TCRCE’s afterschool programs at Meadowfields, Plymouth, Port Maitland, and Drumlin Heights recently transitioned to the Boys and Girls Club of Yarmouth. As many of those families are aware, this change resulted in a cost increase for some families. We have been working with our partners to help find financial assistance.
I am pleased to share that as of Monday, Nov. 29/21, the Boys and Girls Club afterschool program will become part of the provincial Before and After Program. This means your family may now quality for a subsidy. Eligibility is based on your family’s income and finances. Please apply here as soon as possible.
The Nova Scotia Before and After Program is available to families of children ages 4 to 12 who are enrolled in pre-primary or the public education system. The program is delivered by approved child care providers (the Boys and Girls Club of Yarmouth, in this case) and promotes health, wellbeing and a physically active lifestyle by focusing on physical literacy, movement and outdoor play.
If you have questions or need help applying, please contact Nicole LeBlanc email@example.com.
