Finding Daycare for Baby, Toddlers and our Before & After School Programs in Airdrie

We accept children of all ages at the Airdrie Daycare Center. We have spots for babies, toddlers, older children and a before and after school program. For school-age children and Kindergarten we do offer a busing service to certain schools. Our bus will ensure your child gets to their school and is picked up and dropped off at the daycare again where he/she will play until you pick them up!

Parents must notify the daycare if their child will not be requiring transportation either to or from school that day. Please note that our bus leaves starting at 7:30 a.m. If your child is not at the daycare before their bus leaves you will be responsible for getting them to school that day.

If your child needs pick-up only from school, please call the daycare by 10 a.m. so we can relay the message to the bus driver. If your child becomes ill or leaves school early, please contact the daycare asap so we know not to look for your child after school.

We currently have available:

2   spots: 6 weeks – 6 years (Meadowbrook Location)

4 spots :6 weeks -11 years (Range road Location)
