The Out-of-School Club (OSC) is a licensed childcare program offering care for school aged children, September to June.  With a focus on child-led play, exploration and natural curiosity, OSC aims to connect children through indoor and outdoor programming.

Registration for the 2021-2022 school year will open July 21, 2021 at 8:30am. 

Please note, the recent Town of Banff announcement of closure of some cohorted programs does not apply to Out of School Club, operating out of the Banff Elementary School. (updated Nov.22)

The OSC program hours compliment the Canadian Rockies Public School calendar- providing care during the after school hours, PD days, parent/teacher interviews and school breaks.
