Monarch Child Care Society (MCCS) was established on August 31, 1998.
In Alberta, all licensed and approved child care programs must meet a minimum set of provincial standards. The Alberta Child Care Accreditation program establishes standards that exceed those in the provincial standards. These higher standards have been developed by members of the child care sector, together with Alberta Children and Youth Services. An accreditation agency works with accredited programs to make sure they follow these standards. This voluntary program is the only one of its kind in Canada.
Child and Family Resource Association (C.A.F.R.A.) accreditation since September 1999.
The Alberta Association for the Accreditation of Early Learning and Care Services accreditation since April 2006.
Out-of-School-Care Accreditation since February 2010.
All our full-time staff members are Child Development Supervisors (former Level 3) and have almost 80 years of combined experience working in the not-for-profit child-care industry.
