Accreditation

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.  All have security checks, child welfare checks and are trained in Child Care First Aid and CPR.  Each staff member is also encouraged and supported to continue his/her professional development in the child care field.  The experience and passion of our staff members create an enriching and exciting learning environment for your child.  In addition, our Executive Director, Ela Olszewska, won an Alberta Child Care Professional Award of Excellence in 2010.  These awards honour child care professionals who exemplify leadership and dedication in their field.
