Our Program

Earlybird Childcare Centre embraces a philosophy of play-based learning through an emergent curriculum approach.

In relationship with children, their families, and the surrounding community, early childhood educators carefully plan for structured play and learning experiences, unstructured play periods, and an inclusive environment designed for play, exploration, and learning opportunities to meet the physical, social, intellectual, creative and emotional well-being of the children in the program.

Earlybird Childcare Centre uses Flight, Alberta’s Early Learning and Care Framework to guide our practices.


We offer affordable full time, part time and drop in child care. Learn more about our fees.
