Thornhill Child Care - Ogden Centre is a brand-new centre located in Ogden Hub 29. Our Centre accommodates children from 12 months to 6 years of age and has a capacity for 88 children. The centre has partnered with The Mustard Seed to provide supports to the building residents and the Ogden and surrounding communities.
We offer competitive rates, access to the Affordability Grant and accept child care subsidy. We are an inclusive environment, and support early intervention and diverse learning needs with access to Program Unit Funding and Mild/Moderate funding from Alberta Education.
Our lunches and morning and afternoon snacks are made in-house. 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.
Our centre features a rooftop playground, providing a unique and engaging outdoor space for children to play and explore while enjoying the fresh air. Additionally, the spacious George Moss park is across the street, offering an open area for various activities and games. This combination of a rooftop playground and a front field ensures that children have diverse opportunities for outdoor play, promoting physical activity and social interaction in a safe and natural environment.
Our dedicated Early Childhood Educators co-create curriculum with the children to plan programs that are designed to help children grow physically, intellectually, socially and emotionally through spontaneous involvement with their environment, relationships with each other, their families and the larger community. Using Flight: An Early Learning and Child Care Curriculum Framework for Alberta, as our guide, the Educators use observation and reflection to understand where the children are in development and seek to nurture that learning further. More information on the Flight Framework can be found at https://flightframework.ca/
Parent involvement is key in creating and maintaining a quality program and Thornhill Child Care sees itself as community-based program. We encourage parent involvement and practice an open-door policy. Parents are welcome to participate in the program and to join our Board of Directors to have an impact on the future direction.
