After School Program

The Canterbury Community Association After-School Program is located in the Alta Vista area of Ottawa. We operate between the hours of 2:30-5:30pm. The children in our program are organized into individual grades. Each group has their own home base with a Team Lead and 1 to 2 counselors. Our program accommodates JK/SK up to Grade 6. Our ratios for counselor to children exceed recommendations. We abide by the Child Care and Early Years Act, 2014. Daily activities are programmed around physical, mental, social, and cognitive health. Each Friday is a Funday Friday, a day where children participate in a special activity planned and organized by the group’s team lead. During the program children are playing organized games, doing crafts, socializing with friends and building long lasting relationships. Some examples of our bigger activities include a full production of “Beauty and the Beast”, DIY Mini Putt course, Marble runs, Video Dance Parties, life sized board games, learning a new language and more. The After School program hosts March Break Camps and PD DAY camps throughout the year. These camps often include an out trip and a full day or week of planned activities. The skills and attributes taught in our program help each child to become more responsible and successful in their own lives.
