Our Programs: Daycare and Out-of-School Care in Edmonton

At Between Friends Daycare, we know the important of fostering a safe and fun learning environment. Kids learn best when they’re happy, playing, exploring and nutritionally satisfied. At our daycare and out-of-school care programs, Edmonton children can enjoy a diverse range of programs that will capture their imagination. This includes outdoor play, multicultural learning, literature, art, our “letter of the week” and more. In the summer, we offer special programs and field trips, and during the school year, we have morning and afternoon care for when they’re not in class. In order to keep kids stimulated, we change our program every week. All of our programs include:

Arts and crafts
Fine motor activities
Dramatic play
Gross motor activities
Sand and water play
Outdoor play
