Is to provide, together, with the family, a quality, school age child care program, in a safe and fun environment, where the children can play and learn life skills in an atmosphere of trust and support.
GASC is a Not for Profit Organization!
We are governed by a Board of Directors rather than having a single owner. All money that comes into our centre is used for the children's experiences as well as the overall running of the business. All positions of the Board are filled by Volunteers. As a parent with a child enrolled at the centre you have the opportunity to help make decisions about policies and programs. You are also a member of the Society, and each family has a vote at the Annual General Meeting (AGM).
We often run annual fundraisers such as our Spring Sleepover. We also rely on parent volunteers for our Casino fundraiser which we apply for every two years.
Currently Our fees are $600/ month during school months and $900/ month during summer month (July & August). However fees are subject to change.
GASC provides two daily snacks, a morning snack between 7:30am and 8:25am and an afternoon snack between 3:30pm and 4:00pm. Children do need to bring a lunch. As we are part of the school community we are a NUT FREE centre.
We attempt to meet the nutritional needs of the children by providing interesting and nutritious snacks, which are planned according to the Canada Food Guide.
Milk and basic condiments such as ketchup and soy sauce are offered at all meal times. In each room there is a filtered water cooler for children to have easy access to cold water as they need.
7:30 AM - 5:45 PM MON to FRI
