After School Care in Okotoks – A Positive and Productive Environment

School age children are more independent and are learning society’s social manners. At this stage learning through play looks different as children begin their exploration into social norms and their individual roles in society. Crystalridge Learning Centre picks up where school leaves off. Our after school care program in Okotoks provides children the opportunity to get help with their homework and chances to play with their friends. 

To help encourage the children’s development we aim to provide a program that is centred around their interests but with diversity to allow for enriched and open-ended activities; this gives school age children both the freedom and structure they need. Every child is unique and we consider every student’s individual needs. Your child will feel accepted and cared for as they enjoy learning and growing at our centre.
