LOOKING FOR A QUALITY PROGRAM TO CARE FOR YOUR CHILD?  Look no further!  Boys & Girls Club of Drayton Valley offers quality programming in our licensed Out of School Care program, run by caring and qualified staff.  What will your child do in our program?  We have a wide range of activities, including centres, stories, snack, outdoor play, games, crafts, dramatic play, cooking, and free time!  We have had great feedback from those already registered in the program.  Often, the kids don’t want to leave!

WORRIED ABOUT THE COST?  The cost is $310 per month (with the cost going down $50 for each additional child).  If you need to you can apply for full subsidy from the government (similar to how you would for day care).  Our staff work from 3-6pm with the children each school day.  And full day camps held on weekdays when there is no school (8am-5pm) are included in this cost!  (This excludes statutory holidays, of course.)

ONLY NEED CHILDCARE ON PD DAYS? If you are only interested in the full day camps as mentioned above, have no fear!  You can register your child for a cost of $35 for a single day.  We will start accepting day camp registrations a week prior to the day.  Just give us a call!  Please contact the Boys & Girls Club of Drayton Valley @ 780-514-3400

  Important Reminders for Parents/Guardians

  • Office hours are 8:00-4:00.  Parents please make sure you call the office or email kerrie.lemermeyer@starcatholic.ab.ca if your child will be late or absent.  If you have reached the answering machine please leave a message as staff are unavailable to answer the phone.
  • All messages need to arrive at the office before lunch (12:32).  This way we can make sure that your child gets this message without being disrupted from their class and ensuring they receive the message before the end of the day. Only in cases of emergency will we call your child out of class.  
  • Classroom interruptions break the flow of the lesson being taught and is difficult for Students to re-focus.  We need your help ensuring your child is getting all the support as possible. If you just dropping off an item, or leaving a message for your child, please do so at the front office ONLY.
  • Staff welcomes opportunities to meet and discuss your child’s program, but DO NOT interrupt classes to speak to your child’s teacher.  Please leave a message at the office for the teacher to call and make an appointment.
  • Microwaves will be available for those students in grades six – eight.  We would like to take this time to remind parents/guardians that there will be NO microwaves in the classrooms for grades Kindergarten – 5.
  • St. Anthony School does have a dress code for all our students (including Preschool).  Students are not to dress in a manner that is revealing.  Shoulder straps need to be at least 3 finders wide, shorts and skirts are to be mid-thigh or longer and stomachs and underwear are to be covered.  Students dressed inappropriately will be asked to change.  If they do not have a change of clothing, they will be contacting you to bring them appropriate clothing.
  • Please ensure that you use the crosswalk when you drop off your children.  We want our students to be safe at all times. 
  • There is a Handicapped parking spot on the South side of the crosswalk in the front of the school.  It is marked with blue paint.  Please make sure that you are not parked in this spot, as this spot needs to be available for those whom require it.
  • Please pull into a parking spot (where there is NO yellow paint) when dropping off or picking up students in the back or front parking lots of the school.
Mark your calendars and plan to join us as we Celebrate 50 Years of Catholic Education in Drayton Valley.
