Highcastle Public School

Potential Extended Day Program

This year, our school explored the possibility of developing an Extended Day Program (a TDSB before and after-school program-BASP) for students in Kindergarten to Grade 6. Unfortunately, based on the number of applications received, there is insufficient interest in a new program for September 2022.

If your child is currently enrolled in a child care or before-and after-school program, please contact the program provider directly for information about their services for next school year.

If you are interested in more information about child care services available in our community, please visit the City of Toronto’s website at www.toronto.ca/community-people/children-parenting or call 416-338-8888.

If you have any questions about this communication, please contact our school office.
