We are licensed program and therefore require Registration forms to be filled in as well as a copy of your child's immunization records prior to having your child attend our programs.
We also have emergency consent cards in our office that must be filled out prior to your child attending. These cards have important contact information of your children and are taken with us whenever we leave the building.
Please also take a moment to review our Family Handbook prior to attending our programs.
Cancelation and Refund Policy
The cancelation and refund policy was changed on January 1, 2016. This change allows Kids on the Go program leader’s adequate time to inform families on the waitlist when there is a cancelation, giving more children the opportunity to take part.
Caregivers who wish to change their child’s days of enrollment or to withdraw from the program are asked to give written notice a calendar month in advance to email@example.com. For example, changes for the month of November must be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than September 30. Changes made less than one calendar month in advance are not eligible for refunds. "Switching or swapping" is still considered a cancelation and therefore days does not allow for a refund. Additionally "trading" days with other families is not permitted.
Kids on the Go has a long waitlist and we appreciate your help offering programming to as many children as possible.
If you would like to email or phone in your requests for additions or cancelations please email email@example.com or call 604-935-8370. Both the phone voice mail and email address are checked frequently throughout the day.
The program leaders support children in a variety of activities including outdoor play, day trips, gym time, cooking, games, crafts, and quiet play. Children will be given the opportunity to offer their input into the program and help plan activities and events.

Leader In Training Program (LIT)
The RMOW has launched an exciting program at Kids on the Go called “Leader In Training”, which was developed to help keep older children (eights years of age and older) who are in the afterschool club engaged and excited in the Kids on the Go program. This program will run every Monday and Wednesday afterschool.
Some exciting projects will include, developing card carrying members and a social contract, a newsletter that will go out every month, planning the daily activities and snack schedule, decorating and taking over a “club house” to call their own at Myrtle Phillip, working towards fundraising projects for families in need, and developing a picture book for preschool friends.
The goal of the program is to keep the momentum growing and potentially develop this into a club of its own that is specifically geared to that elusive age group who might be a bit tired of the Kids on the Go routines but who are not quite ready to be left on their own at home yet.
Parents are invited to share their ideas. To date, the program has developed its first newsletter. Please see details below, and if you have any questions or comments, feel free to contact email@example.com.
