Before- and After- School in Manor Park
On each school day, some 180 children join 'Before- and After-School in Manor Park', a licensed child care program, for sports and games – and the benefits of a dedicated arts specialist. Growing each year under the leadership of the Program Supervisors and Early Childhood Educators – this program shines! We pride ourselves on serving our families with flexible registration options, low fees, quality programming, and licensing compliance. The Manor Park Community Council (MPCC) offers this before- and after-school licensed child care program under contract to the Ottawa-Carleton District School Board (OCDSB).
'Before- and After-School in Manor Park’ serves children in JK through grade 6. Programming takes place in the Manor Park Public School. Before-school programming hours are 7:15-8:30am, after-school programming hours are 3:00-6:00pm, all on school days of the OCDSB calendar. Parents have the option of registering for mornings, afternoons – or both! Fees are prepaid to the MPCC on a monthly basis.
The Manor Park Community Council acknowledges the support of the City of Ottawa and Minister of Education for 'General Operating Funding' and 'Municipal Health and Safety Funding'.
