Lumby School’s Out is a licensed program for children grades K-6 and is located at Lumby Christian Church. Regular hours are Monday-Friday, 2:30-5:30 pm, most Pro D Days and Spring Break from 8:00-5:30 pm

Lumby School’s Out Program provides a safe and supportive environment that has had a positive impact on children.  By creating a setting that encourages enthusiasm for learning, increased positive social interactions and skill building, we create an atmosphere that assists children to reach their full potential.  The program incorporates a large number of learning opportunities with crafts; science experiments; planned games; visits and interactions with other local groups and organizations; and daily outdoor activities.   The program promotes problem solving, teamwork, empathy, social awareness, and self-awareness all addressing the key service delivery areas of physical, social and emotional development as well as Self-awareness and Personal Responsibility.  Activities and supports are inter-woven in the day-to-day operation of the program.  The day-to-day operation varies, but will include outside time, community guests, structured activities, as well as free time.

Although the program is currently full, we encourage you to complete a registration form and submit it.

Lumby and Cherryville Preschool

Early Childhood Education programs foster healthy development and encourage a love of learning and teach children the skills necessary to be “successful students” when entering the education system.  The investment in children during their early years will have substantial positive effect on long-term health and development. Inequities in child development are preventable and accessible quality preschool programs are key in reducing vulnerabilities. Our goal will to be to have equal opportunity to access the preschool program.   As a licensed program, both locations will allow for families to apply for subsidies in order to have their children attend.  Assistance will also be provided to families in completing and submitting the necessary information to secure the subsidy available.  This will limit the barrier of limited income for families who wish to have their children participate and grow by attending the Lumby or Cherryville Preschool opportunity.

GREAT NEWS! Whitevalley and Jiminy Crickets have formed a partnership in order to provide a 4 year old and a 3 year old Lumby Preschool programs this year! Plans are underway and we hope to start LUMBY Preschool mid-September. To register, please email lumbypreschool@whitevalley.ca
