Child Care Centre

Your Child, Our Future 

 

We know you want the best for your child, that’s why it is our mission to create a community where all children can grow and develop in a healthy and safe environment. Our early learning and child care programs are supported by educated professionals that promote our philosophy by:

  • Modeling, reinforcing and supporting positive social behaviours
  • Viewing challenging behaviours as opportunities for learning
  • Responding to children in ways that respect their rights and dignity
  • Developing skills in imaginative and critical thinking
  • Supporting inclusivity and children’s diverse needs.

We care about you and your child. It is our goal to provide quality care by following children’s interests, best practices, employing educated staff, and following Alberta’s Flight curriculum.

 

A Facility Built For Growing Minds

We work hard to incorporate many features into our facility to help enrich the children’s experiences. Our centre currently has: 

  • A full in-house kitchen and full-time cook
  • A spacious outdoor playground 
  • A large outdoor courtyard equipped with a dedicated working children’s garden, large custom sandbox, tricycles, wagons, and scooters.
  • Access to Mount Royal’s campus including the library, learning spaces, and gymnasiums
  • Access to Mount Royal’s Child Development Lab 

As children develop and grow, so do we. Even with a robust centre, we continually seek opportunities to enhance our facility.

 

Our Programs

We are proud to offer many evidence-based programs in our centre:  

  • Full-time daycare 
  • Afternoon Kindergarten
  • Preschool
  • Before & After School care at St. James and St. Augustine schools

All of our programs are built on a practice of relationships, collaboration, and an image of a strong and capable child.

 

Leaders in Child Care

Our programs may stay the same, but our learning doesn’t. Our unique relationship with Mount Royal University allows us to continually share and learn progressive knowledge and best practices with specialists from their Bachelor of Child Studies Degree Program, and the Child Development Lab. This exchange gives us the resources to encourage your child’s growth and development in the best way possible. By setting the bar high, it allows us to become a leader in the childcare profession.
