Our educators are professional childcare providers. Our goal is to provide your child with a clean, safe, comfortable environment where they can play and learn with guidance and loving care while you are at work or attending school.
Dayhome Educators are all rigorously screened. Orientation and training are provided. As a contracted agency, all Alberta Children’s ministry standards must be met - this means that your child is in a regulated home that is monitored regularly and offered many support services private day homes may not be able to access.
Little Bear Dayhome Agency remained an accredited childcare agency until the Accreditation program was discontinued in 2020. We continue to strive to attain this higher standard of care. This involves being accountable to supervisory bodies and ensuring our dayhomes exceed licensing standards.
