Screening and Monitoring
All day home operators providing child care through Kids@ Churchill Park have been carefully screened before being approved. This includes a police clearance check, child welfare intervention background checks, medical clearance, personal reference checks, questionnaires and a full home safety check.
All day home providers are required to complete an approved Child Care First Aid course, obtain a minimum Child Development Assistant Certificate (formally Level One) in Early Childhood Education and outline an emergency plan and evacuation map.
Once a provider’s day home has been approved by Churchill Park, it becomes part of a thorough and ongoing monitoring program intended to ensure and improve upon the quality of care provided. Churchill Park Day Home Consultants or Managers visit all day home operators at least once a month to complete monitoring and reports, and to share resources, ideas and information with the child care provider. Additional support visits are provided when a need is identified or if a parent has a concern.

"One of the best early childhood development centers in Calgary. Top of the line facility, along with caring and professional staff."
"My son went to more than 3 different daycares in the past. To be honest, this is the first time I feel comfortable and truly happy that he goes to a daycare! The place is very clean, organized, and safe for the kids. I like how they keep the parents updated of everything through the phone app everyday. They let the kids explore and learn through the daily indoor and outdoor activities."
