A Few Words About Our Centre
We opened our doors at University Tenderloving Daycare & OSC in the fall of 2015 to fill in the space of much needed quality childcare. We received full accreditation from AELCS in 2016. University Tenderloving Daycare & OSC is conveniently located in McKernan neighbourhood. In addition to catering to McKernan, Belgravia and Parkallen neighbourhoods we are also a good option for the parents who work at the University of Alberta and/or commute to Downtown. We are only a block East of McKernan/Belgravia station on LRT on 76 Avenue. Our is a large spacious centre that has separate rooms with ample space for different age groups of children. We have a well-equipped backyard and we are just across the street for McKernan waterpark (for summer fun). At University Tenderloving Daycare & OSC, your children will enjoy a safe and nourishing place to learn and play with their friend. In addition to our fun environment, we also place high importance on helping children develop healthy eating habits by providing them with nutritious meal and snack options, prepared fresh daily by our on-site cook. Since we opened our doors, we have received excellent support from parents and community at large. We believe that children are much smarter than what we give them credit for their success as there exist inherent potential in each individual, therefore, we encourage children to explore their interest by providing positive learning opportunities. We let the children to achieve their milestones at their own pace. We celebrate their success as our success and not measure it by distributing ‘badges’.
Some children are eligible for subsidies that are provided by the Government of Alberta. The amount of subsidy is determined by the household income in the previous year. Please refer to the Alberta Human Services website for details.

When educators notice children’s interest in exploring nature, people, places, and objects as well as print, stories, numbers, shapes, and patterns, and when they name the connections between these experiences and the holistic goals and children’s dispositions to learn, they are co-constructing early learning curriculum with young children and making the curriculum visible to others.
