Out-of-School Care

Child care that helps kids blossom

We run out-of-school care programs in Squamish and Pemberton. You may have your child in our program one day any number of days a week; the fees vary according to how often often your child is with us.

Squamish Out-of-School Care — before and after school

We offer care for children aged 5-12 at five locations in Squamish: Mamquam, Brackendale, Squamish, Garibaldi Highlands and Valleycliffe elementary schools. The programs run when school is in session. Activities include cooking, drama, arts and crafts, science and exploration, homework time, relaxation and field trips. The structured activities are balanced by unstructured activities such as free play, outdoor play, art, music, circle, snack and field trips.

Pemberton After-School Club — 3-6pm
The after-school club is a safe, fun and active program that keeps children busy after school. Children have indoor and outdoor time as well as time for art, writing and games. They also have time for homework.

“Amazing teachers. Taking kids outside and exploring the neighborhoods around the school. Letting kids play (and not be stressed). Letting kids get to build relationships with children of different ages from different classes. Incredible program!”
