PA Days

For Kids JK to age 12 at our Waterloo Region District School Board (WRDSB) Locations

PA DAY Care Requests
All families currently in a before and/or after school program are asked to confirm their plans for PA Days.

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.

Hours of operation for PA Days are typically 7:00 am to 6:00 pm. RisingOaks reserves the right to cancel PA Day care or to reduce program hours (e.g., 8:30 am to 5:30 pm) should it be necessary due to low enrolment and/or staff requirements.

  • Due to a province-wide child care staffing crisis, PA Days at RisingOaks Early Learning | Oak Creek will operate from 8:30 am - 5:30 pm.

A Bag Lunch Policy is in effect for PA Days. Please send a morning snack and lunch, along with a water bottle. Our in-house cook, Nick, will provide a nutritious afternoon snack on PA Days.
