Welcome to the Active Kids Club Program - Licensed Child Care
The Active Kids Club (AKC) program is a licensed after school program that operates in partnership with School District 42 in local elementary schools. This program is available at Laity View & Yennadon Elementary schools from January to June 2021. Due to low enrollment, the program at Eric Langton, Albion and Hammond elementary schools has been cancelled.
Children in grades K-7 are provided with supervision from trained children’s employees. At AKC we are proud of our safe, fun, active and inclusive activities and experiences. We provide snacks and active play for children after school and encourage and support children with their development in play, fitness, imagination and sense of curiosity in the world around them.
The City of Maple Ridge’s Active Kids Club afterschool program (AKC) will be commencing on January 4, 2021. The program will be following all provincial health pandemic guidelines, Worksafe BC requirements, City of Maple Ridge Exposure Control polices and will align with School District 42 procedures. Registration is currently open and we are accepting applications for Laity View and Yennadon. Please read the information below regarding how to register.

Program Registration Minimums
AKC locations must maintain minimum attendance numbers to sustain the program for the remainder of the school year. This will be reviewed weekly and if a school location is not consistently operating at minimums, child care availability may be reduced or cancelled.
