We are now
An emphasis on the outdoors
Our students spend a good part of their experience outdoors, exploring our 6 acres of land. We also have an indoor movement space with routinely disinfected activity equipment as well as a physical literacy development program.
Science and exploration activities
Professional educators with a knack for making exploration fun and entertaining! All presentations are done with physical distancing and sanitization in mind.
Summer childcare programming
led by grace and courtesy.
During the regular school year, our Montessori programming helps our mighty learners build skills and grow in knowledge. We bring this same growth mindset into summer, combined with social and emotional experiences to develop the whole child. Look to our programs for the grace and courtesy of Montessori education, combined with fun, age-appropriate indoor and outdoor activities.
In a world changed by COVID-19, providing educational and social enrichment outside of the home will be essential to ensure that your child develops and maintains the skills needed for school in the fall. Our non-parented licensed childcare programs include a different theme each week, special guests and presenters, indoor and outdoor exploration, and much more. We are an accredited daycare facility, and welcome families who receive subsidy.
With COVID-19 safety in mind, we are excited to welcome back our special guests this summer! Attendees will enjoy presentations from Mad Science, Outdoors In, Jumping Jellies, Reptile Show, and many more!
Unique sensory experiences
From gardening to individual water play, sand exploration to playdough, pets and more, our programs bring new experiences to your child.
Our focus is your family's health.
In our changing world, it's important to find programming that emphasizes sanitization and cleanliness. Based on our excellent history and our close partnership with Alberta Health Services and Provincial Licensing, Aspen Hill Montessori was one of the few childcare Centres permitted to provide services to Essential Services workers from March 2020 and forward during the heart of the pandemic. Our advanced health procedures include small class cohorts, multiple hand sanitization / hand washing points throughout the day, temperature checks three times per day, staggered entry and exit approaches, and much more. We also have a strict no-illness policy in place.

"Maria loved attending your summer programs - it gave her a chance to get out of the house, and helped her meet neighbourhood friends."
"I was worried that Peter would be too young to be away from home, but he always came home with a new craft or song and a big smile on his face. Thank you for providing childcare while I worked."
"I wanted my child to have company other than her nanny for the summer. She really enjoyed coming for childcare for the summer. I appreciate the service!"
