For Children in the Youth Development Program

Parents of children enrolled in the Youth Development Program (YDP), operated by Owl, are asked to provide information to confirm their plans for upcoming Professional Development (PD) Days, March or Winter Break Camp, and Easter Monday.

PD and other closure days for the 2020-2021 school year can be found in the right column of the web page, as well as the Opt-In/out request forms.


November 23, 2020 PD Day

Families with a child scheduled to attend are required to opt-out in writing if not attending the PD day on November 23, 2020. You must opt-out by Monday, November 9 at 11:59pm. Failure to do so, will result in your account being charged for this date. You may also wish to use the below form to opt-in/out for all future PD days, Winter Break and March Break Camp.

Opt-Out: Available October 26, 2020

If your child does not regularly attend on a Monday, you may wish to opt-in for a full-day of care with Owl.

Opt-In: Available October 26, 2020

new symbols arrowDue to COVID-19 health and safety protocols, PD Day care will be offered at each location but with set hours of 8:00 am to 5:00 pm only. Families who sign up for care must drop off no earlier than 8:00 am and must pick up no later than 5:00 pm.

The WRDSB extended day program is not operating on Nov. 23. If your YDP child has a sibling in extended day, you may register them to attend our PD Day program on Nov 23 since they are already attending the same school and within your child’s bubble.

For Nov. 23/20, we commit to offering PD Day care at each YDP location, but reserve the right in future to cancel PD Day Care if a location does not meet a minimum registration threshold.
