Out of School Club

The Out-of-School Club (OSC) is a licensed 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.

Registration for the 2021-2022 school year will open July 21, 2021 at 8:30am.

The OSC program hours compliment 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.
