Sir James Douglas Out Of School Care

After School Care (ASC)

05This is our biggest and most popular program. Children must be enrolled at Sir James Douglas Elementary School.

We are licensed for 77 children after school, combined in our three OSC rooms. ASC is full-time only, operating Monday – Friday. Hours of operation are 2:50 pm – 6:00 pm. We do not offer part-time or drop-in. Enrollment includes after-school snack and full day care on school Pro D Days.

We are closed all statutory and school holidays including winter breaks. Limited OSC camp dates are available. Please visit our Camps page for more info.

OSC staff pick up kindergarten children directly from their classroom and walk they and the grade ones to the OSC’s Sunshine Kids room.

We operate out of three rooms:

Sunshine Kids: grades K-1 in the Main OSC room, outside the school’s flag pole.

Cool Cats: grades 1-2 located in the school’s Multipurpose/Music Room.

Super Stars: grades 3-5 in the school gymnasium.

Each room is staffed with two qualified OSC leaders.

After-School Club Schedule:

Each day children are invited to explore different activities with friends and have opportunities to play games, use the gym, play outside on the playground or in our back field, construct with blocks and Lego or building materials, creative arts/crafts, and/or engage in dramatic play.

A typical day at SJD OSC:

  • arrive/change into indoor shoes
  • attendance
  • snack
  • clean up
  • outside
  • art/games/activities/play time

After-School Club Policies:

  • It is the OSC’s policy that parents sign their child out of the program each day.
  • All children must “high-five” their leader at pick up time.
  • Late fees will be applied to all pick ups after 6pm.

Please note, the OSC currently has a wait list for the 2016-17 school year. If you are interested in joining our wait list or are in need of care for next year, 2017-18, please come by the centre and fill out a wait list form.
