Laser City is offering a Remote Learning Centre for the upcoming school year.

What This Is and Isn't
We want to be very transparent about what this service is and isn't. We're doing our best to support our communities in these new times, and we hope that for some people we can provide a valuable service to help them and their families.

We are not trying to replace or replicate a school or teachers. We're providing a safe space for kids to participant in Online Schooling provided by their school board, rather than doing it from home.

Our staff are here to provide assistance, guidance and support to kids while they're at the facility. Parents will still need to be involved in their kids education, liaising with their teachers and helping with homework in the evenings.

All participants must be registered in their schools Online Education program. We aren't able to accommodate students who are homeschooling via a parent-led program - homeschooling is distinct from school-led online education in that it requires parents to deliver the education.

As this is a new service, there will be things that change as we get started. We'll always strive to do what's best for the kids and their families.

Safety

Covid-19 Safety Measures
Safety is our #1 priority.

Because of the size of our facility (over 17,000 sqft), we're in a unique position with distancing. We will be spacing the kids out and assigning seats during the learning portion of the day. With a maximum of 36 kids in the program, distancing is much easier.
  • All staff will be wearing masks. Masks will be required for kids while they can't physically distance. Because of the size of our facilities, physical distancing is almost always possible.
  • We have a rigorous cleaning schedule that happens during and after the day.
  • The facility is closed to the public while your kids are here, limiting the potential exposure opportunities.
  • Regular supervised hand washing and sanitizing is built into our daily schedule.
  • All children will be required to self-assess each day before attending. Anyone showing any symptoms of Covid-19 will need to stay home.
  • We will also temperature screen all children as they enter the facility, and monitor everyone throughout the day.
