Cochrane Early Learning Centre is a government-accredited daycare. We have been caring for the children of Cochrane for seven years with a consistent clean bill of health and no licensing non-compliances.
We offer European-style learning programs and emergent curriculum for early school aged children, preschoolers, toddlers, and infants, in addition to summer day camps for school children. Choose from permanent full-time, part-time or drop-in care. We accept government subsidy.
We support children’s individual needs, such as catering to health and dietary needs. Children receive nutritious, wholesome food, including breakfast, lunch, and an afternoon snack, with additional morning snacks and milk for infants. Parents receive discounts and special offers at our onsite coffee shop, Déjà Brew.
Our team members are educated in childcare, police-checked, and trained in food safety and first aid. They complete regular development assessments of children to customize support and highlight potential issues. We work with the Cochrane Language & Learning Centre for fully-funded speech therapy programs.
Our bright, spacious centres offer a range of play and learning stations. Through collaborative and engaging activities, children study early math, reading, writing, early science and languages. Other activities range from music and sports to arts and crafts. We have two outside play areas plus an eco-garden and a large indoor playroom.
We organize fun events, dress-up days, and seasonal arts and crafts. We also have special visitors such as animal friends, musicians, and community helpers like police and fire officers. In addition, parents can tour the centres and meet team members at our regular open houses.
The mission of the Cochrane Early Learning Centre is to be a caring community where children can develop their physical, emotional, social, and intellectual needs in a loving, supportive, safe and educational environment that benefits the child, the family, and the childcare team members.
