Our OSC programs offer a range of fun activities for school-aged children. Our experienced, educated, creative staff are passionate about providing exceptional childcare and strive to provide a fun and inclusive environment for your child. During OSC and camps, we provide a positive atmosphere in which children can develop self-esteem, confidence, and social awareness. While ensuring the kids have a great time, our focus is to encourage and facilitate physical and mental well being. Our staff offer a warm, safe, and welcoming environment so your child’s time here is fun and memorable. Your child will enjoy lots of fun adventures and create lasting memories. You, as a parent, can rest assured your child is in a safe, warm, and nurturing environment.
