The Day Care Society of Banff was founded in 1975 to meet the growing community needs for child care and early education. We have continually grown in service to families, moving into our current building in 1995 thanks to a collaboration with the Town of Banff. We are a non-profit registered charity guided by our volunteer Board of Directors and a professional staff of 25 dedicated, talented educators and leaders.

Banff, in the heart of Banff National Park in the Canadian Rockies, is a community known for creativity and innovation where people migrate for nature, arts and the mountain lifestyle. Children grow up in Banff to appreciate a safe, healthy, dynamic community of caring people. Banff is friendly, diverse and full of life. We are pleased to incorporate the culture of Banff and Banff National Park as we learn from our natural surroundings. At the Banff Child Care Centre, we strive to both reflect our community and be a leader in education and innovation for children’s learning and positive development.

We take our mission of quality care and education very seriously. We mix in some serious fun to create a relaxed environment where children experience learning through play in many domains and grow at their own pace. Children in our program learn to be a team member with their peers, to communicate clearly, to respect themselves and others, to pursue natural curiosity, and to know the joys of learning, being friends and accomplishing new feats!
