Play is work to a child. The goal at McLeod Community Early Learning and Child Care Centre is to support children in this very important mission! Their Reggio-inspired classrooms offer children the space, environment and materials they need to explore, experiment and make sense of their world. The staff works with the families to ensure the educational experiences are ideal to help children learn, grow and develop as people, while nurturing their faith in a warm, supportive environment.
McLeod Community Early Learning and Child Care Centre is a program of the Steele Heights Baptist Church, offering Christian Daycare, Preschool and Out of School care programs. The experienced staff create a supportive and fun setting and students are encouraged to explore their environment, community and creativity. Class sizes are kept small to ensure each child receives plenty of individual attention, and to help them build strong relationships with staff and peers.
The Early Learning Daycare program runs Monday through Friday starting at 6:45 am and continuing to 6 pm. Programming is offered for children ages 19 months to 4.5 years.
The Promise Preschool program for 3 and 4 year olds is offered Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, September to June. The Morning class runs from 9 am to 11:30 am, and a 12:30 pm to 3 pm Afternoon class will be added when the Morning class is full. Promise Preschool includes daily free play, circle time, gym time, outdoor activities, crafts and more. Each week offers a new theme and Bible stories are taught throughout the year.
The Out of School Care program is offered for students in Kindergarten through Grade 6. The program runs Monday through Friday, before and after school starting at 6:45 am and continuing until 6:00 pm. Morning and afternoon Kindergarten is also offered when children are not at school, with lunch provided.
All three programs operate out of the Steele Heights Baptist Church building, which includes classroom facilities and a gymnasium! It’s also across the street from McLeod School’s playground which offers an ideal space for plenty of outdoor play and activities. Programs are licensed by Alberta Children’s and Family Services, and the Out of School Care program is accredited by the Alberta Association for the Accreditation of Early Learning and Care Services. Tours are offered by appointment and registration is now open for all programs!
