(Grade 1 to Grade 4 – before and after-school care)

WEPD’s goal is to provide an environment where children feel like they are coming and going from a second home – moving away from the structure and stresses of school to a space where they can relax, read, create, and explore. In this relaxed structure children can participate in music, dance, arts and crafts, science, computer centre, and recreational activities.
