Other Costs and Fees

At Mindware, as you’ll see, supplementary costs (not included in tuition) are very low.


Before and After School

Before and after school care is provided from 8:30 – 4:15. There is no cost for this service. Drop off is between 8:30 a.m. – 9:00 a.m.  Pickup is between 3:15 p.m. – 3:40 p.m.

We also have a collaborative arrangement with the Ottawa Boys & Girls Club*.  Enrolled students in this program are picked up at MindWare Academy by the BGC staff and brought to the local Club (almost across the street).  Care is provided with fun & educational programming until as late as 7:00 p.m.  There is no extra cost for this service!  

Students who do not enroll in the Boys & Girls Club must be picked up at MindWare Academy by 4:15 p.m. 


Children are not required to wear uniforms at MindWare Academy.

Field Trips

We take one field trip* at the end of the school year. The cost is generally around $30.00 per student. We do however bring guests into our school at no charge to the students. 

School Supplies

Students are required to supply the basics*, such as pens, pencils, erasers, binders and paper. Any special requirements are generally provided by the school.  


Many students in grade 6, 7 and 8 choose to use their own laptops. Although the school does not provide these, students are encouraged to use one.
