The Slave Lake Child Care Society is a non-profit organization. Our organization is governed by a volunteer board consisting mainly of parents and other interested community members. We provide a place where parents can leave their children when care is needed. Parents can be assured that their children will receive excellent care at our facilities. The programs provide an environment that is conducive to learning. The childcare workers provide an array of activities that foster intellectual, cultural, social, emotional, and physical development. The activities include language development, creative arts, drama, construction with building blocks, supervised play, computers, field trips, games and sports.
Daycare staff recognizes that children in our centre have different needs. We are here to guide them. Children are encouraged to interact with friends and have the opportunity to participate in active and quiet activities, to meet their needs in a safe and healthy environment while making them feel accepted, respected and secure. The staff in our daycare centre are all trained to meet the needs of the children socially, physically, intellectually and emotionally. As well as Early Childhood Development training, all of the staff also have their child/infant CPR and First Aid certificates. The daycare centre is set up to provide a safe and pleasant learning environment.
Legacy Childcare operates from 6:30am to 6:15pm, Monday to Friday, year round except on statutory holidays. Child care services are provided on a part-time & full-time basis for children ages birth to school age.
We are proud to be accredited, meeting and exceeding all Government Guidelines
Our Dayhome program provides quality care for children aged newborn to school age and have flexible hours to accommodate families. Dayhome providers are responsible for the safety, health and well being of the children in care. Daily routines provide the children with opportunities to grow and develop physically, socially, intellectually, and emotionally. The Dayhome settings, space, equipment, toys and materials, are appropriate for meeting the children's needs. The providers all have valid First-Aid and Early Childhood Development training. Our Dayhomes, like daycares, are accredited and follow government guidelines.
We are currently seeking Dayhome Providers to offer child care services from their home - if you are interested in this opportunity please call 780-849-2365.
