Rates & Services


Rates ...

All rates are determined by Dayhome Educators in collaboration with Little Bear Dayhome Agency.  Please contact the agency for any queries related to payments and rates.  Please note that overtime rates apply for early drop off and late pick up and are posted in educator's homes.


Deposit/Enrolment ...

Parents must provide a security deposit and a $100.00 administration and processing fee per child on the scheduled registration date. 

(* deposit amount may be adjusted with coordinator approval)


Full Time Care ...

Full time care  is defined as more than 99 hours per month.  You are paying for a childcare space each month.  Actual attendance is not a determining factor, but rather planned service hours. Please note that overtime rates apply for early drop off and late pick up.  Fees are charged monthly. Parents may be eligible for subsidy up to $614.00 per month (please contact Alberta Children’s services for full subsidy information). 


Part Time Care ...

Part time care is determined by the individual Dayhome Educator. When your child attends part time, you are paying for a childcare space at a specific rate per month.  Educators decide if they will accept children full time, part time, or a combination of both, thus, certain educators may decide not to provide part time care.  If a parent still wishes to contract with this educator, they will be expected to pay full time rates, even if the child does not require full time care.  


 Meals ...

Nutritious and delicious meals and snacks  are planned using the Canada food guide. Educators are responsible for posting menus at least one week in advance.  Rates include breakfast (if requested and children are at the day home before 8:15 am), lunch and two snacks. Parents may opt to provide bagged lunches or snacks if they wish. If a child requires certain dietary accommodations parents are required to supply food and Dayhome Educators will not be expected to reduce fees.  


Activities ...

Manipulatives, Blocks, Music, Literature areas, and outdoor play, Art and Dramatic play, Sand/ Water, Cooking, Math, and Science  are just a few of the fun daily activities your child will engage in at their Little Bear contracted day home!  Each day includes child-centered activities that are planned and organized by the educator, indoor and outdoor activities, group and individual play, and active and quiet periods. Parents can view daily schedules posted at Little Bear day homes.


Hours ...

Hours vary with each Dayhome Educator. Full details are available by contacting
