School Age Care (5 – 12 years of age)

Our School Age Care program is specifically for children ages 6-12 attending Seymour Heights, Cove Cliff, Dorothy Lynas, St. Pius X, and Sherwood Park Elementary Schools. Children attend either our Parkgate or Seymour centres, where we provide opportunities for post-school day down time, child-led creative play, arts, crafts, and games; as well as time to run, jump, and just be a little silly.

Our trained staff build relationships with the children; learning who they are, what they’re interested in, and understanding what the children have in common with each other. We develop programs that take into account each child’s unique abilities and needs and create environments that are safe, inviting, and inclusive.

Sample of Daily Schedule:
7:30am Morning programs open
