Absences

Email notification is preferred at info@gnag.ca or call 613-233-8713. Please inform us if your child is going to be absent. We cannot leave the school until your child has been safely located; this delays the entire group from returning to the community centre.

Our BC mandate is to deliver a safe environment for your children to enjoy fun games and activities along with healthy food to help them start their school day of right: energized and confident in themselves. This service works with the three local schools, First avenue, Mutchmor and Corpus Christi. BC runs from 7:30 – school time.

Drop off for Breakfast club starts at 7:30 am and finishes at 8:40 am for First avenue students and 8:50 am for Mutchmor and Corpus. There is no need to notify us about breakfast club absences.  If your child is old enough to walk themselves to school please let GNAG know by email, info@gnag.ca.

Please note if you wish for your child to eat breakfast and they must arrive by 8:30am.

This new program is licensed thought the Ministry of Education. The program and curriculum at GNAG’s Kinder Quest-4-Fun Afterschool Care Program for Jk – SK (Kinder Q4) are guided by “How Does Learning Happen? Ontario’s Pedagogy for the Early Years” (2014)(HDLH). This pedagogy has been implemented through the Ministry of Education as a professional learning resource for child care workers and provides a fundamental framework, grounded in leading-edge research, for how we approach education. We provide an enriching and educational program that promotes inclusivity and cooperation in a fun and safe environment, while focusing on the types of environments, experiences, and interactions, which bring out the best in children, their families, and the educators.
