Nurture & Play
Deep Cove Out of School Care is dedicated to creating a safe and nurturing environment for school-age children, before and after school. We strive to support each family and foster each child’s development through outdoor and indoor play-based programs.
Deep Cove Out of School Care is based in North Vancouver and services Cove Cliff Elementary. Our licensed before and after school programs provide childcare for children 5 to 12 years old and follow Cove Cliff’s school calendar. We offer full-day childcare for school district Pro D days. For dates and fees please refer to fee schedule.
As always, we are putting safety first to protect our families and staff. We follow the guidelines and best practices from the Minister of Health and the BCCDC. We have added extra cleaning and sanitizing protocols to ensure that the children, staff, and community are protected. Some of our health and safety practices include, but are not limited to:
- General cleaning and disinfecting of the premises at least once a day
- Frequently-touched surfaces are cleaned and disinfected at least twice a day
- Limit items that are not easily cleaned
Due to the unprecedented times we are living, we want to assure our families that we always follow the Provincial Health Officer and Vancouver Coastal Health guidance and will act according to their recommendations. We will follow their directions about any possible closures during the 2020-2021 school year.
Deep Cove Out of School Care is located next to Seycove Secondary School in one of the complex’s portables. We are walking distance to Cove Cliff Elementary through the vast fields that separate both schools. Our fabulous location provides children with the freedom to walk and play on the way to and from school, as there are no busy streets in close proximity. The walk takes approximately 8 minutes.
Our facility is shared with Deep Cove Parent Participation Preschool. In our spacious classroom, children will have access to some preschool materials as well as activities geared towards children between ages 5 and 12 years old. Our indoor area and closed playground space encourages active play and provides an ideal and safe environment so children can have a well-rounded experience.
The spacious classroom was recently updated to encourage active play and access to playgrounds and green space are key part of our philosophy.
We strive to enhance the child's development and, most importantly, provide a nurturing, safe, and secure environment.
Establishing clear and intentional communication between our staff and parents is an essential component of our philosophy, as we believe it to be crucial for achieving not just effective parent-provider relationships, but also a nurturing environment for the child.
As Deep Cove area residents, we are passionate about the community spirit and love living in this gorgeous corner of North Vancouver. Supporting each other as residents and local businesses, as well as engaging in local matters, have allowed our community to continue flourishing.
Out of School Care is very limited in our community and we wanted to offer that support to local families and neighbours. Due to our extensive experience in early childhood education and our work with children in our community, it was a logical next step for us to create Deep Cove Out Of School Care.
