The South-West location is the birthplace of La Société Pommes de Reinette Daycare. It offers two accredited programs. The first is the daycare program, which is opened throughout the year from 7 am to 6 pm and is aimed at children aged 12 months to 5 years who do not yet attend school. A breakfast and two snacks are served daily. The second is the out-of-school care program: it is open in the morning between 7 am and 8:30 am and in the afternoon between 3:20 pm and 6 pm. It is aimed at students from Kindergarten to Grade 6. A breakfast and a snack are served daily. For students in grades 1 through 6, the out-of-school care program is open 10 months a year.
During the summer season, the South-West location sets up a summer camp for those children attending kindergarten in September or those who attended kindergarten in the last school year. This is a full-time, seasonal child care service. The camp is open from 7 am to 6 pm. A breakfast and two snacks are served daily.
Because regular exercise is essential to health, children in the daycare program benefit from two daily periods of outdoor play as well as two weekly periods of indoor play in the gross motor room. Throughout the year, these children also have the opportunity to enroll in optional courses that take place at the program such as music and yoga classes. For children in the daycare program who are over 3 years old, they have the opportunity to enrol in optional off-site lessons such as gymnastics and swimming.
For children in the out-of-school care program, they have a daily outdoor play time in the afternoon. Themed days, special activities, crafts, experiments, role-playing games and board games are offered. In addition, these children have the option of enrolling in weekly optional courses that take place at the program such as guitar lessons. During Professional Development days, special activities and outings are planned: painting lessons, bowling, wall climbing etc.
