City’s September 2021-2022 Before and After School programs now online

May 31, 2021
Announcements and Events

The City’s September 2021-2022 Before and After School programs at various locations are now available to browse online. Registration will take place on Wednesday, June 9 at 9pm. Programs are offered in English and French.

The start of Before and After School programs are dependent upon COVID-19 restrictions being relaxed sufficiently to allow in-person learning this September. It is important, however, to proceed with registration for Before and After School Care programs to allow enough lead time to help residents, especially parents and guardians, to plan for the upcoming 2021-2022 academic year.

Prior to the program beginning, parents will receive a Before and After School Parent Handbook with additional information on expectations and protocols.

The COVID-19 modified activities will include creative physical-distancing games, sports, and arts and crafts. Quiet homework time will also be provided.

Registration is easy. Explore program offerings on to select your program and follow these simple steps:

  1. Go to and browse Before and After School programs or visit JoinOttawa.
  2. Click the relevant barcode – it will take you to the course page, with details about the number of spaces available, fees and dates.
  3. Add the class to your cart and then proceed through the checkout. We’ll email you your receipt.

Looking ahead, the City will follow provincial guidelines and advice from Ottawa Public Health, to ensure that necessary COVID-19 prevention measures and protocols will be in place to safeguard children and staff, including:

  • Mask requirements
  • Additional COVID-specific training for all staff
  • Health screening of children and staff
  • Physical distancing
  • Frequent cleaning and disinfecting
  • Procedures should a student begin to show COVID-19 symptoms

The City of Ottawa is an accredited HIGH FIVE® organization that focuses on providing young people opportunities to play, participate, master skills, and make friends.
