Are you looking for dependable early learning services? At Glengarry Child Care Society in Edmonton, our out-of-school care and early learning programs follow FLIGHT: Alberta’s Early Learning and Care Framework, which provides the basis for our program philosophy. Our 8800 square-foot early learning facility provides care for up to 117 children, ages birth to 12 years, in 6 playrooms that are separated by age. We believe children are mighty learners and citizens, fully capable of making choices and decisions about their environment and their play experiences, becoming aware of what their bodies can do and taking risks, all of which create the foundation for learning and growing up to be confident, capable adults. Our educators take on the role of co-learners, co-researchers and co-imaginers of possibilities, allowing the children to take the lead, and become part of the children’s play experience.
We provide morning and afternoon snacks plus a hot lunch daily. Our cook makes meals that are healthy, home-cooked and delicious! We have 4 menus that rotate on a weekly basis and change in the spring and the fall to provide variety. As much as possible, we focus on making our menu items from scratch, using minimal pre-packaged foods.
Below is a sample menu:
Plain yogurt with berries
Egg and cheese bread sandwich
Homemade beef noodle soup
Meatballs and gravy
Perogies and kubasa
Homemade vegetable soup
Homemade pita chips
Fresh veggie sticks and dip
Frozen yogurt cones
Blueberry lentil muffins
