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 Albion, Hammond, Laity View and Yennadon Elementary schools for the 2021 – 2022 school year.
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, encouraging and supporting 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 follow all Provincial Health Authority pandemic guidelines, Worksafe BC requirements, City of Maple Ridge Exposure Control Polices and align with School District 42 Policies.
Registration for Fall 2021 will begin on June 22, 2021 at 6:00 AM. Please read the information below regarding how to register.
