Although Christmas Break 2024 is very far away, we wanted to inform you of our new closure schedule during that time so that you can make your vacation plans accordingly.

For this year, our Board of Directors have decided to close our Early Learning and Childcare program (ELCC) and will not be offering a Winter Break School Holiday Program this year, for the two weeks that schools are closed. All programs will be closed entirely from December 23, 2024 – January 3, 2025, inclusive. We will reopen our ELCC (day care) and Before and After School programs on January 6, 2025. Please note, fees for our ELCC and B&A families will not be discounted for this closure.

Other additional closures anticipated this year are two planned child care educator professional development days that are sponsored by the City of Hamilton. Schools are open on these days, and will take place on May 10, 2024, and November 29, 2024. Both our ELCC and B&A Programs will not operate on those days. More details will follow on how this may or may not affect your fees, as we are still waiting on updates from the City. We are excited once again for our educators to be able to participate in added professional development that will continue to enhance our programs.

The days we are closed (for all our programs) for 2024 are the following:

  • Good Friday: March 29, 2024
  • Easter Monday: April 1, 2024
  • Professional Development Day: May 10, 2024
  • Victoria Day: May 20, 2024
  • Canada Day: July 1, 2024
