Living Here

The goal of the Didsbury Out of School Care Association program ( DOSCA) is to provide for the needs of growing children. We offer a high level of health and safety standards, a better than adequate child-staff ratio and a stimulating program which provides for the physical, social, emotional, and intellectual needs of your child.
We strive, as you do, to encourage children to grow in self-respect, self-control, responsibility, and self-sufficiency.
The Didsbury Out of School Care Association was established to provide children with a special kind of learning experience, developing the child's potential physically, socially, intellectually and creatively.
We want our programs to be a fun, safe place for children to come when their parents cannot be with them. We believe that the best way for children to have these learning experiences is to incorporate social skills into our recreation planning to meet individual developmental needs.
