Extended Day

Barrie provides quality care outside of the traditional school day. Convenient and reliable before and after school care is available to our enrolled students from age 18 months through Grade 8.

Hours: 7:00 am to 6:00 pm 

Barrie's Extended Day Program offers a warm and nurturing environment, which meets the social, emotional, cognitive, and physical needs of your child. While respecting the individuality of your child's development, the program fosters a sense of community within the group, encourages learning amongst the children, and enhances your child's emerging social skills. Teachers and group leaders are sensitive to the developmental needs of the child and provide appropriate support and programming.

Full-time, part-time, and drop-in usage of the program are available by advance arrangement with the Extended Day Director or the Business Office. Space is limited for the Toddler and Primary Program students, age 18 months through Kindergarten.

Important Notes:

  • All students who are on campus after the end of their dismissal time will automatically be placed into their age-appropriate Extended Day group unless they are participating in an after school activity. Students who are on campus after the end of the regular school day for an activity run by another department or teacher must be under the supervision of the respective department or program leader.
  • If a student needs to use the extended day program for more than two days a week on a regular basis, the student should be enrolled full-time. Otherwise, drop-in charges will apply.
