Before and After School Program


The Shambhala School offers a Before and After School Program for students in Pre-Primary through to Grade 5. Space in the program is limited, so families are encouraged to reserve their spot by registering for the Program using the Before and After School Program Registration Form at their earliest convenience. (Priority is given to Shambhala School students and we are unable to accept students from outside of our school prior to August 2018).

There are three school terms at the Shambhala School. Each term there is usually one Professional Development Day and one Report Writing Day. In addition, there are Parent/Teacher Interview Days. Please check the school calendar for exact dates. There are no regular classes on these days but we do offer child care. Please note that there will be an extra daily charge for this care and you must register in advance. Parents must provide a packed lunch, snacks, water bottle and appropriate outdoor clothing.

The child care program is available on these days from 8:30am to 5:00pm.
