Current Students and Parents
The life of a Giles School student is rich and varied. The school offers several programmes and in-school activities to educate and enlighten. From class trips to Science Fairs, to Pizza day, to a myriad of after school programmes taught by accredited instructors, The Giles School understands that students need stimulation beyond academics.
The Giles School aims to offer services that make your day as easy as possible.
Life is busy. You want the best for your children but can’t always be there to do everything for them. The Giles School understands the demands of today’s busy parents and offers student services to complement your lifestyle. After school childcare is included as part of the tuition, nutritious hot lunches are delivered to the school and bussing is available for those with a complex commute.
Providing childcare from 7:30 am – 8:30 am and 3:45 pm – 5 pm every school day, The Giles School makes it easy for parents to orchestrate work schedules with children’s drop off and pick up. 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 until 5 pm and is included in the price of tuition.
In addition to offering childcare on Professional Development days, The Giles School offers a November Break Camp and a March Break Camp (cost not included in tuition) for one of the two weeks of the break. By continuing to provide students with a safe, nurturing and stimulating environment, The Giles School makes school closures less disruptive for both parents and children.
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.
Lunch and Snacks
Students eat lunch in their classrooms under the supervision of their teachers. Teachers have access to a fridge and microwave. Parents are required to help keep our environment nut and peanut free. Children must be sent to school with two snacks: one for morning snack time, one for afternoon snack time. Instead of packing a lunch for your child, you may take advantage of our lunch programme.
Pick Up/Drop Off and Parking
The Giles School has a pick up and drop off system for parents as well as guidelines for its limited parking.
