Connections Kids Club

The Before-and-After School Program is managed and operated by Richmond Youth Service Agency, a local charitable organization that has been serving the community since 1974.  Our agency has been running camps and after-school programs for many years. Our first licensed childcare was launched at Blundell Elementary in 2014.  In September 2015 we opened an additional location at William Cook Elementary.  Thanks to a School’s Out Grant from United Way Lower Mainland we are able to offer affordable and accessible care for families in Richmond.

Our child care centre’s mission is to create a caring, affordable, inclusive and quality child-directed program where children aged 5-12 learn through play in individual, group, structured and unstructured activities.  Our philosophy of care is based on the BC Early Learning Framework and strives to support each child in experiencing and achieving:

  • A Sense of Well Being and Belonging
  • Exploration and Creativity
  • Language and Literacy
  • Social Responsibility and Diversity
