School Age Services

The Town of Carleton Place offers school age services (for children aged 4 years - 13 years) from the Carambeck Community Centre location where we occupy approximately 13,000 sq. ft. of the former school during our hours of operation and we share with primarily the Recreation department where other community activities are offered during our non-program hours.

Because the facility was a former school it has been designed to work for the needs of school age children and as such we have available to us a gymnasium, large outdoor areas and age appropriate classrooms. The municipal pool is also on-site which means we have access to book it throughout the year.

The programs we offer are based on the needs of families throughout the year and the breakdown of service is as follows:
September - June: We offer a Before and After School program and it services children attending any of the schools in Carleton Place. The hours of operation are 6:30 a.m. - 9:00 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. - 6:00 p.m. We offer care at Christmas, March Break and P.A. days (6:30 a.m. - 6:00 p.m.) and there is a requirement for families to book the service they want for their child on a consistent basis. Parents can add or reduce service throughout the year but they need to give 2 weeks written notice of any change.

Currently we have:

  • 2 kindergarten rooms licensed for a total of 52 kindergarten aged children
  • 4 school aged rooms licensed for 75 children aged 6 - 9 years
  • 1 Jr. School Age room (formerly youth program) spaces. Licensed for 20 children 9-13.

July - August: We offer licensed care in the form of a summer camp atmosphere. The program is open the full summer with the exception of statutory holidays. We  offer different hours for the summer. We offer regular summer camp hours from 7:30 am – 4:45 pm for $32 and extended hours from 6:30 am to 6:00 pm for $34.
