Program rates

Our 2024-2025 rates are $37.50/day, Monday to Friday.

Please note that you will be billed on a month-by-month basis subject to the number of school days per month. We are not a drop-in service, and if a child is absent or away on vacation, all fees still need to be paid in full for that month based on the number of school days they are registered for.

Dates

The I heART program runs from September through June, and we welcome students to join at any point during the school year if space permits. However, please note that the program excludes days when SD48 schools are closed, including statutory holidays, breaks, and professional development (Pro-D) days. Students will not be charged for these days.

 

Hours

School pick-up time to 6 pm. 
We give the last child to be picked up some candy, it takes away the disappointment of being the last one there and the sugar rush after is just an added bonus for parents. Please note that if you are late the stakes go up and they are given more and more sugar by the minute!

How our art program works

We help children gain key art skills, increase self-esteem as they build new skills, and deepen connections to their talent and technique. Each week will cover a different theme; for example, a famous artist, space, fairy tales, fantasy characters, and more. I heART starts with outdoor time at school (weather permitting), a safe ride on our HAPPI-BUS driven by our experienced and safe owner, Marcus. We then have snack time so students can focus on their art lessons with a clear mind and plenty of energy. Each day features a themed art lesson and then time for homework, play, or a free-flow art project.

What to Bring and Wear
To ensure that your child has the best experience at Happimess, please take note of the following recommendations regarding what to bring and wear:
Clothing
Messy Clothes: Art projects can get messy! Please dress your child in clothes that can get dirty or stained. We recommend sending an extra set of clothes in case of spills or accidents.

Snacks and Food
Snacks: Please pack extra snacks for your child to enjoy during Happimess time. We provide a snack time to ensure that all students have the energy they need for their art lessons and activities.We have a full-sized fridge, microwave, and toaster oven available for use, so please send whatever your child likes to eat.

Water Bottle: Please send a refillable water bottle with your child to keep them hydrated throughout the day.

Peanut Policy: We are NOT a peanut-free facility. If your child brings any food containing nuts, please inform us so we can take appropriate precautions if an allergic child joins our program. Due to allergies and dietary restrictions, we ask that children do not share their food.

Shareable Snacks: If you wish to send a shareable snack, please contact us ahead of time to ensure it’s safe for all the children in the program.

Additional Items
Art Supplies: All necessary art supplies are provided by Happimess, so there’s no need to bring any from home.

Personal Items: We recommend labeling all personal items with your child’s name to prevent loss. Please refrain from sending valuable items or toys, as Happimess cannot be responsible for lost or damaged personal belongings.

Monthly Fees

Invoices are due at the beginning of each month. Payments can be conveniently made online or through e-transfer. Please note that program fees are assessed annually, and we will provide three months’ advance notice for any fee adjustments. The one-month non-refundable deposit will be applied to cover the month of June.
 

Change of Schedule/Cancellation Notice

For any change in a child’s schedule, families must provide two weeks’ notice via email. If the number of days is reduced, no refund will be issued. Store credit may be provided at Happimess’ discretion and is valid for six months from the date of issue. Store credit can only be used towards Pro-D day camps and Spring/Winter camps.

If you wish to cancel your child’s enrollment in the program, you must provide at least 30 days’ notice via email. The effective date of the cancellation will be the first of the following month after the notice period ends. The one-month non-refundable deposit will cover the fees for that following month.

 

Early Dismissal and Pro D-days

We deeply value our commitment to providing the best possible service to our families during early dismissals and professional development (Pro-D) days. We understand that early dismissals come with different schedules, including the standard 2:00 pm dismissal and the noon dismissal on collaboration days.

For the standard 2:00 pm dismissal, while we do our best to arrange pick-up services, we cannot guarantee it. We will inform you of our ability to provide pick-up services one week prior to the early dismissal day.

However, on collaboration days when children are dismissed at noon, we do not offer pick-up services due to the varying schedules of different schools. Instead, we welcome your child to be dropped off at Happimess at 3:15 pm or meet the Happibus at your child’s school at 3:00 pm.

We deeply appreciate your understanding and support during these times. It’s important to mention that regardless of whether your child attends on days with early dismissal, you will still be billed for those days. This is because we continue to run our program and reserve your child’s spot.

Please note that on Pro-D days, we do not offer after-school programs, and families are not billed for these days. Instead, we provide camps from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm, which must be booked separately. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and encourage you to make alternate arrangements for these days if the camp is not suitable. To book our camps Click Here!
