PA Days

For Kids JK to 12 years at Waterloo Catholic District School Board (WCDSB) Locations

Care Request: Opt-In/Out
Families currently in a before and/or after school program are asked to confirm their plans for PA Days. Children regularily scheduled to attend are required to opt-out, using the online form, if not attending the PA day before the deadline.

If your child isn't scheduled to attend and you would like care for that day, you may wish to Opt-In.

The Opt-In/Out link will be available one month prior to the PA Day, as well as an opportunity in September to Opt-Out for then entire school year.

NEW: Due to COVID-19, only those registered in RisingOaks' before and after school program or a sibling of a before and after school child are eligible to attend PA Days. Out of an abundance of caution, and to minimize COVID-19 risks, we are unable to accept care requests from those at another school or non-RisingOaks' families.

What does a typical day look like?
We have a balance of indoor and outdoor play, special guests, field trips and cooking experiences. Some program elements may change or be eliminated based on COVID-19 requirements.

Spending as much time as possible outdoors, your child has the opportunity for rich learning experiences and fresh air. This is a time for group games and other activities. Children experience social interaction and creative learning together.

Inside the classroom RisingOaks learners do creative activities focused on their interests.

Our hours are 6:30 am - 6:00 pm and you choose the time of drop off and pick up.
(Hours may vary by centre. Confirm with the centre Supervisor)

Our in-house cook provides nutritious snacks and home cooked lunches.
