Kindergarten children who participate in one or more of PLASP's full-time programs can also register for our Professional Activitiy (P.A.) Program.
P.A. Day activities for children in this program operate out of pre-selected school locations within the same neighborhoods. Your child's P.A. Day Program may not be held at the school in which your child currently attends. In many cases, staffing, program components and classroom space will either be the same or very similar to what your child is accustomed to.
Activities for the day may include arts and crafts, outdoor time (weather permitting), and enrichment activities scheduled specifically for P.A. Days such as music and movement, zumba or yoga. Breakfast, lunch and snacks are provided.
The ratio is 1:13 when P.A. Days take place in the school.
The ratio is 1:8 when children travel by school bus on P.A. Day trips.
The P.A. Day Program begins at 7:30 a.m., (7:15 a.m. at selected locations) with children arriving no later than 8:30 a.m., and operates until 6 p.m. (6:15 p.m. at selected locations). Children are picked-up and dropped off at their school.
P.A. Day Trips
There are a total of seven (7) P.A. Days for the school year. Kindergarten children in the program will stay on school property for P.A. Days, and go on one half-day offsite trip in the spring. These trips are subject to change. For details on trip locations, please contact the Parent Services Hotline at 647-484-4372 (long distance: 1-888-739-4102).
A daily P.A. Day fee will be charged on the scheduled pre-authorized payment date when the P.A. Day occurs. P.A. Day fees are charged per P.A. Day and will be added to the bi-weekly payments. This fee will be withdrawn on the scheduled pre-authorized payment date during which the P.A. Day occurs.
If schools are closed or P.A. Day programs/trips are cancelled for any reason beyond PLASP’s control, PLASP will provide a 50% refund for up to two days per school year. All refunds will be processed as an adjustment to the next scheduled payment.
How to Register
In most cases, you need to register your child for the P.A. Day Program while enrolling your child in a Before or After School Program. Registering this way secures your child a spot in all the P.A. Day Programs scheduled for the school year. The P.A. Day Program registration is included on the registration form used to enroll your child in a Before or After School program with PLASP. Please note that your child must be registered in a program in order to register for the P.A. Day Program.
You may register your child for the P.A. Day Program midway through the year should your circumstances change or you reconsider. When registering your child online midway through the school year, you will need to print a copy of your confirmation, sign it and bring it to the PLASP Program Director at your child's school.
