Recognized for Excellence by AELCS

Acorns to Oaktrees Childcare Centre not only offers fully licensed daycare services in Calgary, but our centre also meets the standards of excellence of the Alberta Association for the Accreditation of Early Learning and Care Services (AELCS). An AELCS accreditation acts as a guide to parents when seeking assurance they are choosing childcare services that meet these 6 required Alberta Child Care Accreditation Standards:

  • Positive, supportive relationships and enriched physical and emotional environments foster children’s well-being and development.
  • Program planning and practices support every child’s optimal development in an inclusive early learning and care environment that incorporates the value and importance of play.
  • Relationships with families are supportive and respectful.
  • Child care programs create a supportive work environment to maintain a qualified team of child care professionals and assist them in providing high-quality child care services through its philosophy, policies, procedures, and practices.
  • Child care programs collaborate with community organizations and services to respond to the needs of children and families they serve.
  • Continuous quality improvement is demonstrated through ongoing self-monitoring and evaluation processes.

Continuing Improvement of Services

A voluntary program, the AELCS accreditation process is ongoing with the goal of continually enhancing the quality of services that member centres provide for children from birth to 12 years of age. After the initial accreditation, Acorns to Oaktrees Childcare Centre undergoes annual reviews and status verification visits to maintain our continuing accreditation. All members of our staff are involved in professional self-evaluation activities that reflect current research and leading practices in delivering programs that support a child’s intellectual, social and emotional development.
