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. In 2020, we expanded and opened a satellite site out of École Templeton School which is licensed to include infant, preschool and school age care.
The O.K. Before & After School Child Care programs provide licensed, quality care for approximately 288 children.
