OUT OF SCHOOL CARE

Due to the current wildfire situation in the Fort McMurray area, the decision has been made by the Fort McMurray Catholic School Board to not open Father Beauregard Schools for the 2017/18 school year. This will result in Father Beauregard Out of School Care registrants being bussed to school from Father Turcotte OSC and bussed back to FT OSC after school.

We are continuing to make plans to best serve all of our families as we work our way through this unprecedented situation together.  

For families with specific questions regarding their child care needs, please email Program Manager Chantelle Langdon - osc@fmcsd.ab.ca.


Out of School Care

Fort McMurray Catholic Schools and Mammoet Canada Western Ltd. have worked in partnership with Ministry of Human Services to provide support for children when parents are at work.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 7 fully accredited programs 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, a zest for life and exploration to the children in the programs.


All of our staff currently hold, or are in the process of completing their Early Childhood Certificate, Education Assistant Certificate, Early Childhood Diploma or the equivalent of. During the completion of these programs staff take training in, but not limited to, planning, documentation, emergent curriculum, health and safety and guiding children’s behaviours. This education allows our staff to implement strong programs which are based on the needs and interests of the children attending program. 
All staff working in program hold the following certifications: Alberta Childcare Certification, CPR and 1st aid, and a current Criminal Record Check. In each location there are staff certified in Food Safe and Non Violent Crisis Intervention. 

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.
