Beforecare and Aftercare

The school day at Paul Penna DJDS begins promptly at 8:45 am and runs until 3:45 pm. In the winter months, we dismiss at 2:30 pm on Fridays.


We are pleased to offer a limited Beforecare program, beginning at 8:00 am. Families interested in this program should contact Cheryl Fine at or by phone at 416-928-3537 ext. 135.

Please note that the MNjcc gymnasium is available to students and parents each morning from 8:00 am to 8:30 am. Children are welcome to make use of the facility under parent supervision.


The MNjcc, where we are housed, runs an Aftercare program, as well as a Schools Out program, which provides care for Paul Penna DJDS students on early dismissal days, and on days when there are no classes.

For more information on Aftercare or Schools Out, please contact Alisha Sandy at or 416-924-6211 ext. 277.
