Before and After School Care
Learn about before and after school care for your child.
Register your child in the City of Surrey's Before and After School Care program. Programs are available to children attending kindergarten to grade seven. Each day your child will have the time to create, move, discuss, observe, read and play. Our highly trained staff will ensure that your child is actively engaged in a variety of developmentally appropriate activities each day.
We are committed to keeping children safe at our preschool programs during COVID-19. Review City of Surrey's Before and After School Program Safety Guidelines and FAQs.

Monthly payment options are available on a non-equalized schedule and will be deducted on the first of each month. Scheduled payment information must be provided at the time of registration. Accepted forms of payment include Visa, MasterCard, American Express, or Automatic Debit Withdrawal. The cost is based on the number of program days that your child is registered to attend, (for example, if your child is registered to attend 21 days in September, you will pay the daily rate(s) x 21).
How to Register
Child(ren) must be registered and attending the school for which the program is being offered. Registration at more than one site is not permitted, and may result in the cancellation of your registration.
When registering, families can choose up to five days per week of Before and/or After school care during the school year. Days will be non-transferable and the chosen day(s) will be scheduled and charged for the duration of the program, (for example, if your child is registered for Mondays and Wednesdays, registration will be scheduled for every Monday and Wednesday throughout the school year).
Refunds are not given if your child does not attend the program. The Before and After School Care program cannot accommodate drop in, flexible care or weekly changes.
