We collectively bring 40 years plus experience in our Not for Profit Early Learning and Child Care Centre both in the profession and in Leadership.
Our Centre had successfully provided affordable childcare under the Non Profit $25 a day pilot project for over 3 years for families in High River and now we are under the NEW Alberta/Federal ELCC agreement that reduces fees for parents.

Daydreams Play Academy and daydreams ELCC Ltd focuses on the Alberta's FLIGHT Curriculum and Learning through Play Philosophies.
All environments has been carefully designed to focus on the concepts that the Environment is the 3rd teacher.
This means families with children ages 6 months to 6 years old can attend our wonderful centers.
The outdoor spaces join both centers together and add a additional 2 new spaces to the original 3 yards. This means that every child can be outside at play together not like most centers where only a room at a time can go out, so limiting play outdoors. We believe sunshine and fresh air are as important as any other concepts. We use loose parts in a unique play environment to stimulate children's curiosity and learning. We have gardens for children to enjoy and plant, forests to do small world play, construction areas, mud kitchens and we have sensory areas, and are now working on a new four season outdoor Art area with canopy for sunshade/rain or snow.
The area will be conveniently located at our entrance so that activities can be shared and viewed by parents on drop off and pick up.
