OUR STORY

The name Kepler is synonymous with discovery.  From the Kepler Telescope NASA uses to discover distant planets, to the namesake Johannes Kepler, who discovered the laws of planetary motion – “Kepler” means big things.  At Kepler Academy, we use the same ambitious approach for childhood education.  We want children to reach for the stars, discover new heights and to become pioneers.  All elements of our process are purposefully designed to provide children with the skills needed for a head start in life.  From our enriched curriculum, to the staff that we hire, to the nutritional food we serve, everything has been planned with a dynamic and continuous interaction between biology and experience.

Our Team

We understand that a parent’s decision for childcare is based on trust and care. Consequently, we maintain a standard to accept only the best, brightest and most passionate centre directors. Our Executive Director, Lynn Ventura, holds a Masters Degree in Early Childhood Education and has successfully established and operated several well-known accredited daycare centres in Alberta. 

Our childcare providers undergo a substantial training and on-boarding program prior to beginning at Kepler Academies.  This includes their completion of the Brain Story Certification as granted by the Alberta Family Wellness Initiative (AFWI), nutrition training by our industry-leading nutritionist, and an in-depth technology training program by Hi Mama Technologies and our in-house experts. The leading research of the AFWI allows our educators to know what activities and actions are optimal for the developing brain, while our technology training identifies what, if any, technologies should be used as tools in the child's development.  

We also provide our team with ongoing professional and personal development opportunities to ensure they are up-to-date with the latest industry best practices and to continually better serve your child’s needs.  Our highly-qualified staff are there to teach, assist and guide your child every step of the way and look forward to the transformational journey ahead.  Visit our individual location pages to learn more about our Academy Directors. 

Kepler Academy is backed by the Next Equities team, which has a proven track record of establishing leading quality brands in numerous industries. 

THE KEPLER STANDARD

At Kepler Academy, we’ve made a commitment to research and purpose.  From our lesson planning to our meal planning and everything in-between, all aspects of our Academies have been developed using the latest leading research and with a clear purpose in mind.

For our curriculum and lesson planning, we have incorporated the findings, research, and teachings of the Alberta Family Wellness Initiative and the Center on the Developing Child at Harvard University.  With these resources, we’ve developed a curriculum focused on your child’s cognitive, emotional, mental, and physical development through exploration, creativity, and play.

For our nutrition planning, we use the services of Nutrition 101 and nationally recognized dietician, Mr. Rob Lim to develop a balanced, nutritional meal plan for your child’s growing body.

We also utilize the latest tech-enabled toys to introduce children to new aspects of our developing world (from programming, to robotics, to coding) while still focusing on hands-on learning. With our Kepler Academy app (available for download on both the Google Play and Apple App Store) parents can track their child’s progress, communicate with our staff, and much more!
