Casual Care in each Program is available for pre-registered Parents. This means we have to have a Registration Form with all required Licensing Information. When you need the service you email and we confirm availability for the day and time required by email. You pay only for the time used. There may be times when you ask for the service and it is not available due to ratio's. Great way for parents to try our environment, cool toys and philosophy and see if it meets your families needs.
Parents provide Snacks and Meals
We believe it is important for parents to provide food for their child in our environment. We keep our fees to one of the lowest in our community so that parents can provide those nutritous foods that a parent knows their child likes and meets the cultural and diverse requirements as well as potential food allergies. We focus on putting those resources that would be taken up by a food program to ensuring a Learning Environment with quality equipment and high end resources and trained well paid professional Educators.
We do offer Food Programs Like "Food for Thought" to those families who may be struggling to support them through this.
We support this Agency.
We offer awesome Event Days that provide opportunities for our diverse Early Learning community to gather and share food together.

We are considered to be one of the BEST Quality Early Learning Services in High River and surrounding areas. We receive feedback from a variety of Professional Agencies who have a chance see inside many Preschools and Daycares throughout the region and are qualified to make this statement.
We do ask for deposits in our Centre which are 1/2 month fee. These deposits are returned to you in full when you leave our facility when you provide two weeks written notice. If you are a subsidy client then you also need to meet your required hours of care during that notice period. If you do, the deposit is returned in full. This is a great way for you to then apply it to whatever service you will be going too.
