Child Care In Downtown Edmonton
Sun Life Place Kepler Academy
September 17 & 24, 2020
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.
Meet the Director
Hello Sun Life Families! I am Aia Hughes, the Sun Life Place Centre director. I have worked with children, youth and families since high school in a variety of settings including managing daycare and out of school centres, worked as an Educational Aid in elementary schools, managed a Parent Link Centre and developing and delivering child and youth programming on a municipal level. As a certified Triple P Practictioner, I have experience helping families manage difficult behaviours, discover their unique strengths and build a more positive family unit. I completed my Diploma in Early Childhood Education at Red Deer College and am currently working towards a Bachelor’s of Professional Arts in Human Services through Athabasca University.
My goal is to support clients and staff I work alongside, ensuring health, safety and well-being comes first and to cultivate everyone’s unique assets to help enhance the program’s overall successes. Children are naturally curious and I believe early childhood is the most important period to provide guidance to them and instil a love of learning for life.
I have 3 children ages 15, 23 and 24 and have a dog and 2 cats. I grew up in Edmonton and am currently moving back home! I am an avid runner and proud to have completed my first Ultra Marathon (54kms) September 2019.
To schedule a visit, or if you have any questions about this academy, we’d love to hear from you!
