Child Care

Our students have access to a variety of Child Care opportunities for Before and After School Care, and/or Kindercare Child Care, through a series of community and organizational partnerships. We urge parents to make arrangements early as there are a limited number of spaces for these popular programs.

In partnership with the YMCA we are proud to offer Before/After School Care, KinderCare (care on days opposite of Kindergarten), and Day Care (at St. John Paul II Catholic School/Faculté Jean-Paul II). This user-pay partnership allows for us to provide the best early learning start for your family.
