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/child after 6 pm.
Free childcare is also available on Professional Development (PD) days from 8 am until 5 pm for students who register in advance..
Childcare For Younger Students – The Pre-K to SK students stay in the PK classroom area of the school until 6 pm, separate from the older students. By 5:30 pm, there are fewer older and younger students, so their supervision is often combined until 6pm. for the final half hour of the day.
AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAMMING – In the first term at Giles, our students took part in French Theatre, Music Club, Math Contest Preparation, Spanish, English Club, Chess and SSAT Prep. In the second term we added: Cartooning, Stamp Club, The Science of Sound and Soundmaking and Lego Storymaker from Brick Labs. Stay tuned for more details about term 3 programs!
