To book a tour
Kepler Academy is constructing a beautiful centre in South Edmonton that is set to open September 2020. It is located at 10906 30 Avenue SW in the Cavanagh area. It is conveniently located off Ellerslie Road, accessed by 1030 Avenue or 30 Avenue, passing by major businesses in the area.
The centre has a beautiful modern design throughout, with 13 classrooms designed and built to create an enriched and optimal learning environment, inviting children to explore. Our centre offers a nature-inspired playspace to compliment the inside of the centre. We recruit only the most qualified and experienced staff, that are fully licenced and undergo regular training to ensure the very best care for your child. We also provide all snacks and meals, that are made on site by our chef to ensure well balanced nutrition throughout the day.
Through our Exploratory Education approach, Kepler Academy offers full-time educational child care and early learning for children 16 weeks to 6 years of age, as well as out-of-school care for 6 to 12 years. We follow a guided curriculum for all ages and programs, allowing your child to advance in several critical areas. Read more about our curriculum and collaborative approach here.
For the 2020 – 2021 school year, Kepler Academy will be providing transportation to select elementary schools nearby. Please inquire for more information.
Meet the Director
My name is Karen Heroux, and I am a Child Development Supervisor with 25 years’ experience in the field. My experience has included running a day home while my 2 sons were young, as well as working with multiple age groups in group childcare. I started leading teams 14 years ago, and truly found my passion. I enjoy mentoring and coaching early childhood educators to be able to enhance the lives of a child in our programs through developmentally appropriate activities and interactions. The relationships that we build with families are of the utmost importance, and I am a believer in facilitating those relationships throughout our practice. Professional Development is a great way for us to continually enhance our skills, and I am always watching for a new conference or workshop to attend for myself and my team.
I have been involved in different Community Leagues within Edmonton over the years, as a Youth Soccer Director and as a Memberships Director. I was an active member of the Girl Guides of Canada for over 20 years, as well as a volunteer/contributor to Santa’s Anonymous, Kids Help Phone, and Little Warriors. I believe in giving back to the community in which we live and work, and am excited to make that a priority with this new position.
In my spare time, I enjoy quality friends and family time with hiking, gardening, camping, and some golf when I get the chance. Life is short! Let’s live it and explore!
