Edmonton Northwest Early Learning & Child Care Centre
Established in 1976, we are a leading educational childcare centre for children from 1 to 6 years old, located in the heart of Edmonton's Inglewood community. Our childcare centre's philosophy is rooted in the idea that all children are active citizens who deserve the right to engage and explore their environment in meaningful ways. Our Centre is accredited and works with an Alberta Curriculum Framework pedagogical leader to ensure the highest quality childcare is a priority for all children in our care.
Childcare Programming & Philosophy
Our learning environments are thoughtfully designed to inspire inquiry and socialization among our children. There are many opportunities for them to learn and to explore various indoor and outdoor settings. Our inclusive practices honour children of all abilities, respecting them all as strong and capable members of our program.
Our Centre provides 2 healthy snacks and a lunch based on the new Canadian Food Guide. Active living and a healthy lifestyle are promoted both with our educators and the children they nurture through play and physical activity.
Family Involvement & Community Partnerships
Families are the first and most informed educator in a child's life. Family involvement creates a seamless network of care that supports a child’s growth and learning at home and in our childcare.
Edmonton Northwest Early Learning and Child Care Centre supports the family with regular programming and celebrations. These events engage not only the child but also the family in building a strong community as we discover and explore together.
Partnerships with families are supported by regular communication through daily conversations, newsletters, parent committees, and volunteer opportunities.
