We’re About The Little People

ACCREDITED FACILITY

We’re an accredited childcare facility and are inspected on a regular basis to ensure that our policies and practices are in accordance with Alberta Children Services.

FOSTERED LEARNING

We offer your child fun filled days by learning through play, and learning to interact and make new friends. Our common room has a variety of toys and equipment that allows the children to develop and foster their gross motor skills.

SECURE ENVIRONMENT

Having a safe environment is our main concern. Parents receive an access card upon registration that will allow them to enter the daycare. Visitors are met at the front door.

GREAT LOCATION

We are close to many areas that the children can access e.g. Edmonton Public Library, River Valley, Funicular, Royal Alberta Museum, Gov’t Center, Pedways when weather does not allow getting outside.

OPEN DOOR POLICY

Parents are always welcome to drop by for a short visit with his/her child throughout the day or to discuss any matters with staff. There is also the opportunity for a parent to phone to get feedback on their child’s day.

FUN FOR ALL

The rooms are warm, inviting and visually appealing. There are areas in the room for active play e.g. large and small block play, dramatic play and areas for quiet and individual play e.g table top activities, arts and crafts,water and sand play and a story and book corner.

GOAL SETTING

Included in our Registration Package is a Goal Setting Form, where parents set initial goals for their child e.g. sharing, learning to play with others, learning English etc. These goals are reviewed as the child moves from one age group to another. Staff make sure that they work on the individual goals either through planned programming or on an individual basis.

CAPTURING MEMORIES

We capture wonderful memories of your child’s interactions through photographs. An album is started as your child enters the program and is given to you upon graduating or leaving the center.

Parent Functions

Through our many parent functions and other events, the parents have the opportunity to socialize and get to know each other better. Every year, we celebrate Mothers and Fathers Day with a big breakfast from 7 a.m to 9 a.m. Children, parents and staff are able to relax and enjoy this time together.

We also hold a Pre-Kindergarten Graduation Celebration, and our Annual Christmas Party. Parents can also participate in other room events e.g. Valentines, Easter, Halloween parties, Field Trips and more.

Information For Parents

At It’s All About Kids, we understand that leaving your child for the very first time in daycare is a big event. This can be a stressful and upsetting situation for both parent and child. We, therefore, try to make this transition as easy as possible.

Our Director, Assistant Director and the staff realize the importance of building a confident and trusting relationship with you and your child from the very first day. We work hard to ensure that the needs of both child and parent are met.

The staff respect that the parents are the primary caregivers and we work closely together to respect your wishes. We are here to assist you in any way possible. We are flexible as long as it does not interfere with the operation of the center and that it is in the best interest of the child.

We encourage you to transition your child into the Program by starting short visits the week before the start date. This is an invaluable experience that helps you and your child settle, through a gradual process. You are able to visit with your child’s caregivers and observe some of the room routines. This also allows for further interactions with the office staff. By the time the first day arrives, you will be reassured that your child will be content and settled.

Ongoing communication between staff and parents is vital. Open and positive communication allows us to understand your child better e.g. If your child has had a restless night or a difficult start in the morning etc. it helps if you pass this information on to the caregivers so that they are aware if there is a change in behaviour. It also provides the caregivers with the opportunity to discuss your child’s day with you, your child’s overall interactions and development, or answer any questions that you may have.

The center produces a quarterly newsletter that highlights what is happening at the center e.g.changes to policies, reminders, field trips, center closures, birthdays. welcoming new families, updated information from Licensing, Capital Health etc.

Parent involvement is encouraged and we welcome any suggestions that you may have for program enhancement.
