Child Care Centre now Accredited

An excited staff at the Three Hills Child Care Centre was awarded accreditation on January 14, 2011.
Accreditation is a voluntary process which symbolizes quality. To receive this title, management, staff and parents of children attending the child care centre were involved in a comprehensive and time consuming process to demonstrate the program's high standard of care the facility provides to the children and families of the community.
This means the care centre will not only be monitored by Alberta Licensing Authorities but also by the Alberta Association for the Accreditation of Early Learning and Care Services.
Licensed capacity is 38 children, ages 12 months to kindergarten. Operating out of the Three Hills School is the licensed School Age program, which is pre-accredited, and offers care to 20 children, kindergarten to grade six.
The outdoor play space at the Three Hills Child Care Centre is being developed as an all natural playground. Brandi Hoszouski, Program Director, has applied for grants, and done some fundraising to help with the cost. Donations of native plants, fallen logs, mulch, and soil, are more than welcome.
