We are in need of educators in West, South and North Lethbridge as well as surrounding communities.
Who We Are ...
Little Bear Dayhome Agency is an Agency contracted with the Government of Alberta Child and Family Services to provide family day home services to Lethbridge and the surrounding communities. We are an inclusive program (open to children of all abilities) and strive to offer support for our educators and quality care for our enrolled children.
The agency locates and enrols all the children, however, the educator can choose to not provide service for a specific person, and has the option of locating their own clients as well. All children in your day home must be enrolled through Little Bear. Subsidy is available for parents who qualify. We offer references as well.
