Kepler Academy College Plaza is a fully licensed child care centre, conveniently located across from the University of Alberta, University Hospital and the Stollery Children’s Hospital. The centre has reserved drop-off and pick-up parking spaces for parents in the parkade of the building. Ten modern, bright classrooms offer an enriched early learning environment. Our centre offers a private, nature-inspired outdoor play space built on the second level, inviting children to explore outdoors in all seasons. We provide a full menu of nutritious snacks and meals, to ensure children are fuelled throughout the day.
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. We follow a guided curriculum for our infant, toddler, preschool and kinder-care programs, allowing your child to advance in several critical developmental areas. Kepler recruits qualified and experienced staff, that are fully certified and undergo regular training to ensure the very best care for your child. Our centre proudly partners with the Stollery Children’s Hospital Foundation to provide Sibling Care Services. Contact us today to learn more!
