PA Days | YDP

For Kids grade 3 to 6 at our Waterloo Region District School Board (WRDSB) Locations

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

The link to the PA Day registration form will be available approximately one month prior to the PA Day, as well as an opportunity in September to opt in or out for the 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.

*Due to COVID-19, PA Day hours may be shortened to 8:00 am to 5:00 pm.

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