Program Information

Sports For Kids offers Edmonton out-of-school care programs for children between the ages of 5 to 12 years old. Our program offers children with opportunities to experience a variety of different sports and recreational activities in a fun and non-competitive environment. We value respect, the use of proper manners, sportsmanship, participation and enjoyment and encourage these principals at all times.

Sports For Kids is pleased to be offering its eighteenth year of childcare service in the Caernarvon area. We are located inside Katherine Therrien School at 15040 118 Street.

Our program runs out of one of the classrooms and is filled with games, blocks, Lego, books and more. We also have full access to a lovely 1200 sq foot gymnasium everyday. This allows us to schedule great programs that accommodate every child’s needs.


Our out-of-school care is broken down into three different components:

  • Morning Care (7:00 am – 9:00 am)
  • Kinder Care (11:15 am – 6:00 pm)
  • Out of School Care (3:20 pm – 6:00 pm)

Early dismissal on Thursdays is also accommodated.

Along with the regular program, Sports For Kids offers specialty sports programs. These are normally offered once a week for one hour. With different sports each day to keep your child active and engaged.
