All closures are already factored into the monthly rates and therefore no fee reductions are given.
Licensed childcare is currently offered at nine different locations. This service provides working families with a safe place and quality program for their children. These programs are fee-for-service with government subsidies available for those who qualify.
For inquiries about our School-age Childcare Service please contact the center located at the school your children are attending. Contact information for the centers can be found on the Our Locations page of this site.

The Burnaby Neighbourhood House also provides free, targeted, after school programs for children in Grades 2-7 in partnership with Elementary schools in Burnaby. Our current partnerships include Maywood Community School, Edmonds Community School, Morley Community School, and Douglas Road Elementary School. Children attend program for two hours after school between one to five days a week depending on the program and receive support with homework, social skills, as well as receive instruction in a variety of recreational activities like sports, cooking, arts, dance, and out-trips. Programs are funded by United Way of the Lower Mainland, the BC Gaming Commission, and the Royal Bank of Canada. Registration is by referral only. If your child attends one of our partner schools please inquire with school support staff about whether your child qualifies.
