Kepler Academy at College Plaza is a fully licensed child care centre, conveniently located across from the University of Alberta and the Stollery Children’s Hospital. The centre is nestled on the second floor of the College Plaza Professional Building and boasts reserved drop-off and pick-up parking spaces inside the parkade. It has ten rooms, each purposefully constructed to create an enriched learning environment, with a modern and bright design and feel. A private, all-natural outdoor play space was built on the second level, for the children to explore year-round, which is accessible exclusively through the centre. College Plaza has a capacity for up to 125 children.
Through our Exploratory Education approach, Kepler Academy College Plaza 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: infants (Stargazers), toddlers (Explorers), preschoolers/pre-kindergarten (Navigators), kindergarteners (Pioneers) and grades 1 – 6 (The Stellar Program). Our kinder-care program offers care before and/or after kindergarten classes, as well as full-day care, following our Pioneer Curriculum. Please inquire with our 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.
