Originally established as Oliver Day Care, Glenora Child Care Society has been serving the Glenora community since 1975. All our programs are accredited through Accreditation of Early Learning and Care Services (www.aelcs.ca) and we have been recognized by the Government of Alberta as one of three Child Care Programs of Excellence for 2014.
Our preschool child care program is located in the South wing of St Vincent Elementary School and provides care for children twelve months through six years of age. We also provide supervised walking programs to and from Glenora Elementary School for children attending Kindergarten at that location.
Our before and after school care program operates at the main daycare location in the morning and at Faith Community Church in the afternoon and on non-school days. We provide walking programs for both St. Vincent and Glenora Elementary Schools. Bus transportation to and from other schools must be arranged by parents and approved by the program before care can be confirmed.
We are proud to partner with Grant McEwan University and NorQuest College to provide practicum experiences for students in their Early Learning and Child Care Programs. Each year our centre hosts up to eight students throughout their practicum terms.
