We recognize that child care and early education are a big investment for families and for public support.
Our High Quality & Accreditation
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 Albert Health for health and safety quality assurance.
Scope of our Services
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.

Return on Quality Investment
We recognize that child care and early education are a big investment for families and for public support. Studies show that for every dollar invested in early education, seven dollars are saved by society before children complete high school. The value of quality early education for children and peace of mind for parents pays off many times over in the preschool years and far beyond.
How We Keep Our Tuition Rates Competitive
Families have valuable partners in supporting the investment in early education. The Town of Banff provides our facility as a service to families. The province of Alberta supports accredited programs with a wage top-up to assist in attracting and retaining quality staff. The province also supports child care tuition assistance for qualifying families. At The Banff Child Care Centre, we manage our finances carefully, serving as careful stewards of the funds entrusted in us to deliver innovative learning and quality programming.
Our Spirit of Collaboration
We engage actively in the Banff community as well as in early childhood organizations to both contribute and to learn. We seek grants and partner with philanthropic organizations and talented community members to support creative experiences for children, new equipment and learning materials and ongoing professional development for our staff.
