Why we do what we do

our mission

Mission
Statement:

SIGIS Child Care Society fosters a safe, respectful and supportive environment that inspires children and educators to reach their full potential. Educators invest in building connections with the children that develop warm, caring, nurturing and stable relationships. We provide a curriculum that enables each child to develop new skills to prepare the child for the future. This is done while encouraging children to express their ideas about their surroundings through participation in the program.

our Society

How we
Operate

SIGIS Child Care Society was formed in August of 1994 as a non-profit society. SIGIS Child Care is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors, which consists of parents, residents of St. Albert, and any other community member interested in quality child care.

SIGIS parents are encouraged to participate on the SIGIS Board. Monthly board/parent meetings are held virtually or in person and parents are encouraged to attend and have an active role in determining the quality of child care the children receive.

our philosophy

An Emphasis
on Learning

Educators are aware of the developmental milestones of the children and build onto them by incorporating them into a curriculum focus. Planning is high quality while challenging children's thinking and creativity. This is done by weaving an educational component into the lesson plans. Educators set the foundation for children to be ready for school.

Our Daycare

Our Daycares, in two convenient locations in St. Albert, foster learning through play.

SIGIS provides a well-enhanced environment that allows children the opportunity to extend their learning and strengthen cognitive connections. Enhanced areas are more inviting and fun for the children and encourage exploration while bringing in real-life components that promote learning.

Our Out of
School Care

SIGIS Out of School Care Programs are located throughout many St. Albert schools.

SIGIS provides a well-enhanced environment that captivates the advanced needs and interests of school-aged children. In addition to enhanced play spaces, a variety of project-based activities are provided to facilitate and build on their quest for knowledge while developing great relationships with their peers

Our
