While young moms complete their high school education at Braemar School, Terra provides a quality learning environment for their children at our Child and Family Support Centre.

Having child care on-site at the school makes all the difference for young families—moms can visit their children outside of class time, have peace of mind knowing their children are only a few steps away and are fully supported to nurse if they choose.

A young mom at Braemar School spends time with her son between classes.

The Child and Family Support Centre accommodates 77 children ranging in age from three weeks to three years. This accredited program stimulates children’s natural curiosity and enhances growth in all areas of development. Our educators emphasize the parent and child relationship and help lay the foundation for healthy social interactions and relationships.

Alberta Government Early Learning and Child Care (ELCC) Centre

In April 2018, the Alberta Government selected our Child and Family Support Centre as an ELCC centre. Together with other centres in Alberta, we are helping to increase access to affordable, quality child care for families.

This initiative has enabled Terra to:

  • offer enhanced support for children with additional needs
  • provide increased professional development and resources for our educators
  • strengthen implementation of Alberta’s Early Learning and Care Curriculum Framework
  • hire a Child and Family Liaison staff member to work directly with children and families enrolled at the centre, supporting families in accessing additional community services to benefit the development and well-being of their child.
