Every child deserves a great start. At Community Options, we do just that by providing quality childcare and inclusive supports to children and their families within the greater Edmonton area. Community Options believes in offering children and families an inclusive experience to develop their full potential within in their community, regardless of their abilities, while positively impacting lifelong learning and enriching quality of life. For over 40 years, we have provided services in the Edmonton and surrounding area, and we truly believe that the programs we provide positively impact the future of the children and their families.
Community Options is a Society that consists of five branches. Each works toward supporting the diverse needs of children and families through inclusive early childhood education and community initiatives. These branches are: our Early Learning and Childcare Centre, Out of School Care, Preschool, Family and Community Support and Community Preschool Education Program, we make a positive impact on over 280 families.
The largest branch within our society is our Community Preschool Education Program, which is currently supporting 180 children and families, within Edmonton and surrounding area. Using a multi-disciplinary team, the aim of our Community Preschool Education Program, is to promote maximum skill development of children with diagnosed special needs, within their community setting, whether it be a preschool or a daycare of the parent’s choosing.
Community Options also believes in giving back to the community. Our community initiatives, such as our Annual Festive Meal, neighborhood table, free family movie nights, and free tax preparation clinics for low income families within the Inglewood community, help build on our belief that strong communities build strong families.
With parent and community involvement, the Society ensures that its programs are responding to the unique needs and circumstances of our children and families by providing flexible and meaningful services.
