How Children Learn With Us

  • Children have natural curiosity and learn by exploring, problem solving and exposure to creative materials.
  • Children learn through flexible, rich environments that offer discovery experiences in safe surroundings.
  • Children learn through a play based emergent curriculum that blends developmentally appropriate planned experiences with interests and questions generated by the children themselves and explored with friends.
  • Children who thrive on rich experiences from ages 1-5 are well prepared for future academics and life success!!

What Families Say

Thank you for all the love and care! We are moving out of town and will miss you all immensely!

When we moved to Banff we were concerned about finding childcare to replace the program we liked before. At the Banff Child Care Centre we have found a great learning program, wonderful food included and all at a tuition less than we were paying before! Thanks!

Living in Banff National Park, we are so pleased that you engage the children in so much outdoor play and exercise during their time with you. We like that they run and play as we did when we were kids!

My son says he will only eat eggs at school and that if I learn how to make them like they do, he would eat them at home! Do you have a recipe to share?

Thank you for all you have done for our children in our six years as part of the Banff Child Care Centre! You have supported us every day as our children have grown so much in your care and we will always remember the good times with all of you!

We love the way you look at each child as an individual and appreciate their strengths! Thank you to all your staff for making great experiences for our children!

Your yummy and nutritious food program really takes the stress off our family in the evenings. I know that my child has eaten a healthy lunch and two great snacks during the day and that if we have a simpler dinner, she will have had a very healthy day!
