Covid-19 Update from Block 8 Academy
Jun 1, 2020
Update: Yes, we are open, offering care for children in kindergarten-grade 5. Our classes are very small, and, as always, licensed under supervision by Fraser Health. Our staff is working hard to keep YOU working hard!
Please email admin@block8academy to register for care during the school year or for our Weekly Summer Camps.
As an Essential Service Provider, we have been open through COVID-19, following daycare sanitization procedures as well as modified requirements for health and safety. If for some reason the situation takes a downturn and daycares in British Columbia must close, we will issue full refunds for Summer Camp registrations. Priority is being given to families of Emergency Services and Essential Workers workers.
If your child shows symptoms of respiratory illness, they will not be accepted in care. Credits for future care will be issued
Tutoring - Elementary (Math, Reading, Writing, Phonics) $45 per session
Our tutors will develop a program specific to your child, and ensure they give the support and encouragement required to help your child achieve success in school. The tutor will work with you to determine target areas, and build the program with those in mind.
Our tutors have degrees in elementary education or university/college degrees in areas related to the subject they are tutoring.
If your child is in Block 8 Daycare, the tutor can sign your child out (with your written permission) from daycare, and sign them back in afterwards.
There will be a maximum of 3 students in a session, Sessions only take place on days that SD43 is in session.
Initial commitment of 8 sessions. Tutoring sessions are ongoing weekly or bi-weekly; 30 days noticed prior to cancellation. 2 make- up classes per school year.
