• Hello and welcome to our new and existing families!

 

  • We are grateful to operate Belgravia and Holy Spirit programs for the summer to provide care to the Southgate area and Jan Reimer program to provide care for the South East area during summer.
  • As summer nears, we would like to take the time to inform you of our plans for the summer, as well as a few important reminders to everyone.
Summer Calendar
Please click the links below to find each program’s summer calendars. It outlines all the wonderful activities we will be doing over the next two months
Holy Spirit Maple & Aspen Summer Calendar
Holy Spirit Sapling Summer Calendar
Belgravia Summer Calendar
Jan Reimer Summer Calendar
Please keep this calendar close at hand for your reference to our daily plans and excursions. It indicates everything you will need to remember for each day.  Please remember to send a picnic lunch (nothing that requires heating) on the specified days. Picnic lunch days are going to be symbolized by a little paper bag as shown in the calendars.
We may spontaneously decide it’s a messy day or water play. Please ensure that your child has an extra set of clothing at the centre at all times. 
Your children are also required to wear hats.  It would also be helpful if your children brought a water bottle.
Please expect some changes to it as we are working on some in-house field trips with more details to come.
Our activities are limited due to Covid-19 but we will try our very best to make it fun and enjoyable for our children.

WELCOME

Edmonton Region Child Care Association is guided by a volunteer Board of Directors, who also have children in our care. The Board of Directors entrusts the Executive Director, Directors, and educators to manage the day to day operations of child care. We all attend work motivated to provide the children and families in our care with quality, innovative, safe, and most importantly, fun child care.

 

MISSION STATEMENT

“To provide a safe environment where children experience exceptional childcare and build self-esteem and positive relationships through fun and rewarding recreational activities and skill building opportunities. In collaboration with parents, school and communities, we advocate for childcare that continues to meet the diverse needs of our families.”

 

HISTORY

ERCCA, was incorporated in July 1983 under the Societies Act. Our Association is both a not for profit association and a charity.
Our association has eight locations that work together, share ideas and collaborate, with the outcome of qualify care. I am proud of the care that we are able to provide our families and always amazed on the activities our educators come up with to foster a child’s interest.
ERCCA is part of the Access, Support and Participation (ASaP) model of Social/Emotional Development. Employees are educated in supporting children, through this model, to guide our best practice and healthy development.
