Out of School Care

The Out of School Care Program is designed to provide a safe and caring environment for children in grades 1-6, who require before and/or after school care. Quality programming,easy access and affordable fees are the primary focus of our programs.

In Alberta, all licensed and approved child care programs must meet a minimum set of provincial standards. The Alberta Child Care Accreditation program establishes standards that exceed those in the provincial standards. These higher standards have been developed by members of the child care sector, together with the Ministry of Human Services. An accreditation agency works with accredited programs to make sure they follow these standards. This voluntary program is the only one of its kind in Canada. We are proud to have 5 accredited and 1 pre-accredited program to offer to families in Fort McMurray.

Our programs are staffed by fully qualified, professionally trained personnel. The young men and women who work in our programs model energy and a zest for life and exploration to the children in the programs.

Our programs are committed to providing children with an opportunity to further their personal development within a responsive and deliberately implemented program. Each child care room differs in terms of the environment, routine and activities in response to the diversity of the children in the group. However, all share a common philosophy that facilitates the provision of high quality childcare that focuses on the  social, physical, intellectual, creative and emotional development of the child.
