PD Days | YDP

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

Care Request: Opt-In/Out
Families currently in the YDP before and/or after school program are asked to confirm their plans for PD Days. Children regularily scheduled to attend are required to opt-out in writing if not attending the PD 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 PD Day, as well as an opportunity in September to opt-in/out for then entire school year.

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 7:00 am - 6:00 pm and you choose the time of drop off and pick up, noting there may be a cost difference.

Nutritious snacks are provided. Children are required to bring a bagged lunch.
