After School Programs & Youth Camps
Our Commitment: To provide quality educational services with Certified School Age Childcare staff. 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 Charlottetown. We are providing working parents/guardians with year around child care for their school age children (ages 5 to 12). Under the direction of the 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 program (7:30 to 6:00pm) to parents during professional development days, parent/teacher interviews days, most storm days, and with Camps over Christmas Break, March Break and Summer vacation.
