Child’s Play offers before and after school care at 15 locations across Calgary, Cochrane and Airdrie. We operate within Calgary Catholic School District, Calgary Board of Education and Rocky View School District.
We believe that PLAY is a very important aspect of a child’s day. Our trained Playworkers are on hand to ensure that children are able to freely choose activities, and to ensure children have a positive play experience with a variety of hands on activities and social interactions with adults and peers, fostering the development of young children and to help them understand the world around them’.
Our days are not overly scheduled but have a routine to ensure children are comfortable with their space and expectations.
We have lots of outdoor time, and we won’t always use a fixed structured play equipment, as this only offers one or 2 types of play, instead we play games, use water, loose parts such as cardboard boxes, material, rope, tyres and general ‘scrap’, as we find children can be their most creative without prescriptive toys.
