Out-of-School Care

Here in the Hillhurst Sunnyside OOSC we aim to create a program where the individual needs of all our children can be met through a wide variety of creative, educational and recreational activities.

In recognizing each child as an individual we attempt to offer as wide a range of activities as possible, so their developmental needs can be met on a daily basis. Through these choices we hope to enhance the physical, social, intellectual, creative and emotional wellbeing of our children in a safe and secure environment where they feel they have the room to grow and flourish.

Each day we offer options based around both active and passive activities, with choices being centered on Gym time, outside activities, craft and creative activities, and a general games/play area. A quiet area for homework and reading is also provided. In giving our children these choices we aim to encourage them to make decisions for themselves thus helping build self-esteem.

Talk is also an important part of the OOSC program. In giving the children time to talk and listen we hope they will learn to respect the views of others, while feeling free to express opinions of their own. Social interaction is an important life skill and we feel it our duty to help each child develop social skills such as patience, cooperation, respect for self and others, acceptance of other’s views and how to build positive human relationships.

Ultimately, however OOSC is about having as much fun as possible in a safe and secure environment with enthusiastic, energetic people who care!!!!


Proud to be named an Alberta Early Learning and Child Care Centre

HSCA’s Hillhurst-Sunnyside Out of School Care is excited to have been named one of 22 Early Learning and Child Care (ELCC) Centres across Alberta.

What we offer

To be selected as an Early Learning and Child Care Centre, we were tasked with making improvements that go above and beyond other child care programs. Our program uses an evidence-based *child care curriculum framework. This program was developed by early learning and child care educators, early childhood academics, government, and professionals working in related fields. It is designed to foster improved early childhood development outcomes so your child can get the best possible start to life.

Starting May 1st 2018, we will also be offering capped parent fees TO KINDERGARTEN FAMILIES ONLY at $25/day with the help of financial support from the Province of Alberta.  Currently, we can’t offer capped fees to Grades 1-6 as the ELCC pilot project is for children infant-kindergarten age only. 


Thank you for your interest in our Early Learning and Child Care Centre program. Please understand that because space is limited, our program is offered first to residents of the Hillhurst-Sunnyside Community.   We will contact you should a space become available.
