Thornhill Child Care – Lumino Centre

Address: #200 5717 2nd Street SW

Hours of Operation: 6:30 AM to 6:00 PM 

Our Early Learning and Child Care program is located in the Lumino building in the community of Manchester and is just one block east of Chinook Centre.  We accommodate children from infants through to age 6. 

Our centre is participating in the Alberta government’s Early Learning and Child Care pilot program, therefore, our fees are capped at $25.00 per day with the monthly rate being $525.00 per space, regardless of the age of the child or economic status.  Families are eligible to apply for Child Care Subsidy.

Our dedicated Early Childhood Educators co-plan curriculum with the children to create programs that are designed to help children grow physically, intellectually, socially and emotionally through spontaneous involvement with their environment. This curriculum model is Play, Participation and Possibilities: An Early Learning and Child Care Curriculum Framework for Alberta. As an Early Learning and Child Care program it is our mandate to implement this model in our program. More information on the framework can be found at http://childcareframework.com.   We also offer a weekly music program for the children to participate in.

Families are encouraged to spend time in the program and are often invited to join their child for lunch, for parent education workshops and networking evenings, and for special events. 

We offer in-house nutritious, homemade lunches as well as a morning and afternoon snacks. Our meals are planned in accordance with the Canada Food Guide so your child gets 2/3 of their daily nutritional needs to be their best throughout the day.

Thornhill Child Care – Lumino Centre is an inclusive program which supports early intervention needs on site and can access Program Unit Funding through Alberta Education.
