Our Before and After School Program

(905) 547- 4791


St. Peter’s Day Care has been providing licensed care since 1976. Our after school program at Adelaide Hoodless has been ongoing since 2014.

Mission Statement

St. Peter’s Day Care strives to provide a safe and nurturing learning environment that builds positive self-esteem for the child. Through play experience and teacher guidance, children will build upon their curiosity, initiative, and independence. These can be achieved by working with others in a positive and cooperative peer setting.

We follow the document “How Does Learning Happen”, Ontario’s Pedagogy for the Early Years, and the Ministry of Education’s Extended Day Program. Our staff use reflection exercises from these documents to review their observations of the children while engaging children in meaningful activities. Staff use these observations and reflections to better help children grow and develop. Through our program, we aim for the child to have opportunities for total development and we challenge the child to grow in all areas. Our program will stimulate curiosity and independence, cooperation with peers, motor development, and a sense of self-worth. We are proud participants of Raising the Bar, and have been since 2002.

Bringing Our Curriculum to Life


St. Peter’s Before and After School Program operates in two classrooms at Adelaide Hoodless. Children are separated between the classrooms based on their age, so that they have peers close to their own age to play with. Both classrooms have books for reading, room for playing, and several tables for various activities. Each classroom is staffed with a Registered Early Childhood Education teacher and an assistant teacher.

Nutrition and Rest

Children are given a nutritious snack before and after school.


Children in St. Peter’s Before and After School Program have a variety of toys to play with and activities to be involved in. Children can use wooden blocks and Lego to build whatever their imagination can create. They can also play games such as “Go Fish”, “Checkers”, and “Monopoly”. At the craft table, children can do creative writing, painting, colouring, and crafts, some of which are themed, such as Halloween crafts. Children also spend time in the gym in the Before School Program.

Fire Drills

St. Peter’s Day Care conducts a fire drill each month to ensure that children are familiar and comfortable with the safest ways to evacuate the building.

Arrivals and Departures

When a child arrives at day care, parents are responsible for taking their child’s coat and other outerwear off and making sure it is hung up in the child’s locker. Parents are also responsible for taking their child to the child’s designated area. When leaving, St. Peter’s cannot let the child leave with anyone other than their parents or caregiver, unless otherwise authorized by the child’s parents.

Absences and Holidays

Please inform St. Peter’s Day Care if your child will be absent with an illness or if your child will be on vacation.

Illness and Medication

We ask that you keep your child at home if they are displaying signs of illness. Your child must be sympton free for 24 hours before they can return to the day care. We can administer medication that has been prescribed by a doctor.
