Alberta Early Learning & Child Care Centre

Proud to be named an Alberta Early Learning and Child Care Centre

Africa Centre is excited to have been selected to provide 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 new childcare program will use 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.

When the Childcare and Early Learning program opens for business, we will also offer:

  • 40 licensed child care spaces,
  • Parent fees up to $25/day.
  • Inclusive supports for children with diverse needs,
  • Child care hours that may meet the needs of parents who work shift work or attend school;
