Le Service de Garde Les Copains

The before and after-school care Les Copains is located within the Rose-des-Vents school in Vancouver and uses its premises (playground, classrooms, gymnasium, etc.)

Founded in 2002, the SDG has evolved greatly over the years and was renamed "Les Copains" in 2008.

Currently, our license allows us a maximum capacity of 135 children per day.


We are open from Monday to Friday from:

- 7:30 am to 8:30 am for before-school care

- 2:55 pm to 6 pm for after-school care

Every day, when the bell sounds, the children enrolled come to us directly when they just finished classes to give their presence to the educators

When all the children are gathered, there is an hour of free play time, the duration varies according to the time and the season. Educators supervise children who enjoy themselves for socializing, playing and eating snacks with friends

At the end of the free time, the children are divided into small groups (12 to 15 maximum according to the age) in the classrooms inside the school. Each educator leads a prepared activity that starts with about 15 minutes of homework.

Every two weeks, each educator develops a new activity in which children are registered in relation to their ages and interests. The activities offered are varied (sports, games, arts, crafts, cooking, science, theater and improvisation, etc.) and educators work alternately in different age groups
