The After School Club is open from September to June and follows the Bowen Island Community School (BICS) calendar. We are currently licensed for up to 42 children per day and we are located at BICS.  We have highly trained staff  who love this age in human development. This team is skilled at creating a fun filled environment for each and every child.  We offer a variety of art and sports activities on a daily basis as well as a generous snack and lots of personal attention for children who have spent long school days learning. The emphasis at the After School Club is on fun!

We also run Pro-Day Camps.  Check out the schedule for 2020-21!

 

Annual Registration for September

To enrol in the After School Club, please complete the Enrolment Package.

Children who turn five years old by December 31 of this year, are eligible for enrolment in the After School Club beginning in September.

Registrations are received on a first come, first serve basis, with the date and time of receipt recorded on each registration form. BCC accepts children in the following priority:

  1. returning ASC children
  2. children graduating from early learning and care programs at BCC
  3. alumni and siblings
  4. all others

Please note that member and returning families who register after Early Enrolment has closed will register on the same footing as new families.

Enrolment forms can be submitted by email, mail or hand delivered as follows:

  3. Dropped off and placed in the lock box outside of 650 Carter Road (when programs are not in session).

Adults may register one other child in addition to their own. Once a day’s spaces are filled, names will be taken on a waitlist. This waitlist is only for spaces that may become available during the coming year.

While the main enrolment period is in the spring, applications are accepted over the course of the year and children may be taken into the program as space becomes available.

Deposits are required and are equal to one half of the anticipated cost of your September fees. For example, if you’re registering for three days per week, your deposit will be equal to six days’ fees. This deposit is non-refundable, but will be applied against your last month’s fees once you give notice.

Payment may be made by cheque made out to BCC/ASC with your child's name in the subject, then delivered to 650 Carter Road and put in the secure box outside of the office OR e-transfer to: accounting@bowenchildresnccentre.ca.  cash will not be accepted.
