Our centre is accredited by the Alberta Association for the Accreditation of Early Learning and Care Services. Accreditation is a voluntary program which aims to improve quality of care. It involves a number of rigorous steps which include a self-study which can take up to 12 months, a site visit and ongoing monitoring.

We provide activities that are innovative and engages active student involvement. Students are directly involved engaged in the planning and implementation of their weekly experiences. They are encouraged to suggest activities at group time for the following week. They are also involved in the preparation of materials, arranging props and setting up equipment.  Activities and experiences in our program contribute to all aspects of child and youth development.  Families are encouraged and welcomed to participate and visit our program. We believe that parent involvement in your student’s OSC program will bring about benefits for the whole family.
