Hello Maple Grove Families!

We are excited to let you all know that we have some spaces open at Arbutus Kids World Society After School Care!

Here at Kids World we offer a safe, fun, social and inspiring program for children from Kindergarten to grade 7. We pick up from Maple Grove at 3:00 Monday to Friday and we take the children back to Kids World where they enjoy a nutritious and delicious snack and from there move in to activities planned by our amazing staff team. There is always something fun going on at Kids World and the activities range from baking, sports and art to acting, jeopardy and even, on Fridays some video game or movie time!

When holidays are approaching we get the children involved in all sorts of related activities and quite often put on shows for all the parents and caregivers. There are always fun and interesting things happening at Kids World!

The cost is $425.00 per month and we are also open on school closure days for an added $25.00 per day fee. We are open until 6:00 pm Monday to Friday.

Please contact us if you are interested in our program. We are happy to have you come in and see our facility and meet our team. We look forward to hearing from you!
