from 7:30 am – 8:30 am and 3:45 pm – 5 pm every school day. Since childcare is included in the price of tuition, parents are spared the expense of arranging supervision directly before and after school. Extended childcare is available from 5 pm – 6 pm for the cost of $5 a day. As the school normally closes after 6 pm, the cost for childcare increases to $50 for the first half-hour after 6 pm, $75 for the second half-hour and every subsequent half-hour will cost $100 per hour. These after 6 pm charges will be applied per child. Childcare is also available on Professional Development (PD) days from 8 am until 5 pm for students who are registered and is included in the price of tuition.
Childcare For Younger Students
The Pre-K to SK students stay in the classroom area of the school until 6 pm to keep them separate from the main body of older students being picked up after school. Pre-K to SK students have dedicated ECE graduates supervising their childcare and are kept in their own area away from the older, more active students until 5:30 pm when they are joined by the few remaining older students for the last half hour of the day.
