Proud to be named an Alberta Early Learning and Child Care Centre
HSCA’s Hillhurst-Sunnyside Daycare is excited to have been named one of 22 Early Learning and Child Care (ELCC) Centres across Alberta.
What we offer
To be selected as an Early Learning and Child Care Centre, we were tasked with making improvements that go above and beyond other child care programs. Our program uses an evidence-based *child care curriculum framework. This program was developed by early learning and child care educators, early childhood academics, government, and professionals working in related fields. It is designed to foster improved early childhood development outcomes so your child can get the best possible start to life.
Starting May 1st 2017, we will also be offering capped parent fees at $25/day with the help of financial support from the Province of Alberta. By January 2018, we will be adding more childcare spaces to our program for vulnerable families in Hillhurst-Sunnyside, as well as offering more inclusive supports for children with diverse needs.
Thank you for your interest in our Early Learning and Child Care Centre program. Please understand that because space is limited, our program is offered first to residents of the Hillhurst-Sunnyside Community. We currently have no spaces open on our waitlist. To be contacted when a spot becomes available on our waiting list, please submit a waitlist application (below). We will contact you should a space become available.
Once completed please submit to our Childcare Director Jaimie Hagman-Ahtom,
