Out of School Club

The Out-of-School Club (OSC) is a licenced childcare program offering care for school-aged children, September to June. With a focus on child-led play, exploration and natural curiosity, OSC aims to connect children through indoor and outdoor programming.

The program hours complement the Canadian Rockies Public School calendar, providing care during the after school hours, PD days, parent/teacher interviews, the staggered kindergarten entry and school breaks.
Please note which room your child is registered for when you are making changes to your registration or seeking program information.
