Why Choose PHAS

Pleasant Heights After School (PHAS) was one of the first companies to provide before & after school care to children in northwest Calgary. PHAS opened its first location in 1976 to care for 30 elementary school children from the Mount Pleasant Community. Since then, PHAS has expanded to provide childcare to over 200 children in Kindergarten to Grade 6 from the following schools listed below.

With three locations in northwest Calgary (King George School, Mount Pleasant Community Centre, and Panorama Hills School), PHAS works with families to support their child’s development in a safe, caring and inclusive environment. Our enthusiastic and qualified staff provide age-appropriate indoor and outdoor activities that encourage each child’s growth and socialization. At PHAS, children play, learn and have fun!

Engage, Explore, Encourage

At PHAS, we believe in learning by doing. PHAS encourages children to learn through play and interactive activities that make learning fun! Learning through play helps children become natural problem-solvers and to think strategically while encouraging creativity and curiosity. PHAS also incorporates STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) and STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) concepts into our programs to engage young minds and develop practical skills through interest and self-directed discovery.
