History

In 1980, the Seven Oaks School Division identified a need for before and after school child care. The North YM/YWCA responded by opening three programs in 1981. These programs were located at Elwick School, A.E. Wright School, and James Nisbet School (later moved to O.V. Jewitt School).

A parent Board of Directors was formed at each centre in 1984 and shortly thereafter the three centres were incorporated into one organization - the O. K. Before & After School Child Care Centres Inc. - providing care to 90 children in the community.

In 1989, the North YM/YWCA opened the Constable E. Finney Before and After School Child Care Centre Inc. This centre was amalgamated with the O. K. Before & After School Child Care Centres Inc. in 1995 and the corporation seceded from the YM/YWCA in July 1, 1995. In 2008, services were expanded to include 5 year old children.


O.K. Before & After School Child Care programs provide licensed, quality care for approximately 184 children.
