Community Education has created Birch Buddies (BB), an after school program that is designed to provide a safe and fun environment for children after the normal school hours. Our Birch Buddies program is available to all currently enrolled students, Saplings through grade 5. This program is available every day that BGCS is in session. The program opens at 3:15 p.m. and closes at 5:00 p.m. Please see the school calendar for specific dates. We also offer Birch Buddies on non-school days if there are a minimum of five children signed up.
Only qualified and caring staff will work at the BB program! Our staff will work hard to ensure that your child’s participation in the program is a positive experience. All of our staff will have experience working with children and have current certifications in CPR and first aid.
Participants will also have access to the playground, tennis courts, ice skating rink, warming hut, pavilion, and nature trails located at the Birch Grove Center.
