Day Care

Day Care

The MFRC's full-time licensed day care provides an inclusive, encouraging environment for children between the ages of 12 months and six years. The day care uses Alberta’s Early Learning and Child Care Curriculum framework to guide our programming.

Families in Alberta are likely to encounter waiting lists while attempting to secure a place for their children. The MFRC maintains an extensive waitlist which can be upwards of two to three years and is constantly changing. It is recommended that parents add their children on to our waitlist as soon as possible.

For more information on our day care and to apply for a place on our waiting list, please email, call (780) 973-4011 ext. 6300, or visit the MFRC reception.

Children of full-time serving military members are given priority. If space is available the day care accepts class A reservists, retired military members, civilian DND employees, and general civilians, however they may be given 30 days written notice of termination if their child's spot is required by a full-time serving military member.

As of March 31, 2021 the Alberta government concluded the Early Learning and Child Care Centre program, which means the MFRC day care fees are no longer capped at $25/day per child. Please contact us for information on our current fees.
