COMING SOON: PD Day Childcare
The Medicine Hat Catholic Board of Education is thrilled to offer a new program to convenience our MHCBE families. PD Day and School Break Childcare will now be offered for all children Kindergarten to Grade 6 during the 2022-2023 school year.
Pre-Register on Wednesday, March 9
In order to sufficiently staff and prepare for the launch of the PD Day Childcare Program, we are requiring families to pre-register their children if they are interested in attending one or more days in the 2022-2023 school year.
In the pre-registration form parents will be given the options to tentatively select preferred dates of attendance, choose an ideal location, and be added to our registration list.
Following the submission of this form, a division staff member will contact each family directly. This staff member will provide parents with a detailed registration form for their child(ren) as well as share details regarding the payment process.
The cost is $50.00 per day per child. This cost covers adequate staffing and activities for the program.
