  • Trained and certified child care staff
  • A place where all children are treated with dignity and respect
  • A nurturing environment
  • Developmentally appropriate planned activities that are designed to help each child develop to his or her full potential
  • "Learn through play" philosophy
  • Encouraging and welcoming parental input to build the connection between home and their child care program, a key ingredient to success in the child care experience.
  • Serving each child’s and each family’s unique needs.

Our School Age Programs operate before and after school. Fun, action packed day programs are offered during all Professional Development Days. School Age Programs are located in elementary schools throughout Red Deer in both the Public and Catholic school systems. Programming provides for the active needs of children ages 4.5 to 12 in their out of school hours - mornings from 6:45am and after school until 6:00pm. We offer full day holiday programs like Easter, Christmas, and Summer breaks.
