Please contact the front office or Rosie at 604-257-8134 to put your child on the ongoing waitlist. Douglas Park strives to offer quality care in an environment that offers children a safe, nurturing place for them to socialize and participate in programmed activities.

We only offer care to children attending Emily Carr Elementary School and Edith Cavell Elementary School. Children are picked up at their school and walked back to the community centre. We only offer fulltime spaces (Mon-Fri).

Update for Re-Opening Cavell Before and After School Care – Fall 2023/24

Douglas Park Community Association is actively working with the Vancouver School Board to re-open before and after school childcare onsite at Edith Cavell Elementary for the 2023/24 school year.   Once we receive the go ahead from the VSB that the Cavell space is ready, we will engage with licensing to re-open.

We understand that this may be a challenging time for families as you plan for fall childcare.   We want to assure you that we are dedicated to re-opening at Cavell as soon as feasible and look forward to welcoming your children.

The re-opening of the Cavell School Age Care program at Cavell will increase space for our overall Carr and Cavell School Age Care program.

Kindercare 2023-2024 Registration


Registration is ONLINE only on Tuesday, March 7, 2023 at 7pm. 

There is a $100 refundable deposit paid at time of registration if you are successful in securing a spot. This is refunded at time of withdrawal. There are 10 spots available for children registered in Kindergarten at Emily Carr and 10 spots available for children registered in Kindergarten at Edith Cavell.

Current afterschool care families that have a Kindergarten sibling starting in September 2023, will have priority registration on these spaces. This is completed prior to this registration date.

If your child is waitlisted to get a spot in the school, you are able to hold onto your Kindercare spot until June 30, 2023. If at that time, your child has not been accepted into the school, you will need to give up your Kindercare spot and your $100 deposit will be refunded back to you.

Kindercare Registration Packages will be ready for pick up on June 1st, 2023.

There is no Morning Care registration. If your child secures a Kindercare space and you require Morning Care, you will indicate this in the registration package(additional monthly fee).
