Child Care

At the Greater Essex County District School Board, we are happy to offer a range of services, programs and child care partnerships within our elementary schools. There are a variety of program options available, allowing you to choose the program that works best for your family. 

Schools with full day child care

Extended Day Program

The GECDSB has partnered with a number of licensed third party child care partners to offer seamless Extended Day Programs in our schools. These programs are for students from JK to age 12, who require care before the school day starts and after the school day ends.  As child care needs arise, we collaborate with our Child Care partners to conduct surveys in school communities to assess interest in programs. Programs will typically run if there are 20 or more children interested in attending on a regular basis.
