Out of School Care at RIDEAU PARK

Who we are

Discovery Place Rideau Park is a not-for-profit organization that provides comprehensive, compassionate, and engaging child care for children enrolled at Rideau Park School in Kindergarten to Grade 6.

Our dynamic team brings together staff from a variety of backgrounds including teachers, child care workers, and university students.

As lease-holders in the school we believe that it is imperative for us to be active members in the communities where we operate. Our team strives to build positive relationships with administrators and teachers as well as with the children, their families and the surrounding community.

Hours of operation

Discovery Out of School Care Rideau Park is open from 7:00am – 6:00pm Monday-Friday. We are open for care on all PD days, non-instructional days, Winter Break and Spring Break. We close from December 25th - January 1st annually for a winter break and on all statutory holidays. We also operate year-round which means our doors are open for summer holidays in July and August.

Our program

Our program is planned around a weekly or monthly interest. These ideas are chosen based upon children’s interests and the children are encouraged to be a part of the interest based planning process.

Discovery Out of School Care looks for opportunities to embrace and celebrate different cultures, ethnicities, and celebrations and collaborate with our surrounding community.  Families are encouraged to share traditions and occasions that are important to their family with the OSC. This is accomplished when parents share regional delicacies, traditional games and stories, or share their traditions with us.

Parents and caregivers are welcome anytime. Discovery Out of School Care fully embraces an open door policy and the input of parents and caregivers is essential to our ongoing success.
