Welcome to the Banff Child Care Centre
Serving families with early education and child care for over 40 years. We are an accredited, non-profit society whose mission is to serve our community. We appreciate generous support in Banff and many collaborations within the Bow Valley that enable us to offer creative and fun early education backed by a strong organization.
Our mission is to work with families and our community to provide quality child care and opportunities for personal growth in a nurturing atmosphere of activity and fun!
The Banff Child Care Centre was among the first child care programs accredited by the province of Alberta.
Accreditation is a rigorous quality process of continuously maintaining very high standards. We are also regularly inspected by Alberta Human Services for licensing standards and Alberta Health for health and safety quality assurance.
We offer programming Monday – Friday 7:30 AM – 6:00 PM in six developmentally appropriate age group rooms and two safe and natural outdoor place spaces.
Child Care to Fit Your Family
The Day Care Society of Banff has Puzzles under its umbrella.
Puzzles was one of the first 22 Alberta Early Learning and Child Care sites in the Province of Alberta. We are an accredited program serving families of the Bow Valley with children 1 through 5 years of age. Accreditation is a rigorous quality process of continuously maintaining very high standards. We are also regularly inspected by Alberta Children’s Services for licensing standards and Alberta Health for health and safety quality assurance.
Puzzles provides a warm, nurturing environment for children’s discovery and development. We implement the Alberta Early Childhood Framework in guiding our program to fit the needs and interests of our children. The FLIGHT framework “frames curriculum meaning making that highlights the relationships and curriculum decision shaping responsive practices in early learning and child care communities” (FLIGHT, pg.12, 2014) https://flightframework.ca/
Puzzles recognizes the image of a child as a ‘Mighty Learner’. Our responsive environment is inclusive and captures all children’s dispositions to learn. Puzzles is a place of vitality, providing access, support and participation. A practice of relationships with family, community, and educators makes meaning for our early learning citizens.
Puzzles is partnered with Grit-ASaP;
An Inclusive Framework Supporting Social and Emotional Learning in the Early years using the The Pyramid Model
