ABOUT WESTLOCK CHILD CARE SOCIETY

Executive Director's Welcome,


Hello!

 

Welcome to the Westlock Child Care Society. Our knowledgeable and qualified staff are willing to answer any questions regarding registration, subsidy, and programming. We can also assist with developmental screening, referrals, and questions about child development.

 

In Westlock, we offer day care, day homes, and out-of-school care programming. For grade school students, there is a summer program with field trips to various locations! In Athabasca, we offer a day home program. All our programs are licensed and accredited with the Government of Alberta.

 

Please, give us a call to arrange a visit!  We look forward to seeing you!

 

Sincerely,



Christine Villeneuve, BA
​Executive Director

Our Philosophy

Our philosophy is to provide child care services which support and strengthen the parental role, not supplant it. 

 

The program should encourage parents in fulfillment of the parental responsibilities, enhance their relationships with their children, and coordinate the child’s experiences between his/her family and the child care program. 

 

Another essential aspect of the program should include careful planning to meet the developmental needs of the children. 

Our History

The Westlock Child Care Society was formed in 1980, and was registered as a non-profit organization under the Societies Act.

 

Originally, services included the Day Care Centre with an integrated special needs program and the Satellite Family Day Homes program. Since then, services have expanded to include Out-of-School Care programs.

 

The Day Care Centre was originally built in 1980 to commemorate Alberta’s 75th birthday. In the 1990’s, two additions were built onto the original building to meet the expanding demand for Day Care services.
