The City will be starting its Before and After School programs at various locations on Thursday, September 3 to coincide with the reopening of schools. Registration opens online on Monday, August 24 at 9 pm.

The program guide will be online Friday, August 21, providing information on hours and program locations.

Prior to the program beginning, parents will receive a Before and After School Parent Handbook with additional information on expectations and protocols.

The COVID-19 modified activities will include creative physical-distancing games, sports, and arts and crafts. Quiet homework time will also be provided.

Following provincial guidelines and advice from Ottawa Public Health, enhanced COVID-19 prevention measures and protocols will also be in place to safeguard children and staff. These measures include:

  • Additional COVID-specific training for all staff
  • Health screening of children and staff
  • Physical distancing
  • Frequent cleaning and disinfecting

Mask requirements will follow the same provincial protocols implemented in the schools. Students in Grade 4 and up will be required to wear masks indoors. While it is not formally required, the City encourages students from Kindergarten to Grade 3 to wear masks indoors.

Mitigation measures and protocols are also in place should a student begin to show COVID-19 symptoms, which will include direct notification to the parent or guardian and the need for immediate pick-up.

The City of Ottawa is an accredited HIGH FIVE® organization that focuses on providing young people opportunities to play, participate, master skills, and make friends.
