Riverbend

Out of School Care

Overview

Little Steps Riverbend is located inside the Riverbend Community Centre. This Little Steps centre offers out of school care for children in kindergarten to grade 6 attending Riverbend Elementary school and Holy Angels school.

Our large open classrooms are designed to meet the needs of your child with developmentally appropriate materials purposely set-up to evoke exploration and discovery. By respecting our environment as the “third teacher,” we strive to offer our students a uniquely warm, inviting, and child-centred atmosphere where they are free to explore, discover, and grow at their own pace and in their own way. 

We have access to the community centre grounds where we can explore the large open field, school playgrounds, and the many pathways that connect us to the surrounding neighbourhoods. We also utilize the community centre’s large Bow River room for physical activity indoors during inclement weather.
