BGCCA Out of School Care programs provide quality, affordable care in a safe and nurturing environment for children in kindergarten to grade 6 attending all schools in the Cochrane area.
OSC Programs run yearly during the school year from September to June at our 5th Avenue, Glenbow, and Points West Club Locations.
We use a strengths based approach to seek out children's abilities, resources, and gifts to support growth through opportunities in developing socially, physically, intellectually, creatively and emotionally. Professional, qualified staff facilitate a culture of fun, acceptance and positive self-regard and love to play too!!

Located across from CIBC on 5th Avenue, our 5th Avenue Club houses our Grade K-6 OSC Programs from schools across Cochrane and Summer Camps in July and August. OSC Programming is run on both levels of the Club with walkout access to the Lion's Club Rodeo Grounds, so our kids get lots of outdoor time (when the weather permits, of course!). We offer
Before care, Kinder Care, and after care from this location for all schools except for some of our programs attending Glenbow school, which are run from our Glenbow location (see below). Glenbow school grades 2-6 aftercare attend our 5th Ave location.

Located beside Glenbow School (on the south end) on Glenpatrick Drive, our Glenbow Club provides OSC for children from Glenbow school only. This includes Glenbow before care, Glenbow Kindercare and aftercare for grades K and 1. (After care for Glenbow grades 2–6 children are provided at our 5th Ave location).

We recognize that our work, and the works of our clubs, takes place on traditional indigenous territories in Canada.
In the spirit of our efforts to promote reconciliation, BGC Cochrane and area acknowledges the traditional territories and oral practices of the Blackfoot (Siksika, Piikani, and Kainai), the Tsuut’ina (Sarcee), the Stoney Nakoda First Nations, the Métis Nation (Region 3), and all people who make their homes in the Treaty 7 region of Southern Alberta.
Today, Canada is home to many Indigenous peoples and we are grateful to have the opportunity to meet and work on this territory.
