Extended Day Program

The Early Learning Program is a Ministry of Education initiative that brought Full-Day Kindergarten to Ontario. There are two components to the program — the Core Program which represents the full-day classroom component and the Extended Day Program which represents the before and after school program.

In the Core Program certified teachers and registered early childhood educators work together to deliver the Full-Day Kindergarten Program. Students receive instruction and play-based learning with both the teacher and the early childhood educator. The students develop their capacity in language and mathematics, and build a strong foundation for future learning. In addition they engage in healthy physical activities and enjoy arts education. Full-Day Kindergarten offers students the opportunity to develop skills to become more comfortable in social settings and to interact with their peers and the adults who guide them.

All schools with kindergarten classes in the Ottawa-Carleton District School Board offer the Full-Day Early Learning Program for junior and senior kindergarten students. Please visit the OCDSB Extended Day Program for more information.

The Extended Day Program is offered at Lakeview for students in JK to Grade 6. All Extended Day Programs are designed to provide before and after-school programming for children registered within the school and will be led by a Registered Early Childhood Educator. The Extended Day Program is an optional program that is offered for a fee where 3 or more children are enrolled.


Eligibility for school buses is as follows: more than 800 metres (0.8 km) from pick-up/drop-off address to school for Junior and Senior Kindergarten; 1.6 km from pick-up/drop-off address to school for grades 1 to 8. Once your child has registered at Lakeview, you can check bus stop information (location and time) using the Stop Locator. If information does not pop up, your child has not been assigned a seat.
