Kepler Academy at Westlink is a fully licenced and accredited child care centre located in west Edmonton, on Mayfield Road and 107 Avenue. Westlink is nestled on the front side of the Service Canada building, accessed by a private entrance door. Inside the centre are eight rooms, each purposefully constructed to create an enriched learning environment. Westlink’s floor-to-ceiling windows and large nature-inspired outdoor play space that create a bright and modern feel. It is Kepler Academy’s flagship centre and has many founding families enjoying their third year of their Kepler journey. The centre has a capacity for up to 90 children.
Through our Exploratory Education approach, Westlink 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
Hi, my name is Amy Allaby the Director at Kepler Academy Westlink. At an early age, I studied the Royal Conservatory of Music program obtaining my Gr. 8 Diploma for music/theory at the age of 16. As a young adult, I joined ARMTA (Alberta Registered Music Teachers Association) opening my own piano business teaching young children, while also working as a nanny. Later I incorporated my two loves music and children by operating an accredited Reggio based Dayhome while teaching music lessons in the evening.
During those 10 years I had the opportunity to work with Genesis (100 Voices program), ARQUE, AHS Early Literacy Programs, Parent Link, C.O.W bus (Classroom on Wheels), Little Warriors training, RESBITE care and was a certified mentor to other providers. I achieved my Early Learning and Childcare Diploma from Bow Valley College and recently completed my FLIGHT curriculum course at MacEwan University while working as a Program Supervisor for the YMCA. My husband and I have three wonderful children of our own. We enjoy the outdoors including activities such as camping, biking, swimming and playing soccer.
With over 16 years of experience, I am committed to giving inclusively all children and families a place where they are respected and cherished. A learning environment that offers safety, play and a curriculum-based learning opportunity with skilled educators to guide them. I am excited to be apart of the team at Kepler Academy that partners along with families, as we care and mentor their children to reach their full potential.
