Looking for Childcare

Choosing childcare is a critically important decision for parents. Knowing how to find a safe, nurturing, and engaging center-based or home-based program can be overwhelming for families. 

The Alberta Government has created a website and guide to help parents in their search for the childcare that best meets their family's needs: 

  • Types of child care
  • A guide to choosing childcare
  • Children needing extra support
  • Help with child care fees
