       Out of School Care
The HCA is proud to offer the Licensed Out of School Care (OSC) service to the community. The
OSC provides a safe drop off and pick up for children enrolled at A.R. Lord and Hastings Elementary
schools. The program provides a stimulating environment for participants to be engaged in
activities in a positive atmosphere. The program incorporates community field trips and Community
Centre extras (i.e. outdoor use) wherever possible. Should your child be enrolled in another program
in the Centre, staff are able to walk your child to the class.
