Our Name

Shaughnessy Point Grey Out of School Care Society, affectionately known as SPG.

Our Centre

SPG is located in the activity room of Quilchena Elementary school in the Kerrisdale neighborhood of Vancouver. This has been our home base since the society's incorporation in September 1977. We are proud to be a non-profit, parent-run organization meeting the needs of Quilchena Elementary School students and their families.

Our Philosophy

Our goal is to provide professional care, tending to the needs of each child for encouragement and guidance. We aim to make it possible, through the environment we create and the program we implement, for children to become more aware of their own self-worth and more responsible for their actions.

Our program runs Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. twelve months a year (excluding statutory holidays), serves more than 60 families from all parts of the community and promotes the cultural and artistic development of youth.  Through our recreational program, we attempt to build skills and confidence within all individuals and offer opportunities to expand their horizons.
