Child Care


School District 47 has licensed before and after school child care programs on site at Henderson, Westview, Edgehill, James Thomson and Kelly Creek. We are developing a program for Texada and hope to have it up and running early in the 2023/24 school year. 

SD47 also runs a licensed preschool program, JustB4. Information on the preschool can be found on our Early Learning pages.  

About Before and After School Care

Before and After School child care programs provide care for students in kindergarten through grade five. The students stay in the same welcoming, familiar environment while participating in fun and interactive educational and recreational opportunities. With minimum transitions for the students, they will continue to excel in all aspects of their development even outside school hours.

*Fees will be increasing for the 2023-2024 school year

Fees are generated at the beginning of the month and due by the end of the month. Fees can be paid online through the same esiKidz system that families register with.

All Before & After School Care programs, including Seamless Day Kindergarten are licensed programs and therefore eligible for government subsidies, such as the Affordable Childcare Benefit. Families can choose to do an online registration or a paper application depending on their comfort level. Online registrations are emailed directly to the School District by the Ministry of Education and Child Care. Paper ones require the ability to pick them up from the School Board Office or at a school.

School District 47 is committed to keeping child care affordable for families. If you are ineligible to receive government funding, please email to discuss other options.

Registration for all of our child care programs is done through esikidz which is a multi-functional child care software designed specifically for child care centres within Canada. EsiKidz follows federal and provincial regulations on storing data.
