Before & After School Care

For over 14 years our Program has been providing enriched, quality childcare to Cochrane families and their children. We are dedicated to providing children with exceptional care in a beautiful, natural environment that is wholesome, fun, interesting and educational. We believe that children learn best through imaginative play in natural environments both indoors and out, which encourages discovery, independence, imagination and social interaction. In order to develop self-esteem and social competence, the children are encouraged to help themselves, take initiative and become increasingly independent. Our program offers school age children the opportunity to socialize and explore in a caring environment that considers their individual needs, interests and developmental levels.
