In 2008, to address government commitments to improve child and youth health issues, the Ministry of Tourism, Culture & Sport (formerly MHP), developed a "Child and Youth Health and Wellness After-School Strategy." This strategy is focused on supporting comprehensive after-school programming in specific priority neighbourhoods where school-age residents can benefit from new or enhanced program focused on physical activity, healthy eating and nutrition, wellness and personal health education.
To help ensure consistency and sufficient time for members to be exposed to key topics, program time is dedicated to each topic over the period of a month. Over the course of a month, the program will offer:
This is NOT a drop-in program
Children aged 5 -12 (Grades 1 - 6) can register
Priority is given to families who are working and/or enrolled in school
Packages can be obtained at the school, the Club or by clicking here.
Hours of Operation -
Monday through Friday from 3:15pm - 5:30pm
Fees: There is a slight fee of a $1.00 per day per child for the Major Ballachey After School Program.
