Riverbend Community Leage
With the Riverbend Community League Building attached, we have built a mutually beneficial partnership with friends in our community. It is a wonderful space and certainly adds a unique dimension to Earl Buxton School. Priority booking of the school gym on weeknights has been given to groups and organizations affiliated with the community league.
St. Mary Elementary School
The school staff enjoy a positive working relationship with St. Mary Elementary School with whom we share a common playground.
The YMCA of Northern Alberta is the largest and most trusted provider of not-for-profit child care in the city. We provide child care from birth to 12 years of age, depending on the centre you choose.

- Daily communication and feedback between parents and staff (written daily reports in daycare).
- Free YMCA Child Membership allowing access to swimming lessons and other YMCA drop- in programs.
- Nutritious (and allergen aware) morning and afternoon snacks.
- School-age care provided during non-school days and holidays so parents are able to continue working.
