Our philosophy is to provide a caring, supervised environment for children.
Kids Choice provides childcare services which create a setting where parents and staff work together as a team towards meeting the individual child’s physical, social, emotional, creative and intellectual needs.
The Child Care Center is designed to maintain each child’s individuality, including identity, dignity and human rights.
Kids Choice was granted accreditation in 2007 through AELCS (The Alberta Association for the Accreditation of Early Learning and Care Services). We also went through the reaccreditation process in the spring of 2010 and were successful.
Kids Choice Childcare Centre has an ongoing commitment to provide quality child care to all children & families by treating all individuals with fairness and respect.
Our Vision is to see all children grow and develop so that they reach their full potential.
Our Objective is to maintain, operate and conduct a high quality learning-through-play childcare program.
We do this by providing good physical care, a sound educational program designed to meet the social, emotional, physical, creative and intellectual needs of children and in doing so to meet the standards set out by Children’s Services for the Province of Alberta as well as meeting all the standards of Child Care Accreditation as set out by AELCS.
The Centre wishes to ensure that the experience of attendance by children is a positive and happy one for both parents and children. To this end we welcome all families and inquires.
