The Extended Day Care program provides a safe and caring environment for Primary School children whose parents require child care services beyond the traditional school day.
Families may enroll their children on a regular or drop-in basis. Please note that EDC does not operate on days when WIS is officially closed, including vacations and when the School is closed due to inclement weather.
The early arrival enrichment program begins at 7:00 AM and is open to all families.
Preschool, Pre-Kindergarten, and Kindergarten After School
Supervision is offered from 3:00-6:00 PM; during this time, students alternate between indoor games and activities or outdoor free play.
Grades 1 to 5 After School
Extended Day Care will include structured ways for students to work on various skills while staying after school. First, for students in Grades 1-5, the Homework Center (formerly known as study hall) will provide a quiet place for them to complete their homework. Second, enrichment clubs will be offered during EDC as part of the newly created WIS Club Zone.
Students in Grades 1-5 will attend the Homework Center from 4:00-5:00 PM, Monday-Thursday, under the guidance of WIS teachers, who will provide homework and language support. The implementation of the Homework Center will provide a direct link between the school day and after school time.
Following homework time, students will participate in the WIS Club Zone, which includes arts & crafts activities, organized games, sports, and team building activities. In the WIS Club Zone, students will learn good sportsmanship, teamwork, and leadership skills while having fun.
