Out of school care IN RED DEER THAT FITS YOUR SCHEDULE

When children surpass daycare age, yet are too young to be unattended, out of school care is not only helpful, it is essential. From Professional Development days to the early dismissals, we provide reliable before and after school care to Red Deer families. Ideal for working parents, these services provide care for kindergarten and elementary aged children outside of school hours.

OUT OF SCHOOL CARE PROGRAMS

Red Deer Child Care offers 3 different layouts of out of school care programs and is dependent on space availability at each of the schools. We currently offer out of school care programs in portables, which are located on site at specific schools in Red Deer. In addition to programs offered in portables, we also have programs set up in classrooms as well as in some gymnasiums. To find out which type of program setup is offered at your school, please contact the Coordinator responsible for that school. That list can be found here.

HOLIDAY PROGRAMS

While schools provide numerous seasonal breaks, often families continue to work during these periods and require care. Holiday programs function during major school breaks, including summer, winter, and spring, operating between the hours of 6:45 AM and 6:00 PM. Find reliable child care without forgoing the traditional fun of the season.
