Early Learning and Child Care Centre | Bissell Centre

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.

Opening Date To Be Determined


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.


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

We are currently receiving enquiries to the program. Once the centre is ready to receive applications, submitted enquiries will be contacted with opportunity to submit an application. Please note, we are not currently responding to Enquiry submissions.”.
