Professional Activity Days for School Age Children

Children from Grades 1 to 6 who participate in one or more of PLASP’s full-time programs can also register for our Professional Activity (P.A.) Day Program. 

When a P.A. Day Program is not operating at your home school site, PLASP families are eligible to request a P.A. Day Program outside of their home school location. The P.A. Day Program request must be operating under the same school board as the child(ren)’s home school. 

Please note: P.A. Day Program registration will only be confirmed pending space availability.

During the 2022/2023 school year, school age children will participate in activities that feature outdoor play and nature-based activities, COVID-safe activities and activities themed around science, art, construction, design and discovery on school property on P.A. Days. 

The P.A. Day Program begins at 7:30 a.m., with children arriving no later than 8:30 a.m., and operates until 6:00 p.m. Children are picked-up and dropped off at their school.

The P.A. Day Program fee includes supervision, breakfast, lunch and snacks.

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 This fee will be withdrawn on the scheduled pre-authorized payment date during which the P.A. Day occurs.

Fees for the P.A. Day Program can be found on our Fees page.

Inclement weather, school closures

  • If schools are closed, PLASP will not operate the P.A. Day Program.
  • If schools are open, PLASP will operate the P.A. Day Program on-site. Children will be able to attend the P.A. Day Program from 7:30 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. at the school.

How to register

In most cases, you need to register your child for the P.A. Day Program while enrolling your child in a full time 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 can be done online when you enroll your child in a Before or After School program with PLASP. Please note that your child must be registered in a full-time program in order to register for the P.A. Day Program. These full day programs operate more seamlessly with full-time children that are accustomed to our staff and the components of the PLASP program. Attending a Before and After School Program provides the child and staff the opportunity to get to know each other and this helps to ensure a smooth and enjoyable day for both the children and staff attending 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, as long as your child is registered for a full-time Before and After School program. When registering your child online midway through 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.
