Out of School Club

OSC imageThe Out-of-School Club is a provincially licensed and accredited program offering childcare for children in kindergarten to grade 6 during the school year.

Activities vary each day and range from experimenting in the kitchen to frolicking in our beautiful mountain backyard! A healthy snack is provided in the afternoon.

Due to COVID-19, Out of School Club is currently closed for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year. 

Registration for the 2020-2021 will be announced soon. Please check back for up-to-date information or email community.services@banff.ca
