Our Halifax campus in the Fairmount/Armdale area offers pre-primary through grade 12, and our Timberlea campus accepts children as young as 18 months into our licenced Christian daycare, and runs through to Grade 1.  In future our Timberlea elementary program will expand to run from Pre-Primary to Grade 3 or 4.

Yes!  At Timberlea’s Early Childhood Education Centre, we offer before and after school care with extended programming for Ages 18months through 4yrs.  Camps and other programs are also offered during holidays and summer break.  Before- and after-school care is also available at HCA Armdale Campus for students of all ages.

No.  Parents are responsible for transporting their children.  However several parent car pools are operating in HRM, decreasing the demands on our parents.  For 2019/20 HCA is evaluating if there is sufficient demand to operate a shuttle service from Dartmouth and from Sackville, where those using the service drop off their students at a central location in the morning and pick them up at the same location after school.  If launched, this service would require payment of additional fees.
