Swansea Kids Place (SKP)

SKP is Swansea’s popular before- and after-school program for community children between the ages of six and 12. Located next to the school, SKP has access to the Swansea Community Centre facilities, the play yards, Rennie Park, and during the winter, the Rennie Rink. SKP offers a varied program that enhances physical, social and cognitive skills. Full programs are available on P.A. Days, and during the winter and March Breaks. SKP has a long wait list, so if you think you might need a spot in the future, please sign up now. SKP’s fees are comparable to other public school-based day-care programs. For more information, contact SKP at 416-763-1908.
