Welcome to Risikat’s Approved Dayhome

Risikat, in partnership with the Agency, operates an Approved Family Dayhome and strives to provide quality early childcare and education to children.

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.

Q Is care available evening and weekends?

Yes! We have day homes that provide early morning, evening, weekend and even overnight care.

Contact us for details.

Q When should I start looking for a day home? Are there waitlists?

Family day homes generally differ from center-based care when it comes to waitlists.

We recommend that you call and start looking for care 2-3 months prior to your desired start date (although we also have great success in finding care that needs to start right away).

Peak busy times are usually September and January so if you need care to start in one of these months you may want to call 3-4 months in advance if you can.

Q How much does childcare cost per month?

Each educator sets their own rates. Average costs are:

Full Time: $800-990/month
Part Time: $400-$600 (p/t is usually 2 days a week)
Daily: $30-$50/day
Before and After School Care: $400-600*

*Generally includes one PD day a month and full time fees over the summer
