- Storrington School Age Care Program: The before and after school program is now up and running at Storrington Public School! Ten families have enrolled their 17 children to be supervised by qualified staff and to participate in programming on days when their parents are at work. Mornings start at 6:30 a.m. and after-school runs until 6 p.m. This service will continue to be developed to offer expanded care for working parents. New applications will continue to be received.


Early Childhood Educator Hazel Lewis joins our staff as the After School Care Coordinator of this program. She brings with her 25 years experience working with children. She and Lesley Dixon, taking the lead on Before School Care, will provide the programming to assist parents in ensuring that their child meets the developmental milestones required to succeed in school. To register your child contact Jillian Manning, Family Services Coordinator or Lesley Dixon, Home Visitor at the Rural VISIONS Centre.
