Melissa Street

About Melissa Street

The afterschool program that runs out of Melissa Street accommodates children from Kindergarten to Grade 5 who attend Barkers’ Point Elementary. Located in the Pepper Creek area, this facility is as diverse as it is expansive. Fun and creative centres like a playhouse, a school bus and a cozy reading corner are irresistible to the children and offer endless opportunity for learning and play. Their outdoor play space boasts a playground, hills and a wooded area which encourages great imaginative play. Transportation to our facility from school is provided by the school district.
