Calgary AfterSchool background


Calgary AfterSchool

Home For Parents For Providers


Calgary AfterSchool provides a variety of high-quality, supervised, and fun activities for children and youth aged 6 to 16 years between 3p.m. and 6p.m. on school days. CAS programs are provided by The City of Calgary, Recreation; The City of Calgary, Community & Neighbourhood Services; and non-profit organizations funded through The City of Calgary Family & Community Support Services (“FCSS”). 

Research shows that sustained participation in high-quality after-school programming can help children and youth to stay out of trouble and to achieve age-appropriate developmental milestones. After-school programming can increase young people’s "constructive use of time".

Additional benefits of participation in after-school programming can include "positive child and youth development" in one or more of four developmental domains: physical health and development, social development, emotional development, and intellectual development. Research shows the achievement of particular developmental outcomes in childhood, adolescence, and early adulthood serve as the building blocks for ongoing healthy development and subsequent success and happiness in adulthood.
