Kepler Academy Sturgeon is located on the third floor of the Sturgeon Medical Building, conveniently accessible from St. Albert Trail. It has a beautiful modern design throughout, with 10 classrooms built to create an enriched and optimal learning environment. Our centre offers a nature-inspired play space, inviting children to explore outdoors in all seasons. We also provide a full menu of nutritious snacks and meals, to ensure children are fuelled 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 and transportation for 6 to 12 years. We follow a guided curriculum for all ages, allowing your child to advance in several critical areas. Kepler recruits qualified and experienced staff, that are fully certified and undergo regular training to ensure the very best care for your child.
Meet the Director
Lindsay Taylor is Kepler Academy Sturgeon’s Centre Director. She has been with our team for three years. Her approach to childcare is influenced heavily by Reggio Philosophy. Lindsay earned her background in Early Childhood Education through Lakeland College. Lindsay has traveled abroad to complete the International Study Course held in Reggio Emilia, the city in Italy where the philosophy originated.
Born and raised in Nova Scotia, she has fond memories of play-based, hands-on learning, and is a huge advocate for children’s rights and respect for each child. She brings this philosophy to her centre each day – helping children to realize and express that they are more capable than they may think. “While we act as children’s guides in a foreign land, they translate the world back to us. With fresh eyes, they reveal the things we have grown accustomed to or have missed. Young children live in the moment, and if we follow them, they take us there too.” (Dr. Deborah MacNamara)
