Child Care Centre

MacEwan University's Early Learning at MacEwan (ELM) is a rich, inclusive environment for children aged 19 months through six years. Qualified early childhood educators work closely with families ensuring a warm, healthy, safe environment for play, care, learning and development. Knowledgeable educators engage children and their families in designing an integrated curriculum, focused on broad holistic goals for young children's learning. Responsive educators create daily experiences and routines that promote play, wellbeing, early literacies, and caring relationships. The indoor and outdoor environments are purposefully designed to stimulate exploration, curiosity, creativity and wonder. The centre provides educational research and teaching support to the MacEwan Early Learning and Child Care Program. MacEwan students are actively engaged with the children during each term.

The centre is open year-round with the exception of a closure from December 25 to January 1, and the last week of July, first week of August. For more information, visit Note – Some families may qualify for Government of Alberta subsidies – more information is available at
