Welcome to Metcalfe Public School

Interested in Before and After School Care?
This school may offer an Extended Day program in 2013-2014!

For the program to run, at least 3 students must be registered.

Extended Day programs offer parents of children in the kindergarten program to age twelve, access to before and after school child care on all regular school days.  Programs run fro 7:00 am until school starts, and after school ends until 6:00 pm.  Parents may register their child for the morning program, afternoon program, or both.

The program costs approximately $20/day and will operate on PA days, March Break, and some days over Christmas break for an additional cost.

For more information, please visit or call Eleanor Heap at 613-239-2378.
