Hope you had a great summer and enjoyed the weather! We’re excited to be offering a new set of programs this Fall for 2019, including Saturday programs at University Chapel and Pro-D Day Camps (coming soon).
Weekend Saturday Programs
We our offering two 5-week programs on Saturdays starting in September at University Chapel, UBC. You have a choice between a 10am-12pm session or a 1-3pm session in the afternoon. Kids will have hands-on robotics fun and STEM learning and also a break at the hour to go outside and stretch their legs at the park nearby. Parking is free at University Chapel for participants in the program. Find out more on our Weekend Programs page.

You can register for either the March 16-20 Robotics Camp or March 23-27 Camp full or half day.

We want to thank all the parents and kids who’ve been joining our After School Programs for the past few years. We have seen some amazing progress and awesome creativity come out of these programs, and we’re super proud of all our students. We have decided to take a break from offering after school programs this year with the VSB for a variety of reasons and will instead be focused on in-school and weekend programs this year. Thanks for your understanding and support, and all the best to you and your kids this school year!
