Calgary AfterSchool background


Home For Parents For Providers


Calgary AfterSchool provides a variety of high-quality, supervised, and fun activities for children and youth in the after school timeframe. Calgary AfterSchool programs are provided by The City of Calgary and non-profit organizations funded through The City of Calgary Family & Community Support Services. In addition, some non-profit organizations that offer after school programming are privately funded.

Research shows that sustained participation in high-quality after school programming can help children and youth to stay productive and to achieve age-appropriate developmental milestones. After school programming provides young people with an outlet to spend their time more constructively.

Additional benefits of participation in quality after school programming include positive child and youth development in one or more of four developmental domains:

  • physical health and development
  • social development
  • emotional development
  • intellectual development

Research shows that achievement in developmental outcomes in childhood, adolescence, and early adulthood serve as the building blocks for success and happiness in adulthood.
