Calgary and Region Family Day Homes
Calgary & Region Family Dayhome Agency Inc. is a licensed and accredited family-based child care agency which has been providing approved and monitored child care services to children and families throughout Calgary and area since 1984.
Our mission is to provide safe, nurturing environments fostering strong relationships between children and educators. We believe that when the adults in a child’s life are happy, caring, capable, resilient, and responsible, that a child has an immeasurable advantage in also becoming a happy, caring, capable resilient and responsible adult.
As an agency we monitor and support our contracted Educators as they run their home based child care business. With monthly in home visits our trained childcare Consultants are able to support and guide Educators in ensuring quality care for the families registered with our agency.
Our Agency recruits, approves, trains, supports and monitors many approved family Dayhomes in Calgary and surrounding areas.
