Kepler Academy at Sun Life Place is a fully licenced child care centre, conveniently located on the mezzanine level of the Sun Life Place office building in Edmonton’s downtown core. The centre is located adjacent of 9Triple8 and The Citadel, with ample drop-off and pick-up temporary parking. It has seven rooms, each purposefully constructed to create an enriched learning environment, with a modern and bright design and feel. It boasts a beautiful rooftop outdoor play space, built with all-natural elements from Bienenstock Natural Playgrounds, with trees and planter boxes for children to play, explore and grow various plants in warmer months. The centre has a capacity for up to 89 children.
Through our Exploratory Education approach, Sun Life offers full-time educational child care and early learning for children 16 weeks to 6 years of age: infants (Stargazers), toddlers (Explorers), preschoolers/pre-kindergarten (Navigators) and kindergarteners (Pioneers). Our kinder-care program offers care before and/or after kindergarten classes, as well as full-day care, following our Pioneer Curriculum. Transportation to kindergarten programs is offered based on demand. Please inquire with the Centre Director for more information.
Kepler Academy recruits only the most qualified and experienced staff that are fully licenced and undergo regular training to ensure the very best care for your child.
