South Slope Out Of School Care Centre
South Slope Out of School Care provides an inclusive child care program that strives for healthy and optimal growth and development for all children. South Slope staff recognize all children as unique individuals with a variety of strengths, needs, talents and interests. We believe that children learn through play, curiosity, experimentation and exploration. We provide developmentally appropriate programming and activities that promote inclusion, multiculturalism and learning.
South Slope is a licensed out-of-school care facility that is fully wheelchair accessible. The child-to-staff ratio for children in Kindergarten and Grade 1 is 1 staff for every 10 children. For children in Grades 2 to 7, the ratio is 1 staff for every 15 children.
The Summer Program builds upon community exploration to many local recreational facilities that may include: Science World, The Vancouver Aquarium, Stanley Park, local beaches, local parks and many more. South Slope Out of School Care also plans and implements community fundraisers, thereby incorporating a sense of community ownership in the children while having fun.
Please note: South Slope is currently not accepting any more families on its waitlist.
