If you wish to withdraw your child from the ARC program:
Credits and refunds will be prorated based on the date withdrawal is requested. A $13 administration fee will be deducted from any credit or refund amount per person, per program for all withdrawals. The effective date of the withdrawal is the date the withdrawal notice is received by the City, regardless of the date the participant stopped attending the class.
Any request for a refund must be submitted in writing and dated. Call 416-396-7378, option 1 for assistance.
ARC provides a daily nutritious snack for all program participants. Each day ARC participants get to pick two healthy snacks, learn about nutrition and making healthy food choices. If your child has specific dietary needs, please inform our ARC staff so we can ensure that a snack can be provided for everyone. Note there will be no snack the first week of program. Please feel free to provide your child with a peanut and nut-free snack that week.
If there is inclement or severe weather, call our General Inquiry line at 416-338-2512, 311 or visit Recreation Centre Closures and Service Alerts to ensure that the ARC program is operating.
Staff-to-participant ratios are always maintained to ensure the safe supervision of your child.
|Six to 12 years (Child)||1:10, on an exception basis max 1:15*|
|13 to 24 years (Youth)||1:15|
*After School staff can have a maximum ratio of 1:15, with Supervisor approval, in specific circumstances (i.e. staff emergency or illness).
Where possible at certain locations, ARC staff provide a group walking escort to children who are within walking distance from their local school to the after-school location.
We welcome and include children and youth with disabilities to participate in the After-School Recreation Care program at a level of participation suitable to their ability and facility access. We require participants to be able to participate independently or provide their own caregiver if needed.
