After School Programs & Youth Camps
Our Commitment: To provide quality educational services with certified Early Childhood Educators. To be aware of each child’s individuality and to offer physical, social, and emotional development that both challenges and nurtures the child at their present stage of development.
Murphy’s Community Centre offers programs centrally located in the heart of downtown Charlottetown and ensure working parents are provided with quality year round child care for their school aged children (ages 5–12). Under the direction of School Age Program Manager, our programs are built to encourage growth of mind, body, and spirit. Any child who is registered with us will receive a well-rounded, high quality program that promotes team play and encourages individual expression.
The Centre offers a full day programming (7:30am – 6:00pm) during parent/teacher interview days, professional development days, most storm days, Christmas break, March break and summer vacation.
