Deep Creek Timetables (2022 Timetable) (2023 Timetable)

**Additional Hours in 2022 Model – Optional Activity Group

The change in timetable has enabled an additional 2.5 hours of Activity Group to be available on Mondays for children attending the 4-year-old program.  The additional 2.5 hours is not part of the 15 hours funded kindergarten program. The extra 2.5 hours on Mondays consists of both structured and unstructured activities led by our Deep Creek Early Childhood Educators.

Please Note: As of 2023 we will no longer be offering the optional Activity Group to make way for new timetable and the increased hours to the 3-year-old funded kindergarten program.
