Before and After School Child Care Programs

The Windsor-Essex Catholic District School Board recognizes that school based before and after school child care is both required and valued by many families in our Catholic school communities. We have partnered with a number of child care providers to offer quality, licensed child care programs in most of our elementary schools.

Infant, Toddler and Preschool Child Care Programs

In some school communities, on-site child care programs are also available for younger children - infants, toddlers and preschoolers.


These child care programs are offered on a fee for service basis for children in Kindergarten to Grade Six. Fees are determined by the child care providers. Fee subsidies are available for many families. For more information on fee subsidies please call 519-255-5312.

Hours of Operation

Before and After School Programs are most often offered between 7:00am and 6:00pm. In some instances providers will offer to extend hours of operation to respond to individual family needs. Most providers also offer child care programs for students on professional development days and holidays.


Parents who wish to have their child attend a Before and After School Child Care Program at their school are required to provide transportation to and from school each day.
