Before and After School Programs

Before- and After-School Programs (Extended Day Program, Authorized Recreation and Licensed Child Care): In-Person Learning During COVID

Before- and after-school programs (BASP) provide important care for families and their children outside of instructional hours and days. The TDSB is committed to working closely with these programs so that they may continue to serve children and families in our schools.

To support the safe reopening and ongoing operations of BASPs during the COVID-19 Pandemic, programs operated by licensed child cares are required to adhere to the requirement set out in the Ministry of Education Operational Guidance During COVID-19 Outbreak: Child Care Re-Opening  and the Toronto Public Health COVID-19 Guidance for Child Care Settings . Updates have also been made to the  Ministry of Education Before and After School Kindergarten to Grade 6 Policies and Guidelines  to provide COVID-19-related operational guidance.  To give families a sense of what to expect in licensed child care, the City has developed this short video. 

Policies and procedures will vary between operators and the decision to operate, determine operating capacities, and program fees will be made by organizations and individual program operators. Parents/guardians should speak directly with their child’s BASP provider if they have any questions about the policies or operations of these programs.  

For more information about BASPs in the TDSB, including TDSB’s directly operated Extended Day Program, please visit our Before- and After-School Programs - 4 to 12 Years website .
