Welcome to Educentres
Educentres is a Calgary owned and operated business that has been providing child care to the community for over thirty years.
We provide a nurturing environment that fosters a child’s emotional, social, intellectual, and physical development. We allow children to explore and learn through guidance and individual attention in a clean, healthy and creative environment designed especially for children. We provide a fully inclusive program for all children no matter what their developmental abilities are.
We follow a Learning Through Play Curriculum that includes seven key components.
These components are: sand, water, fine motor activities, gross motor activities, dramatic play, art, and language. These are set up in each classroom as activity centers that are used in conjunction with program plans to enhance and encourage each child’s development.
We work with a variety of community programs in order to provide appropriate care and early education to all children.
Some of these programs include Supported Childcare Services, Providence Children’s Services, as well as many of the programs through the Southern Alberta Children’s Hospital.
We hire well trained and knowledgeable staff, who demonstrate a caring attitude toward your children.
Our centre operates on a Child\Staff ratio that is set out by the Provincial Government. We strive to lower our ratios during key points throughout the day, this way the children get the individual attention they need in order to learn and develop at their own pace.
Some of the ways we keep our parents involved:
- Regular communication with teachers and parents
- Newsletters and parent events throughout the year
- Information on community resources
- Nutritional support and advice
- Parent workshops
