Bissell Centre is one of 22 Early Learning and Child Care (ELCC) Centres in Alberta. Our program will provide child care for children aged 0 to 6 years with maximum fees of $25 per day.
 

Program Overview

To be selected as an Early Learning and Child Care Centre, Bissell Centre was tasked with making improvements that go above and beyond other child care programs. The program uses an evidence-based child care curriculum framework* [PDF] that was developed by early learning and child care educators, early childhood academics, government, and professionals working in related fields.

The ELCC program is designed to foster improved early childhood development outcomes so your child can get the best possible start to life.
 

Applications

Operation dates for our new program are still to be determined. With the support of Capital Region Housing, the relocation and expansion of our current program will make it possible for us to offer:

  • More child care spaces
  • Capped parent fees at $25/day care
  • Inclusive supports for children with diverse needs
  • Part-time and Full-time child care hours

Space in our Early Learning and Child Care Centres will be limited. To inquire about enrolling your child in our program, please fill out the form below. You will be contacted when we begin taking applications.
